WSA is expanding its offering.
The trade show will include Sole Commerce at the next exhibition, to be held Feb. 7-9 in Las Vegas. David Kahan, president of ENK Footwear, said the decision is part of “continued efforts to build and maintain WSA as the premier footwear event in the world.”
“For almost a decade, Sole Commerce has been a highlight of the footwear show calendar in New York, catering to the most discerning of buyers,” Kahan said in a company statement. “The addition of the Sole Commerce Pavilion at WSA will enhance our retailers’ experience, providing them with a glimpse of the best fashion footwear available in the marketplace [and] making WSA truly a one-stop buying venue.”
WSA also will introduce a schedule of seminars on new fashion trends, buying strategies and business practices.
Sole Commerce, along with apparel show Coterie, is also scheduled for Feb. 20-22 in New York.
