On Thursday morning, shoes took a backseat to the booths at FN Platform, when show organizers presented the winners of the best-in-show Booth Awards.
H.S. Trask won for Most Creative Use of Exhibit Space, while Kenneth Cole Productions Inc. took home the award for Most Innovative Booth Interior.
The Best New Exhibitor Award was bestowed on Lisa LeCroy, who used the show to debut her eponymous label. “I’m so excited to be launching here and to win this award,” she said. “I always knew that when I was ready to launch, I wanted to make it happen here, and it’s been amazing.”
While presenting the awards, Leslie Gallin, Advanstar global VP of footwear, said, “These exhibitors have done a tremendous job taking a [standard] booth package and personalizing it without spending a lot of money, and that’s what this show is all about.”
