Here Are All the Footwear Trade Shows Coming Up in 2021 — In-Person and Online

The 2021 trade show season is underway, though health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be a source of deep concern across the globe.

More-contagious variants of the virus are causing a sharp increase in case numbers, particularly among younger adults and children. However, the rollout of multiple vaccines is prompting glimmers of hope that life could begin to return to normal.

Amid those opposing variables, trade show organizers have introduced a variety of methods to meet the needs of retail buyers and brands, with both in-person and digital marketplaces.

Below is the current lineup of trade events planned for all of 2021. FN will continue to update this list with any new developments regarding date or venue changes.
