Las Vegas-based footwear trade show FN Platform is launching an edition in New York from February 2017.
The bi-annual event will take place during womenswear trade show Coterie at the Javits convention centre. The shows will also run alongside Stitch, Moda, Edit and Accessories the Show to offer buyers a full head-to-toe offer.
Meanwhile, footwear show Sole Commerce, also based in New York, will elevate its offer and shift its focus to the luxury market. The show will sit alongside accessories at the centre of Coterie.
“Each year, the show has continued to thrive and these additions will bring continued freshness and opportunity for both sides of the aisle,” said Leslie Gallin, president of footwear at UBM Fashion Group, which owns and runs all the shows mentioned above.
She added: “Footwear is a critical portion of the fashion landscape. The east coast launch will offer a one-stop shopping experience while creating welcoming interest for new brands and retailers from all over the world”.
FN Platform in Las Vegas takes place from August 15 to August 17.
