The Gatwick Show took place at The Holiday Inn Horley, on 24-25th of February 2019. As usual, it was a great place to view over 24 children's brands in one place. Visitors came from the Channel Islands, Ireland and from the South Coast and London to view the best children's ranges from key Kids Brands.

Footwear agent and show organiser, Jeremy Hewitt from Shewitts reported a very good reaction to his Lurchi by Salamander waterproof boots, whilst he also launched our new Back to School Brand be Bold. This brand is designed in the UK by a leading UK designer in standard and wide width fittings, plus English whole and half sizes.

Jeremy told Footwear Today Magazine: “We are

looking for selected UK retailers to Be Bold and help us to further develop the brand. These key retailers are helping us to check both fit and wear so that when the bulk arrives in July they are ready for Back to School.”

“Our other brand Noel Kids, is also being bought well

for Autumn Winter 2019 with the new waterproof boots a great hit.

Inger Breitenstein of Breitenstein Agencies also had a successful show: “I had a really good show at Gatwick and even though most shops are under pressure they all

had strong feedback on sale through of BOBUX and said the demand and following is constantly growing.”

David Roberts, UK Agent, commented: “The Gatwick Show is becoming the main event for Kids shoes in the South. Well organised and held at an excellent venue. The timing is good with attendance similar to last season. BoBell had an excellent reaction to the new winter collection and Back to School range.”

Pauly Tong, the distributor of Froddo shoes for the UK & Ireland said: “The weather was wonderful during the two days in The Gatwick Show and we were worried that some retailers would decide to spend the day on the beach instead. In the end, all retailers attended as planned, including a customer who came all the way from Jersey and spent a whole day with us. Customers came and placed their orders pretty much straight after the show and that was a great result for Froddo, and all our retailers. Thank you all for your support.”

“The Froddo AW19 collection was well received with

over 400 styles to choose from. We were delighted to see that our customers have had another good season with Froddo, and have come back for more. We will be in Gatwick again in the coming September.”

“On the day that I attended the Gatwick Show there were several well-known UK footwear retailers present in the main show room who were obviously placing orders. In the smaller rooms, Sketchers, GEOX and Petasil were busy too.” Cheryl Taylor, Editor Footwear Today Magazine.

“The next Gatwick Show will be on 8th and 9th

September 2019 – we forward to seeing you there.” Jeremy Hewitt.
