FFANY wants to address what appears to be some confusion in the marketplace about the collaboration of FFANY with Informa; as well as the question of scheduling conflicts in upcoming 2019 shows.
FFANY’s calendar is set to address the needs of manufacturers and retailers and their production schedules with FFANY Market Weeks starting the Monday of the first full week of February, June, August and December. While many other shows have rotating dates, our longstanding policy of remaining on these dates is to provide stability and reliability for all facets of the footwear industry.
Looking to gain knowledge and skills in the world of shoemaking? FFANY is proud to partner with the experts at Arsutoria School to bring the 5-day course “The Art of Shoemaking” to Los Angeles from March 12-16. A big thank you to the Two Ten Footwear Foundation, who is offering a full scholarship ($2,500 value) to footwear industry employees looking to advance their careers through education – learn more.
