The Atlanta Shoe Market
Where Buyers and Sellers Come Together
A Must Attend Show in the Footwear Industry!
The Atlanta Shoe Market is an industry-owned and –operated shoe trade fair, sponsored by the Southeastern Shoe Travelers Association (SESTA). It is held twice annually, in February and August, featuring spring and fall styles respectively, at the Cobb Galleria Convention Centre in Atlanta, GA.
The trade show has grown steadily in size and stature and is now considered the National Shoe Show. Today, more than 1800 lines of footwear, as well as accessories and handbags, are represented, from salon to branded business, including comfort, women’s, men’s, athletic and children’s.
Over the years the show has built a reputation for being the industry’s most productive event, a “working show” where buyers meet with sellers and place their orders for the upcoming season. The show is also noted for its ease and convenience – easy to get to and convenient to work with everything under one roof.
According to SESTA Executive Director Laura Conwell-O’Brien, “Our goal has been simply to make it as efficient as possible for retailers and manufacturers to conduct business.”
