The steady growth of the CantonSF SHOE FAIR can be seen by comparing exhibiting area, exhibitor numbers and the amount of exhibitors who have been present every year since the event’s conception in 2002. And the exhibitors’ opinion of the show is becoming more optimistic and confident with 81.39% stating their intention to return for the next edition.

As regards the trade buyers, there has been a continuous rise for every edition, including the number of the overseas buyers from over 150 countries and regions. A VIP membership program was initiated at the last fair to provide more services; and some 1,210 overseas buyers have registered as VIP members for this edition.

The organising committee of the CantonSF SHOE FAIR has been promoting the exhibition by visiting the principal leather exhibitions in Italy, Türkiye, America, India, and Brazil.
