Following the success of the Footwear industry Awards 2014 sponsored by Clarks, the leading retailer and manufacturer has signed up as the event’s main sponsor once again.

Head of Sales Adam Marsden said: “Clarks is delighted to sponsor the Footwear Industry Awards which celebrates the best of footwear retailing in both Independent and Multiple retailer categories as well as recognising the best of the brands which support them. We are proud to be working with a large number of these retailers and to play a part in celebrating their success. The awards are an important event in the annual footwear calendar and are well attended by a cross section of the footwear industry providing a great opportunity to meet up with other retailers/brands and catch up with friends.”

Rieker also returns to sponsor Ladies Footwear Brand of the Year, joined by Remonte which is sponsoring ‘National Shop Front of the Year’. Managing Director Chris Gorrod said: “Rieker and Remonte are once again delighted to be associated with, and sponsors of, the Footwear Industry Awards. The event is a well organised and enjoyable evening bringing together all aspects of the Footwear trade. With so much hard work put in over the year, having an evening where the trade can sit down and recognise individuals and/or companies for outstanding efforts is a worthwhile event.”
