The Footwear Industry Awards recognise those in the industry who display innovation and forward thinking, alongside traditional sales and business acumen. Organised by Datateam Business Media for the industry, with the support of the British Footwear Association (BFA), the Independent Footwear Retailer’s Associaton (IFRA), Society of Shoe Fitters (SSF) and Footwear Today, the event is always a night to remember and enjoy.

With the plans already in motion for a fantastic evening, we are pleased to announce that we have already signed up our returning sponsors Clarks, Cherry Blossom, Out on a Limb, pediped and Rieker as sponsors of the event.

Rieker returns to sponsor ‘Ladies Independent Retailer of the Year’; Chris Gorrod commented: “Rieker remains proud to be a sponsor and associated with the annual Footwear Awards.  The annual event is an excellent way for the Footwear industry to come together and acknowledge companies and individuals who have excelled in the past 12 months. It is also a wonderful way to see and catch up with colleagues from all over Footwear Industry in the UK.”

pediped have returned as a sponsor for the ‘Children’s Retailer of the Year’.  Matt Wright, UK sales director commented:  “We are delighted to sponsor the Children’s Retailer of the Year once again.  We deal with the best retailers in the UK and witness how hard they work to make their businesses a success.  We look forward to announcing and handing over the award to the deserved winner”
