About the Boot and Shoe Travelers Association of New York (B&STA of New York)
The B&STA of New York celebrated its 75th anniversary of incorporation in June of 2014. The organization was established in 1906 by sales executives with one necessity in mind: to have a regional event that facilitated presenting lines to as many retailers in the Northeast possible. The purpose of the show has always been to help members by creating an event that can help them see a large number of customers in two days, in one building.
The Show Chairman and past President, Danny Lakin, has served for philanthropic organizations such as TwoTen as (past) Vice President and as a board member of the National Shoe Travelers Association. Today he continues to help the industry and his colleagues build events where vendors and retailers can create valuable relationships.
