FDRA is postponing our upcoming Executive Summit until further notice (likely the early fall time frame) due to the growing impact of the coronavirus. We are doing so for the health and safety of footwear executives and professionals, as well as to be respectful of the new heavy strains this has put on brands’ and retailers’ workflows. We want footwear companies to be 100% focused on their business during this challenging period. We will release new dates for this event in the coming weeks. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Footwear Industry’s Executive Summit will be held at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC, just steps away from the White House.
200 footwear executives attend this annual summit to network and hear footwear leaders discuss how they are guiding their companies in changing times. We invite you to join us [new date TBA] in Washington, DC for our 2020 summit focused:

- How voice is transforming online search and retail sales
