The Footwear Industry’s Executive Summit is held Wednesday–Thursday, April 3–4, 2019 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 April 4th in Washington, DC for our 2019 summit focused on shifting consumer behaviors and the ongoing retail revolution impacting our industry.
