The hotel has been fully booked. To make hotel arrangements please call the Grand Hyatt directly or make arrangements at a hotel near DC’s Metro Center.
Disruptions to our traditional business models are occurring across the entire footwear supply chain from design to production to retail. At the same time, disruptions to our political model are also occurring, impacting our tax and regulatory environment. We encourage you to attend this important one-day summit to hear from top political leaders and footwear executives about changes impacting our industry and how we can minimize risk this incurs and take advantage of new opportunities.
Last May, almost 200 of the industry’s CEOs, presidents, directors and managers attended FDRA’s Footwear Innovation Summit. This year we expect that number to grow as we continue to have some of the industry’s top executives talk about what they are seeing and best practices they are using to adapt to disruptions…as well as speeches from Members of Congress, U.S. officials, and a special guest speaker to discuss the 2016 Presidential race and political environment.
