Join us at the 3rd annual Footwear Materials Summit — the only event in the U.S. focused on helping professionals better understand current and emerging materials and material developments at an in-depth technical level. Sessions are led by suppliers and professors with decades of material expertise. Leading materials and innovation leads at top footwear companies will discuss current trends, challenges and best practices. We will also tour the textile development labs. The Materials Summit is designed for material, product development, and sourcing teams looking to learn about new materials and how to better manage cost and quality issues. Last year we had 100 attendees from top brands and retailers – and we hope you will join us as we grow this important educational event!
