On July 24, we will have a full day summit at the New York Stock Exchange exploring global footwear sourcing, supply chain and factory compliance issues and trends.  The event features special keynotes from industry executives as well as panels covering specific countries featuring industry directors and experts.

This is the only sourcing summit focused 100% on footwear. Last year’s summit had 130 footwear sourcing and supply chain execs, directors and managers who walked away with actionable data and analysis. We encourage you to attend to hear from industry experts and leaders discussing:

  • Robotics Changing Factory Production

  • Augmented Reality: Changing How We Design and Sample
  • Material Exchange: Help with Better Material Selection and Management
  • Future Factories – 3D Printed Shoes in Stores?

There are no hotel blocks, but we suggest you stay in downtown NYC near the Stock Exchange. Also, please note NYSE requires a business casual attire (no jeans or sneakers).
