On the evening of July 22nd we will have a we will have a special networking reception for attendees thanks to our cocktail sponsor Inspectorio. On July 23, 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 key issues and 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:

  • How Technology is Enhancing Factory Compliance
  • Digital Development and Automation Trends
  • Sustainability Best Practices
  • Sourcing Shifts and Supply Chain Issues
  • Global Trade Analysis Ahead of 2020 Elections

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).

Coming soon.
