Registration for the 21st UITIC Congress is now open
Registration is now open for the 21st International Technical Footwear Congress of the International Union of Shoe Industry Technicians (UITIC) to be held from 19 to 22 September 2023 in Milan and Vigevano, under the topic: "Moving towards sustainability through innovation". For this edition, UITIC is collaborating with Assomac, the organiser of Simac Tannig Tech and co-host of the event. This is the most important opportunity for brands, manufacturers and experts to reflect and exchange views on innovations, technology and trends in the footwear industry.
Innovation and sustainable development must undeniably link up to ensure the viability of the company, as sustainability is becoming increasingly relevant both for society and for consumers, who see it as a value to be considered when making purchasing decisions. It is therefore a mistake to neglect sustainable innovation when creating products, services and equipment.
In this context, and under the topic "Moving towards sustainability through innovation", UITIC has organised a congress that will focus:
- Products, Materials and Consumers of Tomorrow.
- Digital Transformation.
- Human Capital for Industry 5.0.
- Successful Sustainability Stories.
For this 21st edition, the organisation has designed an all-round program that includes, in addition to the technical sessions, factory visits and a visit to Simac Tanning Tech, a welcome cocktail and a gala dinner at the Castle of Vigevano.
To participate in the Congress, there is still time to submit your presentation proposal. The deadline for the submission of papers is the 15th of May.
