Building on the success of previous years, the theme of this year’s conference will be focused on building a sustainable value chain for the leather industry. A key requirement for all retailers and brands is upstream supply chain transparency.
This year’s event will include presentations which concentrate on the lifecycle of products with sustainability and innovation being key themes. Topics such as effective supply chain mapping, recent developments of the multi-brand ZDHC, alternative materials, innovation in chemistry and animal welfare will feature in presentations during the event.
We promise an exciting line-up of international industry leading specialists, including major brands and/or retailers, tanners, leather supply chain suppliers (machinery/chemicals) and organisations presenting the most up-to-date developments across a range of topical subjects.
