Initially, UITIC, the International Union of Shoe Industry Technicians, had planned to organize its 21st Congress in 2021, in China.
Due to the Covid 19, the Executive Committee Members of UITIC, in agreement with the host organisation, CLIA - China Leather Industry Association, represented by Li Yu Zhong its General Secretary, have taken the decision to have the 21st UITIC International Footwear Congres postponed to 2022.
“China is almost back to normal, but hosting an international congress could be difficult within 2021, due to the Covid 19 impact on transportation.
It is true that it has been a long time since the 20th Congress in Portugal in 2018, however the current situation imposes on us to have a very responsible and cautious organization and invites us to rethink all our processes”, declared Yves MORIN, President of UITC.
This congress will bring together experts and decision makers who all play an important role in the worldwide footwear business, such as brands, distributors and footwear manufacturers.
