In addition to explaining the evolutionary trends in sportswear he will define trends up to and beyond 2012.

Jane Fenton-Smith, product manager, Triumph UK will continue the shape theme in her presentation aptly entitled 'squeeze me, please me' during which she will explain how companies can use the latest shapewear innovations to achieve the perfect figure.

Innovations in fabric and finishes for sportswear will be tackled by Alain Langerock, marketing manager, with Devan Group and John McDonald, product specialist, W. L. Gore & Associates.
