Where are the growth opportunities and how can you best take advantage of them? This session will give an update on the most important markets. Hear what some of the leaders in the global arena are saying.

Manufacturing Technology
It's important for all apparel and sewn products manufacturers to stay current with new developments in technology. This session will provide information to help manufacturers improve their quality and manufacturing efficiency while at the same time reducing costs and the lead-time required in today's production environment. Advancements in such areas as spreading, cutting, and sewing will be included. This session will also provide details about the features and functions that can later be explored with vendors exhibiting on the show floor.

Doing Business with the U.S. Government
The increasing complexity of today's global environment demands that U.S. Forces, now more than ever, be equipped with state of the art clothing and equipment allowing them to execute their missions successfully.

It will be kicked off by Brigadier General John McGuiness, Deputy Commanding General of U.S. Army Research, Development & Engineering Command (RDECOM), and Commanding General of Natick Soldier Systems Center. Several company and trade association senior leaders will also discuss their experiences in dealing with the military and other government agencies. All speakers will be available for challenging questions from the audience.
