The event showcased various tools being used by The University of Georgia's students in the Design and Merchandising areas, as well as the work students are completing and research they are conducting. Attendees were also informed of the support The University of Georgia has received from The Georgia Soft Goods Educational Foundation, which has funded work such as the research of more eco-friendly resources for textile products.

As a Platinum sponsor of the event, this spring Lectra will name one student at the University of Georgia as the Lectra scholar of the year. Also for one year the CAD classroom will be recognized as the "Lectra classroom". "Lectra is proud to support the education efforts of the Georgia Soft Goods Educational Foundation", says Roy Shurling, President of Lectra North America. "Educating today's students is integral to the success of the industry's future."

"We were honored to have Lectra return this year as a Platinum sponsor of the event," said Mike Fralix, President of Georgia Soft Goods Education Foundation. "The support of those in the Soft Goods Industry, like Lectra, is key and a testament to the value of the future generation of industry professionals, and we are grateful for their support in our efforts to attract qualified individuals into the sewn products industry."
