The inaugural Materials at WSA Expo & Conference in Las Vegas has been hailed as a resounding success this week. With the final day still to come 21st February, the Materials Expo has already delivered outstanding visitor numbers, not only that, but the 'right' visitors for the exhibiting companies. Hosting over 100 exhibitors, from over 10 different countries, the event showcased the most innovative material suppliers to the industry.

Spanning the world of materials (including leathers, synthetics and textiles) as well as components, technology and sourcing solutions, industry leaders such as 3M, Dae Woo and Milliken were present, sitting alongside leading Italian tanneries and groundbreaking new innovators from across the globe. In addition to the host of quality exhibitors, the Materials Expo presented four educational seminars, which were sold out.

“We were dedicated to delivering a show that would become a valuable resource to the footwear industry and all the feedback tells me we've done it!” Says Courtney Harold, director of the Materials Expo. “We have been pleased to welcome advanced product developers, through to design teams from leading brands such as Brown Shoe, Old Navy, K-Swiss, Vans, Burton, Quicksilver and Payless, among the many others who have been filling the aisles,” she added.

Diane Stone, chief operating officer adds, “The new show has been an incredible success. Creating a unique business platform, we have united cutting-edge suppliers and serious customers from across the globe, within an established footwear marketplace. I really believe we have created the world's intellectual centre of footwear sourcing.”
