The Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas (SPESA) is pleased to announce that SPESA EXPO FORUM, the educational component of the May 18-20 trade show and exposition held in Atlanta, Georgia, will offer fashion and sewn products executives and professionals more than 30 informative and thought-provoking workshops and seminars.

Headlining the SPESA EXPO Forum will be a special pre-show (Monday, May 17) workshop on “Exploring Lean Business Practices” and an executive conference on “Building the Supply Chain of the Future”. A headliner breakfast on the opening day of the show (Tuesday, May 18) will focus on “Global Sourcing Perspectives”. Seminars running concurrent to exhibition hours on May 18-19 include:

• Design: 2D/3D design, virtual fit, color and trend forecasting.
• Product Development: PLM, fit and color management, materials development, CAD/CAM, and lean product development, and costing.
• Global Sourcing and Supply Chain Management
• Manufacturing: Advanced technologies, cutting room management, preventative maintenance, capacity planning, alternative manufacturing systems, and lean manufacturing.
• Distribution: RFID, trade agreements, 10+2 and CPSIA compliance.
• Sustainability, Labor and Environmental Compliance, and Green Fashion

Wrapping up the forum on Thursday, May 20 will be a special session on “How to Sell the U.S. Government”.

“We are proud to offer our most comprehensive and diverse educational component ever,” noted SPESA President Benton Gardner. “This lineup reflects our 2010 event expansion into virtually every segment of the fashion and sewn products industry and across the entire concept-to-delivery business process.”
