ELCHE (Spain) will be hosting the XVI Congress of The International Union of Shoe Industry Technicians next October.

The International Union of Shoe Industry Technicians (UITIC) is organising its XVI International Footwear Congress that will be held from 16th to 18th October 2008 in Elche (Alicante) Spain. The Congress will focus on the advantages of technology in design, production and trading of footwear.

During the last meeting of the UITIC Executive Committee in Elda (Alicante), the definite dates for the forthcoming UITIC Congress to be held in the city of Elche were agreed: 16th to 18th October 2008.

This way, the most important meeting of footwear professionals world-wide returns to Europe, and in particular to Spain, after the successful edition in Tunisia in 2005.The Spanish city of Elche, traditionally known world-wide for its footwear industry will be hosting the XVI UITIC Congress. It is hoped that Elche will live up to the expectations of all footwear manufacturers and that more than 300 representatives from Spain and other foreign countries attend the Conference Centre in order to debate on the advantages of technology for footwear trading and production processes.

Dr César Orgilés, President of UITIC, stated that the Congress will thoroughly assess the advantages of technology in all phases of the footwear industry, taking the Consumer as the starting point, focusing on improved comfort and services. The Congress sessions will be categorised into five different subheadings: Consumer, Product Innovation, Technology, Management and Sustainable Development.
