Materials at WSA to bring great opportunity for footwear brands
May '08
Following the successful launch of the Materials at WSA in February 2008, the next edition will take place in Las Vegas, 27-29 July 2008.

The latest and most innovative materials, components and manufacturing and sourcing options available to the footwear and accessories industry will be on display.

Leading names and niche up-and-coming suppliers will launch new materials, techniques and applications for all sectors of the footwear supply chain to the US industry for the first time.

A host of new exhibitors have signed up with the July show and joining the line-up will be industry leaders including Swarovski and E&R / Feng Shern, sitting alongside 'green' pioneers such as Bio-Tec Environmental.

Major brand names from across the globe – including Europe and South America – join a large array of leading Asian companies such as Daewoo, Henan Prosper and Hanshin Korea, all looking to expand their sales network in the US.

Courtney Harold, show director, Materials at WSA comments, “At Materials at WSA we have created a marketplace for the most innovative and cutting-edge products to be launched into the US footwear, handbag and accessory industry.

The show offers design, development and sourcing professionals the opportunity to meet with important suppliers from every key category, many of which do not show at any other event in the US.“

July's first time exhibitors and launches to the US market include, Korean giant, Daewoo, who has chosen Materials at WSA at which to launch its 1.0mm coated microfiber for athletic & casual shoes, while CRYSTALLIZED (Swarovski) joins the list of debut exhibitors.
