The future of the shoe industry

The International Union of Shoe Industry Technicians' (UITIC)  next congress will take place in China in 2021 and will be hosted by the China Leather Industry Association.

Since 1972, congress has united footwear experts from around the world and is organised in two sessions. The first day is dedicated to visiting footwear companies, while the second day is dedicated to presentations and technical talks. The Scientific Committee is responsible for selecting presentations that will contribute to the sector.

UITIC's next congress is a unique opportunity to understand the future of the industry. UITIC's President Yves Moren said the last edition in Porto exceeded everyone's expectation with 540 delegates from 33 countries gathered.

"I hope professionals take this opportunity to come back to China and discover how this country is preparing the future of the sector."

The 2021 event will be the second time the congress has been held in China, following the 18th edition, in 2018, in Dongguan and Guangzhou.
