  • Shoe Sustainability & Innovation Summit

    Tuesday, September 17, 2024 | Castaway Portland

    RETHINK! Have we been thinking about shoe sustainability ALL WRONG?!

    There is a huge shift coming in shoe sustainability due to a number of stealth projects coming online. New tools and technologies will change product and processes in ways you cannot anticipate. Our keynote speaker will explain these stealth projects and how you can take advantage ahead of the pack.

    The summit features discussions including sustainability on a shoestring budget, how we can better connect with consumers to sell more sustainable shoes, ways to reduce manufacturing impacts while delivering an ROI, and material innovations with an eye on bio. We will also have a brand discussion panel on company strategy all the way down to product strategy.
