SATRA’s next series of technical seminars for footwear companies to be held in Dongguan.

Each of the sessions in this new seminar programme will be led by SATRA experts Liam Donnelly, John Hubbard, Steve Rose and Ray Wisken, and will cover important issues affecting producers and distributors. Some of the presentations will be reserved exclusively for SATRA members, with other sessions open also to non-members.

On the afternoon of Monday 18th May, the topic under consideration – for SATRA members only – will be ‘leather types and finishes – characterisation, property tests and end-uses’.

The following morning will feature a presentation for both members and non-members explaining the legislation for restricted substances, and will include an overview of European REACH and CPSC in the USA. During the afternoon of 19th May, members and non-members can attend a seminar entitled ‘Getting it right with safety footwear’. This will consider problems and solutions common to safety footwear.

On the morning of Wednesday 20th May, a SATRA members-only event on water-resistant footwear will examine materials, constructions, testing and customer information related to water-resistant footwear. Also reserved for members of SATRA, the session ‘Sustainability in the footwear industry’ on the afternoon of 20th May will cover various aspects of sustainability in the footwear supply chain.

On Thursday 21st May, ‘The technology of stitching’ will be an all-day seminar for SATRA members only which will examine threads, needles, seam construction and the technology of stitching.
