China to host 2021 UITIC Congress
The next International Union of Shoe Industry Technicians (UITIC) Congress will be held in China in 2021, although details of the host city and dates have not yet been released. This will be the second time the event has taken place in China – the 18th Congress took place in 2013 in the cities of Dongguan and Guangzhou.
A scientific committee will be responsible for selecting contributions from speakers, who normally represent footwear institutes or footwear company research departments from around the world. Recent speakers have included SATRA’s John Hubbard in 2016 and Christine Powley-Williams last year.
