Webinars and Online Resources

New benefit available to SATRA members

With so many exhibitions being cancelled around the world, companies within the footwear industry have had to adapt to different ways of both marketing their products and buying what they need. SATRA therefore recognises the value of an online resource to enable the easy identification of a supplier of shoemaking components, materials or finished footwear – or to achieve greater exposure to potential customers as a producer.

SATRA has collaborated with FindSourcing – a Swedish company that over the past two years has developed an online platform that makes it easier to find a partner in the footwear industry while ensuring transparency in the sourcing process.

Suppliers of finished footwear, components, materials and leather can sign up at no cost to create a FindSourcing profile and have their information indexed. Buyers can filter their searches and contact sellers directly via the system’s database. The program also features a quotation function permitting a buyer to submit details of his or her requirements and receive offers from suppliers. FindSourcing will then connect the buyer directly with the seller. SATRA members who choose to participate can be identified through a specific filter search and highlight their membership, lab accreditation and leather grading status on their profile.

To show how the database can benefit members, a webinar will be held on Wednesday 23rd September at 07:00 BST for manufacturers (with a Chinese translation), and at 16:00 BST for buyers.

How can we help?
