YOU ARE VIEWING AN EVENT THAT HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE
This event is aimed at SATRA members and non-members including manufacturers, sourcing companies and retailers of all types of footwear and materials. It is ideal for newly appointed as well as more experienced technologists and buyers.
The day is intended to provide delegates with information about the importance of testing footwear, the legislation behind the reasons for testing and the key properties assessed.
Delegates will have the opportunity to meet SATRA’s footwear experts and familiarise themselves with our facilities and procedures.
The day covers a presentation on the importance of testing followed by a tour and talks on a variety of testing topics. After the last talk, delegates are invited to stay to discuss any particular issues they may have in private with one of our experts. A buffet lunch is included.
