SATRA experts will be presenting an up to date overview of a number of Footwear Innovation  topics at an event in Porto on 18th February 2020. This is a free seminar for SATRA members. 

The European footwear industry remains a major source of fashion, lifestyle and performance shoes and is supported by a comprehensive infrastructure supplying materials and components. SATRA Technology works closely with many of the companies in this sector and we consider it essential that we meet regularly to discuss what products and services we can offer, and how we can meet the continually changing requirements of these companies.

The topics to be discussed will include:

- European Foot Scanning and Global Foot Dimensions: An overview of SATRA’s global foot dimensions project with a specific look at differences in foot geometry between men and women, global locations and age.

- Fitting Aids: Exploring the problems and difficulties in performing fit assessments and learning about the new products in development at SATRA that aim to simplify the process.

- Digital Last Assessment: Advancements in last assessment services and how they can predict comfort and coverage factors of finished footwear during the design stage.

- Mondopoint Sizing: A review of the complications in modern shoe sizing and their effects on commerce and how Mondopoint can reduce confusion and costs.

The seminar will also provide an opportunity for members to ensure they are accessing their Member Benefits. The day will commence at 10.00 and finish at 16.00 and lunch will be included.

Please contact to reserve places as these are limited.

We look forward to seeing you there.
