From Fashion to Factory: A New Technological Age

Oct 24, 2017 UITIC
From Fashion to Factory: A New Technological Age
The theme of the 20th UITIC Congress was selected to reflect the current moment of constant technological change impacting the worldwide industries and to reflect on its influence in the footwear industry
Modern digital technology is transforming consumer behaviour and the online business will impact the way shopping and retailing are organised. New consumer trends are constantly emerging and the importance of fashion becomes preponderant in every market segment (security, sports, children, senior).

The increased customization, that now dominates the industry, will require new production tools along with flexibility and quick response. Market requirements will push companies to be agile, innovative and technologically proficient, while deepening the relationship with the consumers.
This congress will bring together experts and decision makers playing important roles in the worldwide footwear business, such as brands, retailers, footwear and components manufacturers and technology providers presenting their vision about the future.

The networking opportunities and the visits to some of the most technological advanced companies can bring innovative solutions to cope with the future consumers’ needs and to prepare for the new technological age.
