Register Now for the 2019 SPESA Executive Conference

We're excited to announce that registration for the 2019 SPESA Executive Conference is officially open! Taking place October 29 and 30 in New Orleans, the event is open to SPESA members, their customers, and anyone interested in learning more about the future of the sewn products industry.

In addition to inspiring keynote speakers and interactive sessions with the audience, this year’s conference will feature three panels of industry experts focusing on current and future manufacturing trends:

  • Reshoring, Near-shoring, and What it Means to be “Made in U.S.A.” – Today’s consumers want customization, made-to-order products, and a good story. Speakers on this panel will discuss whether or not reshoring is the best choice for you.
  • Sewn Products Equipment and Suppliers of the Americas – That’s what SPESA is all about, and this panel is all about the opportunities and challenges that come with manufacturing sewn products in North, Central, and South America.
  • Mitigating Your China Exposure – Whether it’s high labor costs, tariff wars, or ethical concerns, mass production in China is becoming an increasingly unappealing option for many manufacturers and suppliers. Learn how other companies are dealing with this issue and explore alternative strategies for your company.

Each panel will provide ample opportunity for you to ask questions and gain the information you need on the topics most important to you.

Register now to take advantage of our early bird discounted rate. And don't forget to book your hotel room at the beautiful, newly-renovated JW Marriott. A discounted rate of $208 will be available until October 6 or until rooms sell out.
