Maybe You're Not as Unique as You Think

Registration went live today for the 2020 Advancements in Manufacturing Technologies Conference. While most of our events provide vital industry information for our members, this one is a little different. This one is all about getting information from SPESA members.

Attendees will not only learn about new ideas, solutions, and technology available for the sewn products industry, but also have the chance to ask all the questions they’ve ever wanted answered from the actual people who create the solutions and products they need. The SPESA members who lead this conference are happy to discuss the products they make as well as the challenges they still want to tackle to improve efficiency, speed, and accuracy in sewn products manufacturing. Previous topics include: microfactories, on-demand manufacturing, software connectivity, industry 4.0, robotics, and automation.

But we promise that attendees won’t have to sit through an eight-hour sales pitch. In 2019, we decided to switch things up a bit and organized our speakers into panels tasked with addressing specific issues facing the sewn products industry and the role technology plays in each. Each panel reserved an hour specifically to answer questions from audience members about their unique issues.

Although, one thing we’ve learned is that most of the issues manufacturers deal with aren’t actually that unique, which is why talking about them in a room full of your peers is so beneficial.

The Advancements Conference is meant for sewn products manufacturers – speakers will touch on fashion, apparel, automotive, interior design, furniture upholstery, technical textiles, and more – brands, retailers, suppliers, government officials, and anyone interested in learning more about the latest and greatest innovation in the sewn products industry and what is yet to come.
