“Too often industry professionals have to deal with conflicting events, tight calendars, tight travel budgets, and long travel distances. By compacting these dual events into one week at a mid-continent destination point between the East and West Coasts we have made it easier on everyone,” avers Mel Berzack, Chairman at SPESA and President of Sewn Products Equipment Co.

The seventh edition of the Advancements in Manufacturing Technologies Conference is being designed to help manufacturers of sewn products improve their quality and manufacturing efficiencies as well as reducing their lead-times required for production. The conference will witness presentations by leading players of the industry like ‘Exploring Collaboration in A Globalized Apparel Product Development Process’ by Tukatech, ‘Advancements in Apparel and Fashion Product Development’ by EFI Optitex USA, ‘Sewing Quality Must Be Engineered into Your Products to Achieve Best Results’ by A&E, ‘The Purpose of Proper Planning in the Cutting Room’ by Morgan Tecnica America, and ‘The Potential of Technology Creating Disruption!’ by Sewn Products Equipment Co.
