NE & NW Footwear & Apparel Materials shows

NE Show — Boston, MA — March 3-4, 2015

NW Show — Portland, OR — March 10-11, 2015

The NE Apparel & Footwear Materials show is held at the Doubletree hotel Boston North shore in Danvers Massachusetts. It.s a well.focused sourcing show incorporating around 90 stands from local, national and international vendors and attracts many visitors from local brands such as Converse, Timberland, Puma and New Balance, as well as other nationally.based footwear and apparel companies. The NW Apparel & Footwear Materials show, held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, is the long established predecessor to the NE show held the week before. This well.focused sourcing show houses more than 190 stands from local, national and international vendors and has been established since 1994. Both shows offer a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and make the ideal venues for networking.

As other similar shows are losing momentum and in some cases have ceased all together the NE & NW shows are growing in popularity with a noticeable increase in both attendees and exhibitors year on year. SATRA would highly recommend these well.focused shows to anyone in the footwear industry, either as an attendee or exhibitor.

SATRA has been exhibiting at both shows since 2010 and we look forward to seeing you there in 2015. NE Show booth 102 . NW Show booth 204
