Advancements in Manufacturing Technologies Conference

September 13, 2022

Detroit, MI 

SPESA’s Advancements in Manufacturing Technologies Conference is a unique opportunity to not only learn about new ideas, solutions, and technology available for the sewn products industry, but to also ask all the questions you’ve ever wanted answered from the people who create the solutions and products you need.

The 2022 Advancements Conference will be held in conjunction with the Detroit Auto Show. Advancements Conference attendees and speakers will receive a floor pass to the Auto Show.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

The cornerstone of the SPESA event calendar is the annual SPESA Executive Conference. The two-day event features a combination of keynote speakers, panel discussions, and industry case studies to provide an opportunity for attendees to both learn and engage. This conference aims to build communication among both speakers and attendees to address the issues facing our industry and find solutions together.


Each iteration of the Executive Conference is in a new city to ensure it is accessible to interested sewn products professionals. We effectively balance educational sessions with casual off-site events providing an opportunity to make both business connections and lifelong friends within the industry we all love.


The 2023 Executive Conference will be hosted in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
