Following the success of its debut seminar in Hong Kong last April, which coincided with the annual spring edition of the Asia Pacific Leather Fair, SATRA will again be hosting a one-day conference at the APLF next year. It will be held on Saturday, 31 March 2001, under the title 'Footwear Material for the 21st Century' between parts one and two of the fair when visitors have more time for extra-curricular activities. The full programme is available from SATRA.
