The Leather Research Laboratory has organised the Leather Orientation Seminar for August 2 - 3, 2007 at the University of Cincinnati. The Leather Orientation Seminar is designed specifically for the leather product manufacturing and use industries.

This intensive two day seminar will provide participants with the knowledge and understanding necessary to make strategic decisions on leather choice and performance specification development/ compliance. Leather product designers and engineers representing the aircraft, automotive, furniture, garment, and personal leather goods industries will learn how leather is manufactured, how to evaluate its suitability for the intended end use, and how to comply with national and international consumer safety and labelling requirements. Through a combination of carefully developed classroom presentations and laboratory demonstrations, participants will find answers to questions that are critical to company reputation and profitability.
