2008 US leather orientation seminar27 June 2008
The Leather Research Laboratory has scheduled the Leather Orientation Seminar for August 5-6, 2008, at the Vernon Manor Hotel in Cincinnati, OH. The Leather Orientation Seminar is designed specifically for the leather product manufacturing and use industries. Professionals involved in leather purchasing, product design, and quality control will benefit, together with chemical companies and newer tannery employees.
This intensive two-day seminar provides participants with the knowledge and understanding necessary to make strategic decisions on leather choice and performance specification development/compliance. The 2008 event will kick-off with a networking reception from 5:00 - 6:30 pm on Monday, August 4, on the Rooftop Garden at the Vernon Manor. Leather product designers and engineers representing the aircraft, automotive, furniture, garment, and personal leathergoods 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. Registration cost is $925. Organisations making two or more seminar reservations at the same time benefit from a reduced fee of $785 per person.
