VoxelMatters is partnering with Footwearology, a leading company committed to driving innovation and technological advancements within the footwear industry through education and research, to support the upcoming FOOTPRINT 3D event in Barcelona.
FOOTPRINT3D (see the official website here) looks to bridge the gap between the footwear industry and digital manufacturing. Set in the beautiful city of Barcelona at Industrial Akroll (Carrer de Corominas, 22, 08902 L’Hospitalet de Llobregat), FOOTPRINT3D aims to connect suppliers, manufacturers, and tech leaders with forward-thinking brands and designers to create real solutions and drive innovation within the industry.
The event’s primary purpose is to provide a platform for partners to showcase their cutting-edge technologies and share insights into groundbreaking advancements in the field. By learning about these emerging technologies, brands and designers gain valuable knowledge on how they can integrate these innovations into their own workflow, leading to enhanced product development, sustainability and competitive advantages. Visitors can expect engaging panel talks, an exciting exhibition of innovative projects and exciting networking opportunities, allowing attendees to forge meaningful partnerships.
