RE3144P - The Material Exchange: One Year On and Its Impact on the Apparel & Footwear Industry!

Until the summer of 2018, the process of finding and developing materials had remained largely unchanged, even as the world moved towards managing product lifecycle data as well as designing and developing product in a digital environment. At LiveWorx 2018, The 'Material Exchange' was launched, providing an industry-wide solution for sharing, collaborating, and developing materials (such as leather, textiles and hardware) in a completely digital marketplace. This session will discuss the profound impact the Material Exchange has had on material selection and the broader industry over the past year (since its launch), and will explore what's next for the Material Exchange.
