News from The Materials Show


The Northwest’s favorite materials and componentry show was back for another great event, August 15-16, 2018 at the Oregon Convention Center. Nearly 2,000 people walked the show floor, finding inspiration and making sales and connections with 300 vendors from around the world in the footwear and apparel industries. Show highlights included:

Face-to-Face Vendor Relations

The NW Materials Show is the West Coast’s premier opportunity for footwear and apparel suppliers and buyers to start and grow lasting relationships face-to-face. The show welcomed suppliers from across the globe and some of the industries’ biggest buyers, including Nike, adidas, Columbia, Patagonia and more. Networking opportunities extended beyond the show floor to lunches, cocktail mixers and breakout sessions.

A Chance to Touch & Feel New Product

The show floor offered an opportunity to hold, test and feel the product lines of hundreds of vendors and see their latest innovations—without the back-and-forth of email requests for swatches. The Materials Show puts the world of material and componentry in the hands of attendees.
