The theme of this year’s annual BLC seminar revolves around strategy, innovation, performance and quality. In a climate where all aspects of life are put under scrutiny from a range of perspectives – from environmental to ethical, more often than not with legislative implications – business is full of potential pitfalls.

A key element of this year’s seminar is to demonstrate the significant links between supply chain needs and how the leather industry responds to these needs at a technical level. It is being held at Highgate House Conference and Training Centre, Northamptonshire, from November 2-3, 2003.
