Over the years, our association has grown to represent more than 150 companies from all over the world who are involved in every phase of our diverse industry, centered around a common goal: promoting high standards and best practices for reuse and recycling of textiles and related secondary materials.

While 2020 has presented many significant challenges, we continually adapt the meet the needs of our members and communities – and, our high-quality networking opportunities are not exempt! We are proud to say SMART’s regional programming is no longer restricted by geographic location, as we will gather together digitally later this month

Here are the 5 reasons why:

  1. Our Digital Summit offers a great opportunity for companies to network and meet other members from the comfort of your home or office.
  2. While virtual, our event’s platform still allows participants to gather in smaller groups to discuss what’s most important to them.
  3. SMART’s content is top-notch. Hear from industry experts across a wide variety of categories, including, but not limited to used clothing, wipers, and governmental affairs.
  4. NEW members will be recognized during the event and connected with many companies to do business with.
  5. Our Digital Summit comes at a GREAT cost ($100/person) for our members – and, because it’s virtual, your business will save on travel and lodging costs.
