The 2023 Material Innovation Conference is Moving Online

Feb 24, 2023 | News

Dear MII Supporter,

Our 2023 Material Innovation Conference is now completely virtual instead of being held in New York. Due to the challenging economic climate, many companies have informed us that they can no longer afford to send representatives to the conference in person. Based on this information, we’ve decided to move the conference online as it will provide a better and more equitable experience for attendees worldwide. The conference is now taking place virtually from 21 – 23 June 2023.

We’d love for you to join us at our online conference. We’ll send you more details on how to access the virtual platform and participate soon. In the meantime, you can register your interest by filling out this form.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We can’t wait to welcome you to the conference! #MIC2023

Best Regards,

Team MII

Why we need next-gen materials

Animal-derived materials, particularly leather, are widely used in the fashion, automotive, and home goods industries. Production of animal-derived materials drives climate change, environmental degradation, public health risks, and animal cruelty. The current generation of alternatives – petroleum-derived synthetics – also comes with serious environmental and social concerns. We need more sustainable, next-gen alternatives with optimal aesthetics and performance. A broad ecosystem of innovators is rapidly growing to address this urgent need.
