SFIA wrapped up our first-ever virtual conference, which took place on September 23-24, hosting executives and experts from across the industry to share insight, data and expertise on the current climate. The Back on Track: Insights and Strategies virtual conference explored the sports and fitness industry's approach to COVID-19 challenges and opportunities after many months of marketplace disruption. Presentations covered all aspects of the pandemic, as well as other pertinent issues, such as advocating for more diverse and inclusive work environments. All Back on Track attendees continue to have access to recordings of the one-on-one interviews, presentations and group discussions that took place throughout the event.

The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) submitted its final recommendations for duty relief via the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) earlier this month. Congress is expected to pass the MTB relief recommendations submitted by USTR and send them to the President for his signature by the end of the year to avoid any disruption in MTB relief. The new MTB will provide duty relief on eligible products from January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2023
SFIA initiated its MTB effort in 2019 and had a 97 percent success rate on its duty relief petitions.
