The major challenges of our industry today can only realistically be met when there is true collaboration between buyers and the key actors in their supply chains. Actually going beyond that, more than ever, garment manufacturers play a pivotal role in a successful industry transformation. From the perspective of the Bangladesh industry, this means that actually the Bangladeshi apparel industry is a source of solutions to the industry’s current major problems.
Unlocking these solutions requires investments. And investments require money and collaboration. A focus on investments, whether these are made by individual companies, or by the entire industry (i.e. in standardization) will create the kind of hands-on, business like and solution oriented yet wholistic approach that would be good to distinguishes the IAF World Fashion Convention from many other conferences.
The IAF Convention caters to apparel industry leaders from across the supply chain, from all continents. This convention is a unique opportunity to gain the insights necessary to understand where our industry is heading. Top speakers from across the globe cover the width of the supply chain, from raw materials to apparel sourcing and from production to retail trends. On top of that, the convention provides an excellent opportunity to meet the global industry in one location in a few days time.
