Together with the Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI), the International Apparel Federation (IAF) is holding the 32nd IAF World Fashion Convention in India on September 27-28, 2016.

According to an IAF press release, the convention will be held at the Trident Nariman Point Hotel in Mumbai, India with the theme 'Insights into New Opportunities'.

India has one of the world's fastest growing economies and is on a close watch by international brands, retailers and manufacturers and so serves as an excellent backdrop for the convention's theme.

“Clearly, India offers many opportunities but good insights are required to capitilise on them,” the global apparel trade body added in the press release.

With action inducing debate and exchange of ideas, the convention will cover a broad range of strategic issues such as sourcing, retailing, technology and branding.

“Traditionally, IAF Conventions travel the globe and combine deep local insights and industry involvement with a true global outlook and a global participation of speakers and delegates,” IAF observed.

“So, the convention's speakers cast, will again form a strong combination of Indian and international industry leaders from brands, retailers, manufacturers, academia and suppliers to the industry,” IAF stated.

Past speakers at IAF conventions include top executives from Hugo Boss, H&M, Inditex, Desigual, G-Star, Esquel, Tommy Hilfiger, Zegna and Benetton.

To support the convention's unique denim session, denim expert Adriano Goldschmied has already accepted to be a speaker.

Including Adriano Goldschmied, confirmed speakers include executives from VF, Arvind, WGSN, Lectra, Shoppers Stop and Bestseller with many more to follow. (AR)
