IAF World Fashion Convention to begin from Sept 22
Jun '13
The online registration for the 29th IAF World Fashion Convention in September (22-25) this year in Shanghai-Kunshan is now open via IAF’s website.

This year’s convention theme is “How to create value in the global fashion supply chain”.

In two days different speakers from international well known brands will touch upon the convention theme. Focus will be on branding and on marketing in China. Sourcing, Supply chain strategies and innovation will feature as well.

The 29th edition of IAF’s annual convention is a historic one, since it is the first time that IAF will hold its annual event in China.

The event will be held in the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel in Kunshan near Shanghai.  Co-organizer of the event is CCCT, the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Clothing and Textiles.

What to expect?

A strong matchmaking program is available with privileged access for delegates. We have top speakers from all continents and from brands, manufacturers and suppliers. They will share with you their vision on the industry.

The Convention covers both branding and the supply chain, making it unique in the global fashion industry and adding value for executives needing to understand both as well as the connection between them. This convention is more than content; it is an event with a traditionally excellent social program at unique venues.
