As part of the Texprocess Forum programme, the International Apparel Federation (IAF) is organising a panel discussion titled ‘Making technology work in fashion’ in Hall 5.0 C06 on May 5, 2015.

The panelists of this session will be Murat Aydin, owner Modega from Turkey; Guido Brackelsberg, founder, Setlog Group, Germany and Günter Veit, president Veit Group also from Germany.

Other panelists include Mike Fralix, CEO at [TC] ² from the US; Philippe Ribera, marketing director at Lectra; Simon Fernandes, regional director at Alvanon and Nicholas Smith, general manager at Bayer Material Science.

The discussion will be introduced by Rahul Mehta, president of IAF and also president CMAI, India and it will be moderated by Matthijs Crietee, secretary general of the IAF.

“The Texprocess Fair provides the apparel industry with a great overview of what improvements to our industry technology makes possible,” IAF said in a press release.

The panel discussion will focus on the actual implementation of technology by the industry and only when companies are really able to use the technology will they earn back their investment,” IAF added.

Representatives from industry associations, technology and solution providers and manufacturers will share their real experiences.

This panel will give a unique insight into the actual barriers the industry faces to implementing technology available as well as solutions on how these barriers can be overcome.

IAF said it is important to provide a platform for industry wide discussions on a global level about themes that are crucial to the continuous improvement of the industry.

IAF’s global membership, combining the interests of brands, retailers and manufacturers and all combinations, make it an ideal platform to discuss issues where solutions are rooted in supply chain cooperation.

This panel will tackle important subjects like; ‘How to deal with financing of investments and returns on investment that are spread across the supply chain’ and also ‘How to motivate people within companies to make the change’.

Other subjects include; ‘What are new business models for the future that help industry profit from the new opportunities offered by technology’. (AR)
