The 25th IAF World Apparel Convention will be held this year on November 18th – 20th.

Renowned speakers from leading apparel companies will speak about the following topics:
• From vertical integration to virtual integration: a way forward?
• Asia: From a sourcing hub to a fashion destination
• Fair Trade: is it really fair?
• India: a destination to partnerships: an exciting retail opportunity for international fashion
• Branding into emerging markets: dealing with cultural influences on apparel fashion
• From fashion savvy to tech savvy: technology to the rescue of fast fashion
