Silver Jubilee IAF World Apparel Convention to be held in New Delhi, India
The 25th IAF World Apparel Convention will be held this year on November 18th – 20th. A major supplier to the world's fashion markets, India is fast emerging as a promising market for global brands and retailers, which is why it has been chosen as the location for the convention. Otherwise known as the world's largest democracy and melting pot of different cultures, languages, religions and foreign influences, India also contributes significantly to the world's textile and apparel market and the industry forms the backbone of India's recent economic boom.

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
