After 13 years the International Apparel Federation (IAF) will return to Hong Kong for its annual convention. The 26th IAF World Apparel Convention will be held from 5 - 7 October 2010 in the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Nearly 300 delegates across the apparel supply chain, including key industry executives from around the world will gather in Autumn 2010 to explore how retailer brands, internet and green manufacturing are transforming the fashion business. The convention will run in tandem with Interstoff Asia Essential Autumn.

The fashion sector has been hit by the global financial upheaval, albeit with a certain delay. Revenue growth has stagnated and in many cases companies and brands have experienced a decrease in sales. Prices have been under pressure, margins have suffered and consumers have cut donw their spending on clothing. On the other hand creativity and innovation offer new possibilities in a world that becomes more and more digital.

The 26th IAF World Apparel Convention in Hong Kong will help participants identify winning strategies and ideas for production, sourcing and distribution of fashion. Difficult times are also times of opportunity. It is during such times that careful sourcing, advanced IT systems, coherent environmental and social responsibility policies and innovative design and marketing can make a huge difference.
