ASBCI seminar to drive rebuilding UK garment sector
Jan '14
The ASBCI is launching into the new year with details of its forthcoming industry conference – 'Making it in the UK - Ready or not? The reality of manufacturing fashion in Britain'  which is being held on Tuesday 25th February 2014, 10.00am to 4.30pm at the Hinckley Island Hotel, Hinckley, Leicester, LE10 3JA.

ASBCI members have requested the conference as a follow-up to the ‘Made in the UK’ conference it hosted nearly two years ago.

The response to that first conference was overwhelming and since then the drive to re-build the UK’s garment manufacturing sector has gathered momentum. New government and industry funded training schemes and apprenticeships combined with the political will of retailers, brands and indeed consumers to ‘buy British’ is helping rejuvenate the lost world of local production.

The ‘Making it in the UK – Ready or not?’ conference has assembled speakers from the government, fashion retail, brand, manufacturing and training sectors who are having a real impact on rejuvenating the UK’s garment-making industry.

They have each agreed to give practical advice and share their experiences, wisdom and visions in the belief that the UK’s garment making heritage has a vibrant and very real future.  Details are shown below and a full agenda will be forwarded to you in due course.
