It is expected to be attended by international business leaders and creative people.

The dialogue is being organised by Santex Rimar Group, Leading Group Office for Development of Employment-Centered Textile and Apparel Industry in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and China Textile Information Centre.

At the forum, international textile business leaders and creative influencers will explore the growth of cutting-edge textile industry from Xinjiang through the new Silk routes. Speakers will focus on textile business, garments and home textiles industries and sustainable development.

Speakers to address the forum include Giovanni Bonotto, creative director, Bonotto; Francesco Dalla Rovere, president, Sinv Holding; Arthur Huang, CEO and founder, Miniwiz;  Pietro Pin, head of new technologies research and development, Benetton Group; Cristiano Seganfreddo, artistic director, Krizia; Calvin Woolley, global supplier development leader, Ikea; Gao Yong, the party committee secretary and secretary-seneral, CNTAC; Liang Yong, deputy secretary-general of People’s Government of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and director of Leading Group Office for Development of Employment-Centered Textile and Apparel Industry In Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

One of the participants at the event is Bonotto, a textile manufacturing company based in Italy, which is managed by one single family of businessmen now in its fourth generation. Its mill has a Style Centre in Molvena (Vicenza, Italy), whose staff is continuously engaged in researching, and creating new kinds of performances, producing more than 1000 new fabrics every year and the Slow Factory, where blankets, samples and production pieces are manufactured.

Another participant Sinv is an Italian company which specialises in ready-to-wear apparel. It was founded in 1975. It first came to market with its own brand, Daily Blue, developed with Adriano and Rossella Goldschmied, but, after 10 years, its focus changed to the newly-borne licensing business. In 1985 it started collaborating with Krizia for the launch of Krizia Jeans, and since then has partnered with fashion houses such as Moschino, Cavalli, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Chloè, Donna Karan, and Yohji Yamamoto.

The other participants include Miniwiz, which exists to make the circular economy a reality in everyday consumption by turning recycled material into high-performance applications, Benetton Group, one of the best-known fashion companies in the world with a watchful eye to the environment, human dignity and a society in transformation, and Cristiano Seganfreddo, innovator and a creative entrepreneur who has taught aesthetics in fashion design at Politecnico di Milano and has been scientific director of Corriere Innovazione of Corriere della Sera.
