Alvanon’s Ed Gribbin to address at SPESA forum

October 18, 2016 - United States Of America

Alvanon, a global apparel business and product development consultancy, has announced that the company’ president and fashion business authority, Ed Gribbin, will address attendees at the SPESA Advancements in Manufacturing Technologies Conference 2016 and act as moderator at the SPESA Executive Conference, to be held from November 3 to 5, 2016, in US.

Gribbin’s presentation, titled “Why Speed To Market Matters... And What You Can Do To Get Faster,” will take a discerning look at how retailers, brands and designers can earn sustainable customer engagement by cutting the time of design to finished product in half.

Ed Gribbin will moderate a series of presentations covering current issues and trends including domestic and regional manufacturing at the three-day SPESA Executive Conference. His talk will explore needs for disruptive thinking, innovation and the willingness to take risk as part of the solution.

“The fashion industry is under intense competitive pressure both from within and from online disruptors, such as Amazon. Manufacturers and suppliers alike have an incredible opportunity to be an integral part of the solution, and grow their businesses in the process, by embracing and facilitating speed to market strategies. Attendees will hear inspirational and business-building stories, and be kept up to date on increasingly significant industry issues, such as reshoring,” Gribbin said. (GK)
