The world's leading event on sustainability in fashion, Copenhagen Fashion Summit, will celebrate its 10 year anniversary in the next edition to be held during May 15-16, 2019, marking a decade since the event put sustainability on the fashion map. The summit has been rewriting fashion for 10 years, continuing to move the industry from words to action.

"When we held the first summit 10 years ago, few industry leaders recognised the importance of changing the way our industry produces, markets and consumes fashion. Fortunately, its significance is widely recognised today, and sustainability has finally found its way onto the agendas of CEOs. Not only this, more and more companies are beginning to integrate it into their business models. While it is truly amazing to see how much has changed for the better in the past decade, it is equally frustrating to observe the ever-growing pace of the challenges, so I'm counting on the next 10 years to actually transform fashion's future," Eva Kruse, founder and CEO of Global Fashion Agenda, the organisation behind Copenhagen Fashion Summit, said.

The 10th anniversary of Copenhagen Fashion Summit will take place at Copenhagen Concert Hall under the patronage of HRH The Crown Princess of Denmark. The two-day multi-stakeholder event will present an outstanding line-up of high-level keynote speakers on its main stage, their names to be released in the coming months. Also, shaping the 2019 summit will be the release of the 2019 Pulse of the Fashion Industry report, closed-door leadership roundtables, the 2020 Circular Fashion System Commitment signatory event, the Youth Fashion Summit, networking sessions, panel debates and topical deep-dive breakout sessions.

Building on last year's success, Innovation Forum, a sustainable solutions platform, will be back again and feature a curated selection of the world's most promising solution providers, giving summit guests the opportunity to meet with 50 exhibitors covering the entire supply chain. (RR)
