"Stalling, Crawling, or Snowballing Profits: Why Apparel Magazine 2008 All-Star Winner KlimUSA Partnered with Centric"

Wednesday, November 11, 2009, 1 P.M. EST

Ray Hein, executive vice president of marketing, Centric Software

Main Auditorium
Apparel Magazine's Tech Conference 2009
Hosted by Fashion Institute of Technology
7th Avenue @ 27th Street
New York, New York 10001

Like the larger economic environment, companies in the fashion and apparel industries stand at a crossroads. These companies face 3 options:

• Stall. With dwindling market share and profits, the survival of companies in this category is questionable.
• Crawl. For some firms, cost-cutting initiatives has bought some time. These companies will remain hunkered down, waiting for a recovery to materialize.
• Snowball. A select few companies have identified technology investment as a means to not only survive, but gain momentum and grow--like a snowball that rolls down hill. These firms are thriving in the current climate.

Why have some chosen one path, while others have opted for another?
Content: Leaders in the field of fashion and footwear have argued that by leveraging strategic investment in technology, fashion and other fast moving consumer goods companies can improve innovation and profitability, thereby positioning themselves for the future while gaining market share during the downturn. This presentation will examine the evidence, and profile the business practices of 2008 Apparel All-Star Winner KlimUSA as a case in point.
