The IAF together with the Clothing Manufacturers Association of India is hosting the 32nd IAF World Fashion Convention in Mumbai (India) on September 27-28, 2016. The theme for this Convention is ‘Insights into New Opportunities’.
The Mumbai Convention will cover a broad range of global strategic issues such as Sourcing, Retailing, Technology, Denim and Branding. Speakers that are confirmed include denim guru Adriano Goldschmied and representatives of such world renowned apparel companies as VF, Bestseller, Tommy Hilfiger, Arvind, TAL and G-Star, associations from Bangladesh and Africa, and global apparel industry specialists as WGSN, Alvanon and the Cotton Council.
The Mumbai Convention combines a global outlook with a closer look at the host country, India. Clearly India’s fast growing markets offers many opportunities but good insights are required to capitalise on them.
Traditionally, IAF Conventions are more than just a conference. Excellent social activities provide good opportunities for networking within the global apparel industry net work. This year, delegates will be treated to a Golf Tournament, a welcome reception, a gala dinner and a Mumbai retail tour. The experience can be extended with an extra study and leisure tour to Goa. An early bird rate giving a € 100 discount will be valid until June 23rd. IAF members registering now pay €295 and non members pay € 595 (excluding study and leisure tour). All international delegates can now register through the dedicated Convention website,
