Bringing top executives in the fashion supply chain together to collaborate on supply chain strategy in the face of a rapidly changing consumer landscape
PI Apparel’s Supply Chain Forum helps fashion executives reevaluate their supply chain strategy in light of a tumultuous two years.
With cost inflation, capacity constraint, up-shifting in manufacturing locations and changing demand, this event gives the leading figures in the fashion supply chain the opportunity to stay ahead.
From material and chemical waste to transport and shipping emissions, sustainability is a big challenge for fashion supply chains. Presently, fashion brands are coming under scrutiny for their sustainability efforts. Fashion currently contributes around 10% of greenhouse gas emissions, and brands need to find cost effective ways to tackle this.
Creating an effective and efficient supply chain is crucial for a company's success. Business operations and strategy refers to how brands can optimise their business processes to make their supply chains more resilient, and how to implement new strategies and technologies to overcome challenges.
Digital technologies and AI are enabling fashion brands to revolutionise their supply chain, if they use them correctly and integrate them into their processes efficiently. Retailers could digitise their supply chain in so many ways, but currently are struggling to integrate tech and AI due to issues such as non-user friendly interfaces, and different programmes not working together.

I enjoyed the exhibitors and the seminars/ talks. Usually we have intimate apparel-related events which we attend, however being able to mix with different industries within the fashion field was quite unique.
