The Event for Product Development and Supply Chain Leaders
PI Apparel brings together the leading minds from fashion, apparel and footwear to discuss the challenges and technologies disrupting the industry.
Join us in New York as we explore the strategies and technologies employed by some of the most progressive companies Worldwide.
Whilst before, adopting digital product creation (DPC) capabilities may have been optional, COVID has forced brands and retailers to adapt and many find themselves in the first phase of creating a solid digital foundation. In this stream we will cover the crucial people, process and technology challenges you must consider and overcome when embarking on a 3D journey.
It is imperative to scale from design through to broader applications across the value chain. In this stream we will explore the most pressing hurdles, including external buy-in; in-house education; systems interoperability; advancements in digital materials; and how best to manage your digital assets as you move from design-only to consumer-facing applications.
Creating a truly holistic, end-to-end digital supply chain was the Holy Grail for many long before COVID hit. But in light of the pandemic disruption, this stream will examine the weaknesses in traditional supply chains and how a cohesive digital roadmap can ensure we are prepared for anything as we move forward with a truly global, dynamic and resilient operation.
With so much excitement happening around 3D and more back-end processes, it can be easy to overlook the advancements being made in broader supply chain tools and capabilities. In this stream, we will examine exactly what these developments are, and how tools such as AI, blockchain, RFID, robotics and more promise to help shape the supply chain of the future.
In 2021, we’re excited to be returning PI Apparel New York & Supply Chain Forum to The Metropolitan Pavilion, in the center of Manhattan’s upbeat Chelsea neighborhood.
The size of this modern, open venue means the event will have plenty of space to move around and adeqaute opportunity to interact with the talks and other attendees.VIEW VENUE DETAILS
