Knowledge Sharing Sessions @ Apparel Sourcing Week 2022

With barely a month to go, Apparel Sourcing Week 2022 is gearing up to bring together 100+ prominent garment and textile manufacturers from India, Bangladesh, Mauritius and Indonesia closer to the Indian and global apparel retail market. That’s EXPO part of the much sought-after show!

Equally enticing activity at the event will be the Panel Discussions/Knowledge Sharing platforms that will entail seven industry-focused seminars and many ideative sessions as well as bridging talks spread over two days, with carefully curated panel of the apparel industry experts.

The discussions will ensue topics which have wide ranging, far reaching implications with intervention of technology in buying and sourcing, sustainability, future of fashion retail and the newer business models within fashion space.

We’re sure these topics will excite every stakeholder and rightly so as the fashion industry today requires a much-needed changeover, all because global fashion consumers now demand more convenience and expediency. The rise of social media, a preferred place to be for young fashion shoppers, has a major implication for fashion industry around the world and hence the fashion players globally need to focus on optimising the consumer shopping experience both online and offline, make best use of the new social media channels, get digital ready and make sustainability their top priority.

Adding to this is the supply chain disruption that’s forcing the brands and retailers to be more agile and offer products with short lead times and improved reliability!

Therefore, the seven handpicked seminars at Apparel Sourcing Week 2022 will extensively talk about Reimagining Sourcing in Fashion Industry; the Use of AI for Fashion Innovation; Redefining Physical Retail; Upcycling-The New Frontier for Sustainability; and D2C Opportunities for Fashion. The two-day event will also host a seminar on increasing synergies in apparel and textile trade between India and Bangladesh.

The discussions, led by a stellar panel of industry experts from renowned brands and factories, would be enriching for all the participants. Reputed industry stalwarts such as Anindya Ray (Arvind Brands); Neetu Jotwani (Myntra); Arjun Puri (KAS Asia); Senthil Rangasamy (Page Industries); Rajani Arora (s.Oliver); Ram Agarwal (V Mart); Suparna Malhotra (New Times); Kirti Poonia (Relove); Vinay Chatlani (Soch Brand); and Alpana Razdan (Falla Bella) will be gracing the seminars with vast experience in their subject matter.
