ASBCI is delighted to announce that Richard Barnes, CEO and Founder of Select Research will be speaking at the Autumn Size & Fit Conference in Leeds on 11th October 2016.

Richard graduated in Law in 1982, but pursued a career in marketing research, working at agencies for twelve years before he became a Director at Research International and TNS, now Kantar; one of the world’s largest research agencies. In 1995, Richard set up Select Research as a specialist company for management of large research projects.

Richard is one of the pioneers of 3D scanning in retail fit. In 1997 Select were commissioned by Next to undertake a large womenswear survey using 3D scanners which led to sizing surveys for M&S, on women, men, children and lingerie.

BMI can be done anywhere, so the 3D scanning system of BVI also had to be mobile. The BVI technology, developed and launched, is now being used to develop other mobile scanning applications including the Lycra Fit F!nder, to be presented at the ASBCI conference.
