Beyond 2020: Survival of the Smartest

As Covid-19 continues to cause disruption around the globe, and the threat of a climate crisis looms ever closer, smartification has become the watchword of a new era. This is not just about adopting the latest technologies and accelerating the digitalisation of the whole supply chain, it is also about adopting a new mindset and a reassessment of traditional ways of working.

The businesses that survive and thrive in the post-Covid era will be those that can adapt to the rapidly changing ‘new normal’. But it goes beyond the immediate pandemic response. Smartification requires businesses to adopt more agile ways of working, to be prepared to try new things, quickly, and to invest in the people, skills, and technologies that will deliver long-term business resilience.

Beyond 2020: Survival of the Smartest will bring together experts from across the supply chain to discuss a route to a smarter future for the fashion industry.

So far, speakers for the day include:

Marcella Wartenbergh - CEO, Pepe Jeans

Ton Wiedenhoff - Executive Director, Alvanon

Jenny Holloway - CEO, Fashion Enter

Stuart Greenfield - Sales Director, Advanced Supply Chain Group with guest David Flavell, Head of Inbound Supply Chain at ASOS
