ASBCI 2018 SPRING CONFERENCE - "Digital Revolution - Virtually taking over fashion"

There has been much hype about the impact of digital development, management, data generation and consumer engagement technologies on the fashion industry. As busy fashion industry practitioners how can we cut through the hype and identify which digital technologies and strategies would actually give us a competitive edge and make us more profitable?

The ASBCI has invited some of the global apparel industries most successful and innovative professionals to help us navigate our way through the digital landscape and make sense of what is available, what works and how it should and can be implemented and applied to our businesses. They will identify some of the most relevant and effective technologies available and advise us on what changes we need to make to our people, processes, practices and supply chain partners in order to make the most of our digital investment. Regardless of where you are on your digital journey you will be given invaluable insight into how you can plan, prepare and make the most of your digital future.
