'Made in the UK - Fashioning a Future for British Clothing Manufacturers ' conference review 2012
"Inspirational", "thought provoking" and "eye opening" were just some of the superlatives used by industry and press delegates to describe the recent ASBCI conference held at the Marriott Worsley Park Hotel near Manchester. Sponsored by fashion technology specialist Lectra and Lingerie Buyer magazine, nearly 170 delegates heard how an increasing number of companies really are making it in the UK!
The conference also hosted an expert panel comprising its chairman Alistair Knox, ASBCI Treasurer and conference sponsor Mark Lyness, managing director of Lectra UK, and fellow panelists Eddie Jones from Kufner Textil and Micheal Bentley of NWTexnet.
With such a controversial topic and excellent turn out, many are already anticipating a follow up to the 'Made in the UK' industry conference.
