Industry Forum, a three-year industry-led initiative established to deliver a sustainable supply chain improvement programme, is holding its 2nd Annual Conference on 2 July 2002 at Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London.

Entitled Speed, the conference will build on the success of last year's event by demonstrating how the domestic textile and clothing supply chain can be made faster, better and more cost effective to create competitive advantage.

UK and European speakers, including Stuart Rose, chief executive, Arcadia, Jane Hotz, category manager, Marks & Spencer and Karin Vervist, head of buying, KarstadtQuelle, will discuss key issues relating to the supply chain. Presentations also include those from companies that have undertaken Industry Forum projects, providing delegates with a unique opportunity to listen and learn from organisations who have already benefited.

The day's events will be divided into three key sections: New Product Development, The Value of Brands and Supply Chain Management.
