The challenges and opportunities offered by modern technology in apparel product development will be the focus of a new event taking place next month - where speakers from PVH, Deckers Outdoor, VF International, Marc Jacobs, and United Colors of Benetton will share their experiences.

The two-day forum called Product Innovation Apparel, or PI Apparel 2013 for short, is being held in London on 16-17 July.

It will discuss the methods and tools available to harmonise design, development, and the global supply chain through a series of case studies, panel discussions and product showcases.

The following sessions are planned:

  • How essential is technology in supporting the paradigm shift in apparel industry operations and supply chain?
  • Utilising technology platforms to maximise collaboration and boost efficient operations.
  • Utilising a collaboration system programme in supporting fast fashion channels.
  • Enabling new designer integration and fast fashion launch with cloud and related technologies
  • Creating the omni-channel retail experience
  • How can sustainability drive innovation in product design and overall supply chain?
  • Matching business needs and maturity to the most relevant technology platform.
