Blog: Prime Source Forum beckons
Joe Ayling | 26 March 2010
It hardly feels like ten minutes since just-style was last invited to join top apparel executives in Hong Kong for the annual Prime Source Forum, but it has been a full year.
The forum begins on Monday (30 March) with workshop discussions between the experts involved this year.
The following two days' debate - involving 65 speakers and panellists - promises much, with topics for discussions including sustainability, technology, trade policies and demand for apparel.
Who knows, there may even be the odd cocktail party and luncheon thrown in for good measure?
just-style will be excited to hear the latest developments in manufacturing, sourcing and design, and will be reporting on every word spoken next week.
Prime Source Forum is generally accepted as the definitive meeting place for the global apparel industry, and Hong Kong's position as fashion's sourcing hub make it the perfect venue.
just-style news editor Joe Ayling will be reporting from the event all week, and is keen to meet up with people in the industry to chat over a coffee, cocktail or basket of dim sum.
