Technology firm CLO Virtual Fashion is to hold its first global, digital-only user summit next week, which will include a series of workshops to help attendees learn and transform the way they work and engage in the apparel industry.

Prior to the pandemic, CLO Virtual Fashion hosted yearly on-site user summit events at each of its international locations. These gatherings gave clients and users the opportunity to connect with each other, gain inspiration from CLO success stories, and find out about the latest updates and integrations. Due to the current times, gathering in-person has been difficult, thus a new framework had to be implemented in order to allow these events to continue during the current situation.

With this year's global summit, CLO Virtual Fashion gives users across the globe the ability to register and tune in to a two-day event, with sessions hosted from three different continents, accessible from all time zones. 

The event, which will run from 23-24 February, will include user stories from international brands and manufacturers including Zamira Fashion Limited, Aditya Birla Fashion Retail Limited, Mango, Hugo Boss, and a presentation from CEO Simon Kim which will provide an introduction to the future of CLO-SET, CLO'S all-in-one data analytics tool, communication platform, Product Development Collaboration system, digital asset management system, virtual asset marketplace and portfolio management tool. 

The following day gives way to pushing the boundaries of what is possible with CLO, including a user story from Asmara International, an introduction to CLO-Vise, which bridges the gap between PLM solutions and CLO, and presentations introducing new CLO integrations from Substance by Adobe and Jeanologia. Representatives of Cotton Inc and SwatchOn will be present, providing users all there is to know about working with digital fabrics in CLO and about the future of fabrics.

There will also be a presentation from Parsons School of Design on the importance of 3D technologies before entering the workforce, and users can take part in CLO Design workshops on various topics that span avatar editing, lighting techniques, and denim.
