The 37th World Fashion Convention will be hosted by the International Apparel Federation (IAF) on 13-16 November in partnership with its Bangladeshi members, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) and Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BKMEA).

Registration is now open on the joint convention’s website and the event will consist of a full-day conference and a networking dinner on 15 November as well as an industry tour held on 16 November and/or 17 November.

Running under the theme ‘Transforming Fashion Together, the event will focus on supply chain collaboration and aims to highlight the major challenges of the industry can only realistically be met when there is true collaboration between buyers and their suppliers.

The IAF says Bangladesh, as the second largest garment exporting country in the world, is the perfect’ venue to see how garment manufacturers play a pivotal role in a successful industry transformation with solutions to the industry’s current major problems.

Discussions during the conference will focus on practical answers to industry challenges such as digitalisation, sustainability, and more effective business models involving the entire supply chain.
