A Scandinavian technology tour is being organised next month to bring the very latest 3D virtual and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) innovations to apparel companies in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Taking place from 17 to 20 November, the tour is being organised by product development experts Gerber Technology and Alvanon, in collaboration with Scandinavian apparel development technology suppliers Amatec and ACG Nyström.
