The two-day virtual event will feature live educational content which has been designed to help apparel, footwear, retail and manufacturing organisations tackle the challenges they meet in the development and execution of a PLM strategy, implementation and deployment.

“As PLM Industry solutions providers we saw a gap in PLM education offered to the Consumer Products PLM Market” says Nancy Winslow, President and Founder of TBC Unlimited, and also the Conference Committee Education Chair. “PLM came from other industries and although a fast growing strategy for CPG organisations, it is still in an early adoption phase.”

The keynote speakers include Denise Seegal, a global leader who has held CEO level positions with leading retail brands including Ralph Lauren, DKNY, Calvin Klein, Liz Claiborne, VF Corporation, Nautica and Sweetface Fashion Co’s JLO Brand, Chad Jackson, the Vice President and Group Director in the Design to Delivery Practice at Aberdeen Group.

Additional speakers considered experts on PLM architecture, strategy, delivery, process, and design will be included in the conference sessions.

The PLM Bootcamp ’09 is being held on 8th and 9th October where virtual networking and exhibitor booths will be offering white papers, demonstrations and live chat facilities. For more information on this event visit:
