Two fashion and retail industry seminars are taking place in Europe next month to address major topics such as speed to market and sustainability, the impact of the coronavirus, and broader supply chain challenges.

Hosted by PTC, First Insight and Kalypso, the first seminar will be held in Stockholm, Sweden on 4 March, and the second seminar will be held in London on 17 March.

The events are being organised in response to requests from brands and retailers, and will provide attendees with insight into some of the innovations and solutions helping companies digitally transform in order to improve speed to market and get on-trend products to market, on-time and on-cost.

The seminars will also discuss other critical industry issues such as sustainability and how the industry is advancing towards a greener future. And speakers will address the impact of the Coronavirus; its disruption of global supply chains and how digital tools can help supply chain leaders mitigate future risks.

"We're looking forward to meeting with business leaders and executives from across Europe that are working to digitally transform their product design, development and supply chain processes," says Bill Brewster, senior vice president and general manager of PTC's Retail Business Unit.

"In today's ever-evolving retail industry, leveraging technology and implementing predictive analytics is critical to success," notes Greg Petro, CEO of First Insight and Forbes Contributor. 

While Sergio Martinez, partner at Kalypso, adds: "Attendees will learn how to use digital technologies like PLM, 3D and Voice of the Customer to accelerate their design and development processes, become more agile, connect their supply chain operations, and make better, data-driven sourcing decisions."
