This event has been cancelled due to Hurricane Irma.
The apparel brand and retail community has been turned upside down — by consumers, by new expectations and demands, by technology moving at warp speed. Join a group of your dynamic peers to take stock of your position, learn about meaningful future shifts and exchange ideas and insights that will drive your business and your career forward in these unprecedented times.
Soak up new ideas, different points of view and forward-looking insights through captivating Keynotes, Success Stories from Apparel’s 2017 Top Innovators, AEF Talks, interactive AEF University Workshops, One-On-One meetings with fellow attendees and more.
The Forum’s theme of "The Promise and the Power of A Connected World" of course is a nod to the connected digital world that dominates our industry landscape, technology and the consumer experience. But it also mirrors the experience you’ll discover at the Forum. The intimate environment — expect to meet 60 to 75 senior-level executives representing apparel retailers, brands and manufacturers, plus a select group of progressive solution and service providers — will allow you to expand and deepen your professional peer-to- peer network.
In short, the Apparel Executive Forum is designed for executives who must balance the critical challenges of the here and now, with the demand of envisioning and planning for a scalable and sustainable profitable future. Content contributors represent well-known mega brands, entrepreneurial-minded innovators and rising stars — all charged with sharing a relevant story that delivers real takeaways. Come be a part of the experience.
