It will take place for the third edition after two previous programs held in 2018 and 2019. It will continue analyzing how the fashion business landscape is evolving, as change is the primary engine that pushes ahead this market and makes it react, while its players are facing new challenges and looking for new opportunities.
New technology, new audiences and new channels will be the key topics of discussions for the 2022 program as a source of inspiration and provocation for insiders, entrepreneurs and brands.
Along with a high-density program of speakers and round tables, the event will also leave space for reconnecting and networking with insiders, discovering how each one’s initiative can be rethought or rebooted.
