The In­ter­na­tional Ap­parel Fed­er­a­tion (IAF) is the only global fed­er­a­tion of its kind rep­re­sent­ing Ap­parel As­so­ci­a­tions from 60 coun­tries, rep­re­sent­ing over 150,000 com­pa­nies. Modint, the Dutch as­so­ci­a­tion for the fash­ion and tex­tiles in­dus­tries, has about 600 mem­bers who have a cu­mu­la­tive an­nual turnover of about 9 bil­lion Euro.

The IAF Con­ven­tion caters to ap­parel in­dus­try lead­ers from across the sup­ply chain, from all con­ti­nents. This con­ven­tion is a unique op­por­tu­nity to gain the in­sights ne­c­es­sary to un­der­stand where our in­dus­try is head­ing. Top speak­ers from across the globe cover the width of the sup­ply chain, from raw ma­te­ri­als to ap­parel sourc­ing and from pro­duc­tion to re­tail trends. On top of that, the con­ven­tion pro­vides an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to meet the global in­dus­try in one lo­ca­tion in a few days time.


The theme of the 34th edi­tion of our well-es­tab­lished global ap­parel Con­ven­tion is “Build­ing a smart fu­ture for the fash­ion in­dus­try”. In a world where prices can­not drop much lower, boats can­not go much faster and peo­ple can­not work much harder, im­prove­ments are made only when the busi­ness is made smarter. Smart sup­ply chain col­lab­o­ra­tion, smart new ma­chines, smart ma­te­ri­als and above all, smart peo­ple, this con­ven­tion will show many inspiring ex­am­ples of a smarter ap­parel sup­ply chain.


This con­ven­tion is a unique fash­ion in­dus­try event bring­ing the top­ics that mat­ter and the speak­ers that count to­gether with both size­able parts of the Dutch, Ger­man and Bel­gian fash­ion in­dus­try over the world.
