Day 1 and main event of Fashion Innovation Week

Innovation Meets Fashion 2020

Innovation Meets Fashion, now in its 6th edition, is the brainchild of the Netcomm Suisse Association, which, over the past 6 years has built it into Europe’s largest and most-respected event dedicated to Fashion and Technology and has helped to define the Swiss canton of Ticino as the FashionTech hub of Europe.

 

The main event of Fashion Innovation Week sees expert fashion professionals and brands alongside the likes of big Swiss and international retailers, technology companies, investors and start-ups/scale-ups who gather together to listen to international keynote speakers, be involved in the numerous panel discussions and network with their peers. There is a strong focus on how the market is moving from thinking purely in terms of retail to considering instead new business models based on digital innovation, but with focus on new core themes such as sustainability, predictive analytics, digital craftmasnship, omni-channel integration and many more.

 

The day is well-structured and has a very full agenda, allowing attendees a great number of opportunities to connect with each other and lay the foundations for new business opportunities. After an initial morning session of keynotes and some light refreshments, the agenda is split into four sections, each following a specific area of interest.
