CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

15TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON APPAREL & HOME TEXTILES
 7TH SEPTEMBER 2019
AT INDIA HABITAT CENTRE, NEW DELHI

Theme: To be announced

Minuscule as India's garment export sector is in relation to its potential, it employs 17 million people. India is in a virtuous phase of its demographic transition and the most important priority of the government and the industry is to find ways to provide employment to the 10 million young people entering the workforce annually.

Most customers believed that after China, India would be the greatest beneficiary of the free market. Professionals at that time recognized that India’s industry was not as well developed as its competitors, but customers assumed that given an opportunity, India’s garment-export industry would improve. In 2005, virtually all the major customers rushed to India, opening possibilities but optimistic assumptions proved to be wrong. In fact the opposite occurred. India’s competitors developed further while little change occurred in India.

For creating more jobs in the traditional way the manufacturing sector has to improve the competitiveness of the textile sector in general and apparel sector in particular needs to be improved and we need to act fast.

India is a virtuous phase of its demographic transition and the most important priority of the government and the industry is to find ways to provide employment to the 12 million young people entering the workforce annually.

Come together have a creative coalition where industry and government. Industry and government working together can alleviate many of the problems facing the industry.

The global apparel manufacturing industry which is around US $ 750 Billion today is expected to grow more than ever in times to come. According to an estimate, the global apparel industry will reach a value of US $ 1.5 Trillian by 2025. The Indian Apparel Industry share is US $ 17 Billion of exports. Simultaneously India has a huge domestic market which presently is about US$ 80 billion.

The Apparel Manufacturers are now adopting new techniques to increase their trade. New business models and competitive strategies are used to enhance profits and growth.

The conference is intended to cover all aspects of the apparel industry, including the problems of small-scale enterprises in the developing world, the barriers which are hindering the growth of this industry, the strength and weakness of the manufacturers in different region, globalization issues, resource and manpower scarcity, quality of the product, trade laws, adopting new techniques to improve productivity, managing global supply chain and finally changing apparel industry trends with ever-changing fashions.

A cross-disciplinary event, the idea is to explore creativity and the creative process through the lenses of imagination and innovation.

The conference aims to provide an environment for academics, researchers and practitioners and policy makers to exchange ideas. The conference is also expected to foster networking, collaboration and joint effort among the conference participants to advance the theory and practice as well as to identify major trends in apparel manufacturing.

The Convention will be a great opportunity for international trade fraternity to know the dual strengths that India can offer, not only as a great supplier base, but also as a fashion destination for international brand.
