What are your expectations for the forum?

I would like to wake up the day after the forum with new ideas in mind. I hope I can get inspired and challenged by the speakers and other experts attending the forum.

What does “fit for the future” mean to you?

We are living in an extremely fast-changing environment, so we all need to make efforts and exchange ideas in order to shape the future fashion industry. Digitalisation makes this necessary and possible because it also offers a lot of opportunities for all players in the fashion business.

What do you think some of the hot topics will be on the day?

I think that with so many experts from different areas of the industry at the fashion forum, topics such as the future of a connected online and offline world, new technology for fashion manufacturing such as 3D printing and sewbots, the relevance of artificial intelligence and big data, as well as a changing shopping behaviour, especially from millennials would be hot topics.
