Session Details:

"Current State of the Industry: The Perfect Storm”
Ed Gribbin, President, Alvanon

How will retailers and brands today respond to the rapidly increasing pressures and challenges presented by customers, competitors and suppliers? (And, how should they?)

“Industry Expectations & Direction: PDM versus PLM - Why either or neither?”
Michael Lock, Principal PLM Consultant, Gerber Technology

An industry which is constantly evolving at a pace never seen before; increased commercial and regulatory pressures; the changing needs of consumers; the increasing need for innovation and newness and the reality of global economics: these are just some of the factors and challenges facing the apparel and footwear industry. How is the industry addressing these challenges and what are the solutions affecting future direction? Also, the expectation being placed on solution providers is greater than ever and now with increasing pressure from newer technologies what is the future for technology solutions in the industry?

“Product, Process, People? What's more important?”
Ed Gribbin, President, Alvanon

A legendary US retailer has said ‘success at retail is based on three things: product, product, and product’. Is he right? Or is that thinking outdated in today’s consumer-empowered market? We will explore how some very successful brands find the right balance, delighting consumers and investors at the same time.

"Coming to You - The Internet of Things: Technology in our Industry and the IoT connectivity more required than ever”
Michael Lock, Principal PLM Consultant, Gerber Technology

The unstoppable Internet of Things (IoT) is here with us, in our lives today. Technology providers are routinely embedding their hardware with electronics and software along with connection points which enables these objects or 'things', to collect and exchange data. What does the IoT actually mean and what does it offer our industry? Will more integration between varying technology solutions and hardware platforms offer real benefit. In this session we firstly try to understand this very latest technology innovation. Secondly we will learn how solution providers are creating more opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer based systems.

"Local Partner, The Local Solution"
Robert Olsson, Head of CAD/CAM/PLM Division, ACG Nyström AB
Margit Karin Aarset, Sales and Application Engineer, Amatec
