“Attendees to the panel discussion can ask virtually any question pertaining to the sometimes intricate task of knowing how to start, manage or improve 3D technology programs in the fashion industry,“ Gribbin says. “Our team of 3D experts covers virtually every aspect of the technology as it pertains to fashion design, training, accelerating speed to market, enhancing digital omni-channel marketing and integrating 3D and PLM systems.
