The IAF and Modint are proud to announce that the registration for the IAF’s 34th World Fashion Convention to be held October 8th-10th in Maastricht, the Netherlands is open. You can now find all information you need and also register for the event, the partner program and the study tour through the dedicated event website www.iafconventionmaastricht.com.
Traditionally, the quality of the conference program is high, featuring a mix of c-level speakers from brands, retailers, manufacturers, associations and top class suppliers to the industry. Previous speakers came from a.o. PVH, H&M, Hugo Boss, Desigual, Disney, VF, Zegna, Esquel and Escada, as well as McKinsey, BCG, the ILO, the World Bank and the OECD. This year, we already have confirmation of speakers from Puma, Hugo Boss, the London College of Fashion and LeverStyle, with many top speakers to be announced.
IAF Conventions receive on average 300 delegates, usually coming from over 20 countries around the world. This 34th edition will carry the theme: ‘Building a Smart Future for Fashion’. In a world where prices cannot drop much lower, boats cannot go much faster and people cannot work much harder, improvements are made only when the business is made smarter.
The Convention will be hosted in Maastricht’s Crowne Plaza Hotel. Maastricht is a unique city in the Netherlands and a very suitable backdrop for the IAF’s World Fashion Convention. It is ocated almost right on both the German and the Belgian borders (as well as on the French language border). The result is the Netherlands’ most European city; a beautiful and pleasant town with a high end, innovative (fashion) retail environment in which both large international fashion retail chains, but also many smaller boutiques thrive.

For non-members, the early bird rate is € 795. After June 30th rates will rise with € 200. Be in time and book your tickets now on www.iafconventionmaastricht.com !
