Delaware Invite to fibercast June 2009
The University of Delaware invites you to join the next fibercast on June 5 at 2 p.m. (EDT) for a lively discussion on Global Sourcing in the Apparel Industry with two industry executives with decades of experience managing supply chains for American apparel companies, Mr. Gary Ross of Avon and Ms. Paula Zusi of Ann Taylor. The host of fibercast, Dr. Hye-shin Kim, and her guests will examine:
- How are apparel companies adjusting to the new, post-credit boom economy?
- What trends in global supply chain management are emerging that will (re)shape the movement of apparel, footwear and niche goods both to the U.S. and to other consumer-oriented economies?
- Where are the best places to find unique, affordable and responsibly made products?
- How can other companies and organizations position themselves to prepare for and take advantage of these trends?
During the fibercast, you will be able to e-mail questions to Dr. Kim and the guest speakers.
