Cashmere World Forum 2015 announces international speakers line-up

The Cashmere World Forum is the leading informative event focusing specifically on cashmere and fine fibres, according to organisers.The Cashmere World Forum that is set to take place on 7 October 2015 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre has announced the international line-up of speakers for the event that will be held on the first day of the Cashmere World Trade Fair that runs from 7-9 October.

Organisers have developed a programme that is highly stimulating and informative for the industry delegates that will attend this year. The connecting thread running through the whole Forum programme is the concept of lightness –as exemplified in the lightness and luxury of cashmere and other fine fibres.

Lightness

The keynote address will be presented by Anthony Keung, President and CEO, Fenix Group Holdings, Hong Kong, with a title In praise of lightness.

Organisers chose this theme because while the current global economic and political situation is weighty, at the same time people are craving for lightness. “We want to be slim; we listen to music and watch movies on devices that fit our wrist; we play electronic games and have dates with virtual friends, we buy online,” organisers say.

Microelectronics, microrobotics, nanotechnologies are embedded in our daily lives and increasingly in the clothes people wear, and the way they buy them. Cashmere and other fine fibres are not immune to the trend. The presentation will explore the boundless opportunities there are for brands to leverage on lightness.
