“The feedback we’ve received from attendees and exhibitors over the last few editions showed us that there was a need for more in-depth information on sustainability, social media and emerging businesses,” said Tricia Carey, Director of Global Business Development Apparel, Lenzing Fibers. “We took this opportunity to curate an informational platform on these topics with consecutive seminars under the boot camp theme for more effective learning.
