The Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) is teaming up with Innovation Forum (IF) in a new media collaboration announced this month.
As part of the collaboration, the SAC will join IF on their two flagship Sustainable Apparel and Textiles Conferences, happening in spring 2024. IF looked to collaborate with the SAC, given the nonprofit’s strong representation in apparel and textiles – representing over half of the industry. The organizations will collaborate on session programming, speakers, event marketing, and more.
The first conference takes place in Amsterdam on April 23 to 24, followed by New York City on June 25 to 26. The Amsterdam conference promises over 350 attendees across the apparel industry. The forum will cover how brands can align on incoming legislation, deliver on ambitious climate goals, transform supply chains, scale circularity, engage consumers, and drive positive social impacts, per IF. Meanwhile, the New York event aims to convene over 200 stakeholders addressing apparel’s biggest sustainability challenges and opportunities ahead.
On the news, Lee Green, senior director of communications, at the SAC, said: “After having SAC members attend and speak in the past at Innovation Forum events, it felt like a great opportunity to deepen our involvement. We look forward to collaborating with them as we look to raise awareness about key challenges impacting the industry and, of course, discussing solutions that involve all players along the value chain.”
Drawing on the high-level discretion of the subject matter and attendees, both forums are held under Chatham House rule, meaning speakers can not be directly attributed but information can be used freely.
More information on the collaboration will be available soon.
