35th Apparel Importers Trade and Transportation Conference
November 8 at 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Hosted by the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) in conjunction with the Jay and Patty Baker School of Business and Technology, the 35th Annual Apparel Importers Trade and Transportation Conference features discussions about the trade, transportation, and compliance challenges for fashion brands and retailers.
The USFIA’s largest annual event brings together professionals from companies across the supply chain for a day full of insights from policy makers and industry experts. The conference will analyze the impact of the mid-term elections, discuss on the outlook for trade policy and customs policy, and share more about solutions to eliminate forced labor while preparing for supply chain disruptions.
The conference is traditionally attended by 150 to 200 professionals ranging from coordinators, managers, directors, and vice presidents to the C-suite. The attendees are decision-makers in areas including sourcing, global trade compliance, quality assurance, supply chain management, logistics, and marketing for small, mid-sized, and large national and global companies.
This event will be held in both the John E. Reeves Great Hall and the Katie Murphy Amphitheatre.
