well as McKinsey, BCG, the ILO, the World Bank and the OECD. This year, we already have
confirmation of speakers from Puma, Hugo Boss, the London College of Fashion and LeverStyle, with
many top speakers to be announced.
IAF Conventionsreceive on average 300 delegates, usually coming from over 20 countries around the
world. This 34 th edition will carry the theme: ‘Building a Smart Future for Fashion’. In a world where
prices cannot drop much lower, boats cannot go much faster and people cannot work much harder,
improvements are made only when the business is made smarter.
The Convention will be hosted in Maastricht’s Crowne Plaza Hotel. Maastricht is a unique city in the
Netherlands and a very suitable backdrop for the IAF’s World Fashion Convention. It is located almost
right on both the German and the Belgian borders (as well as on the French language border). The
result is the Netherlands’ most European city; a beautiful and pleasant town with a high end,
innovative (fashion) retail environment in which both large international fashion retail chains, but
also many smaller boutiques thrive.
