About this Event

The apparel industry has been inching toward a total supply chain overhaul for years, with varying degrees of success. But with the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 pushing uncertainty to a new level, it’s time for the market to leap forward with operations tailor-made to address the new normal.

If this massive disruption has illustrated one thing, it’s that long lead, bulk production creates vulnerabilities that are almost impossible to protect when the unexpected occurs. Already the traditional manufacturing model has cost billions, as consumers retreat and nations react to the virus.

Join Sourcing Journal on April 29 at 11 am ET for a look back at lessons learned from industries that have rebuilt after disastrous circumstances and a look ahead at the tools and tactics that will help build a more risk-averse industry.

 This 45-minute webinar will address:

  • How supply chain relationships must evolve
  • The benefits of true process innovation
  • The promise of small-batch, on-demand manufacturing
  • How brands and retailers can start to battle back right now


Speakers will include:

  • Frederic Gaillard, Vice President Product Marketing-Manufacturing, Lectra
  • Stanley Szeto, Executive Chairman of Lever Style
  • John Thorbeck, Chairman of Chainge Capital
  • Edward Hertzman, President of Sourcing Journal
