Event Description

PARTNERSHIPS FOR EUROPEAN INDUSTRY

The European textile and fashion industry invites the other sectors for ‘Industrial Dialogues’ to find new areas of potential cooperation, identify common challenges and ways to tackle them together.

During the half-day event will consist of five ‘Industrial Dialogues’ between the entrepreneurs from different sectors. The event will take place in ‘Stanhope Hotel’ in the European Quarter with the presence of the EU Commissioner for Industry and SMEs Elżbieta Bieńkowska.

Textile and clothing companies are working hand-in-hand with other industries, service providers, consumers and authorities. But the opportunities for making clever and profitable partnerships are not exhausted -  much more can be achieved in unexpected partnerships.

 

WHY WORKING TOGETHER

We count on working with other sectors to get the full benefit from international trade

We wish to take good examples to attract young talents to our sector

We are willing to contribute to the circular economy to produce better in Europe

We believe creativity is key for industry and can only be reached in partnerships

We can find effective solutions to face current societal challenges
