China Fashion & Retail Forum narrow

The TFIA are excited to be part of this amazing industry event being held in Sydney next month and would like to invite you to join us!

The Australia China Business Council (ACBC) and the Australia China Fashion Alliance (ACFA) are hosting the China Fashion & Retail Forum in Sydney on Wednesday 10th February 2016 at the Museum of Applied Arts and Science (Powerhouse).

The full day Forum will be the first major event in Australia dedicated to helping the Australian Fashion and Retail industry access the China market. The event is expected to attract more than 250 attendees, including Australian fashion labels, high end producers and retailers looking to export and to capture the growing Chinese tourist market. The day is an unparalleled opportunity for corporate partners to align with global and domestic brand names.

TFIA's own Dave Giles-Kaye will be one of several key Industry speakers at the event! Hear case studies and panel discussions from industry leaders and brands that have already taken their products into this fast developing market and have had success in engaging the Chinese market here in Australia. Special guest, Editor of Vogue China, Angelica Cheung will deliver a keynote address and give an overview of the world’s biggest luxury market and where it is headed.
