7th DTB / MODINT Sourcing Convention·Düsseldorf
Wed, Mar 06, 2013
9 AM - 4 PM
Tradegood was invited to the 7th DTB Sourcing Convention by the “Dialog Textil-Bekleidung (DTB)” textile association in order to participate and introduce itself. DTB organized this event together with the Dutch textile association MODINT and the “International Apparel Federation (IAF)”.
This time, the focus of the event was on the clothing and textile market of Turkey. Muharrem Kayhan of Söktaş gave insights into the Turkish textile market and answered key questions at the subsequent panel discussion. Robin Anson, editor of Textile Intelligence Outlook (formerly The Economist), was also present and shared his views on the general economic trends in the global garment industry. Another major theme of this event was Corporate Social Responsibility. Dedicated working groups of the DTB and MODINT gave an overview and discussed current developments in this regard.
Tradegood also gave a talk. Jan Gutknecht, Business Development Manager of Tradegood EMEA, presented Tradegood and told the attendees what opportunities and benefits they could enjoy through membership of Tradegood. Jan also outlined the function of the Tradegood online database. The audience was very interested and asked a lot of technical questions. The response to the presentation was very good and many of the visitors came to our booth afterwards to get further details on Tradegood.
