Save the date: Decoded Fashion has announced details for its next London Summit. Hitting the capital on May 20-21st, Future Proofing will take place at London’s new hub for creative and technological innovation: Kings Cross, and more specifically, Kings Place. If you want to discover the technologies disrupting the world of fashion today, or amplify your retail strategy to its fullest potential in 2015, it’s time to grab a ticket.
Previous attendees have run the gamut of the world of fashion and tech, and this year is set to be no different: Topshop, AllSaints, Matches, Topshop and Harvey Nichols have all reaped the benefits of successful digital strategy in 2015, and representatives from all of them will be sharing their tips at Future Proofing. Panel Discussions are central to what Decoded Fashion do, and this year’s talks will push the boundaries of what’s possible in the industry. On day 1, catch Digital Director Kate Walmsley (Topshop) and Chief Technology Officer James Wintle (AllSaints) discussing the now and – more importantly – the next of new tech developments that can contribute to a future-proof fashion strategy. How to address consumer’s real needs will be a running theme of the summit, including a panel discussion that addresses the issue of ‘tech for tech’s sake’: Venture Partner Richard Chen (Ceyuan Ventures) and Multi-Channel Director Sandrine Deveaux (Harvey Nichols) will be dishing some key take-aways on implementing technology that covers both consumer’s interests and delivers ROI.
This provides just a taster of what’s to come at Future Proofing 2015: with panel discussions, debates, talks, networking opportunities and our Decoded Fashion Competition to boot (more on that to come), the summit will provide equally valuable perspectives from those on the start-up scene and more established industry names.
