Hong Kong-based sourcing executives of international brands and retailers will have the opportunity to attend the SAFSA Seminar Hong Kong. Attendees will learn about some of the advantages of sourcing in Southeast Asia and how the Source ASEAN Full Service Alliance (SAFSA) model serves as an excellent mechanism to develop that sourcing potential.
The global garment industry is changing drastically and quickly for apparel buyers. In the past, a factory that shipped a decent product, on time, and at a reasonable price had a competitive advantage. Now apparel buyers demand speed-to-market—short production times from designer sketch to warehouse delivery—with a full suite of value-added services bundled into the price. Full-service and speed-to-market are a powerful cost-saving combination that can rarely be obtained in a single source market with an individual factory.
Through SAFSA, Southeast Asia’s important garment factories are now forming virtual vertical factories (VVFs) with upstream suppliers of materials and other services in order to give buyers the fast, full-service, competitive advantages they seek.
Come along to the free seminar to find out how your business can benefit from working with SAFSA VVFs. Held concurrently with meetings of the AFTEX Council and the VVF Selection Committee, the event also represents an opportunity to meet some of the leaders of Southeast Asia’s textile & apparel industry.
