Since the launch in 2015, twice a year visionaries have met at the conference to discuss the latest developments at the interface of fashion and technology, following all news and developments about digital transformation.
However, digitalisation disruption not only affects the fashion industry but the whole lifestyle industry – with immense impact on all elements of the value chain: production, buying, paying, distribution and presentation in retail. It is exactly this fact that makes it all the more important to think and act in an interdisciplinary manner in order to stay competitive in today’s market environment.
The #FASHIONTECH BERLIN conference is the place where players from the relevant areas meet, not only to learn about the latest developments and exchange valuable knowledge, but also to jointly develop future-oriented digital solutions, generate new business leads and foster networks.
The conference was opened by Anita Tillmann, founder and CEO of the Premium Group and organiser of #FASHIONTECH BERLIN; Michael Stracke, Chief Business Development Officer and moderator; and initiator Ole Tillmann, who also led through the day. The auditorium at Kraftwerk was filled to capacity throughout the day.
Top-notch speakers such as Karl Wehner (Alibaba Group), Tarek Müller (About You), Michael Kliger (Mytheresa.com), Whitney Bromberg Hawkings (Flowerbx) with Inga Griese (Icon & Iconist), as well as Leyla Piedayesh (Lala Berlin) with Anita Tillmann (Premium Group), and Florian Heinemann (Project A Ventures), Martin Wild (MediaMarktSaturn Retail Group) and Lukas Gant (Alphatauri by Red Bull) held keynote presentations before the audience.
