HONG KONG /PRNewswire/ -- With just two months to go before the 2015 Cashmere World Forum takes place in Hong Kong, the Organisers have developed a highly stimulating and informative programme for the industry delegates that will attend this year.
The connecting thread running through the whole Forum programme is the concept of lightness -- lightness in every sense as exemplified in the lightness and luxury of cashmere and other fine fibres in contrast to the "weighty" political and economic background we are currently facing.
The Keynote Speaker of the Forum this year will be Mr. Anthony Keung of the Fenix Group. His wide experience will be reflected in his role as Cashmere World Forum's keynote speaker. He will speak about the background of his company, how it evolved from Manufacturing to Retail brands and how it adapted to economic changes by switching from the Japan market to European and US markets and then to China and Korea. He will share his views on the prospects of the China market where he says their retail brands are still growing. He is still optimistic about the China retail market believing that the economic bubble in China is over and that the slowdown of theChina market is a normal phenomenon.
Other topics of interest will cover:
As well as several other topics based around the central theme of "lightness". You can view the ongoing development of the programme and also register as a delegate on www.cashmereworldfair.com.
The Cashmere World Forum is the only informative event focusing specifically on cashmere and fine fibres. It represents and invaluable opportunity for professionals in the supply chain, manufacturing and retail sectors to get up to speed with latest developments and most importantly network with experts from an international background.
Due to overwhelming response, the 10% off early bird offer has been extended until 31 Aug 2015; please reserve your seat today.
