NGC is proud to sponsor this year’s American Apparel & Footwear Association’s Annual Executive Summit March 5-7, 2014 at The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City in Arlington, VA. The summit has a long-standing tradition of bringing together apparel’s top leaders and thinkers to discuss issues impacting the bottom line in the apparel and footwear industries.
Issues discussed at the annual summit historically revolve around hot industry topics and current events, and this year is no different! Themes to be highlighted throughout the event include security and safety in business, the political and economic dynamics at play in the international market, and how to leverage innovation and partnerships for global growth.
This year’s featured speakers complete a prestigious line-up of knowledgeable and experienced industry leaders. Notable names to join the roster of speakers are Robert S. Mueller, FBI Director and Chris Matthews of MSNBC’s Hardball. Jon Huntsman, Jr., co-chair of the IP Commission and former governor of Utah and U.S. Ambassador, and Diane von Furtstenburg, founder of DVF Studio, LLC and president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, will also be speaking at the 2014 AAFA Annual Executive Summit.
Our own Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D, holds the summit in high regard, noting, “The AAFA Annual Executive Summit brings together top leaders in the fashion industry for thought-provoking discussions, networking and information that you simply can't get anywhere else. It's a ‘must’ for any company that is seeking the best strategies to compete — and win — in the global marketplace.”
