NGC Focuses on Innovation at Apparel West 2015

The theme of tomorrow’s Apparel West 2015 conference is innovation – and it’s a fitting theme for West Coast fashion companies that are doing so much to bring innovation to our industry every day.

NGC has been part of Apparel’s Tech Conferences since the beginning. While this year’s edition has a new name and format, it promises to have an even sharper focus on how technology can drive apparel innovation. The theme is “Innovation and Solutions to Innovate Your Business,” and NGC is proud to be a sponsor of tomorrow’s conference.

Our own Mark Goldberg, Director of NGC’s Western Region, will lead a session on “How to Manage the Fast Fashion Lifecycle.” Mark will discuss how NGC's web-based PLM/SCM Solution for Fast Fashion allows manufacturers to ship products to customers in less than 6 weeks.  

Mark’s fast-paced presentation will demonstrate how:

  • With one click, a concept becomes a style.
  • Alerts, Milestones and To-Do Lists can eliminate unnecessary and time-consuming emails by presenting the urgent activities to the responsible team automatically.
  • Everything from Raw Material Management, Specifications and Costing to Approvals can be done concurrently and without any manual intervention or delay.
  • PO’s can be released to suppliers, acknowledged and tracked through to delivery, minimizing risk of unknown production delays and problems.

Tomorrow’s Apparel West Conference is free to qualified retailers and brands, and if you haven’t yet registered, there’s still time. Check out the conference details and agenda here. We hope to see you tomorrow!

“We Wear Global Growth:” Time for the AAFA 2015 Executive Summit


It’s almost time for one of NGC’s favorite events of the year. In just under a week, the American Apparel and Footwear Association (AAFA) kicks off its Annual Executive Summit, and for NGC, it’s always a “can’t miss” event.

Our own Mark Burstein and Fred Isenberg are attending this year’s Summit, held March 18-19 at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C. For NGC, it’s always an incredible combination of thought leadership and frank discussion from the best and brightest leaders in the fashion and retail industries, as well as high-ranking government officials, trade representatives and financial and industry analysts.

The Annual Executive Summit is an unparalleled educational event, and this year’s theme, “We Wear Global Growth,” speaks to many of the key issues facing our industry. It’s the perfect opportunity to check your business strategy and make sure you are aware of all the latest trends that will impact your company. And it’s also hands-down one of the very best networking opportunities of the year.

As the AAFA says, “The Annual Executive Summit is unlike any other forum for serious and competitive industry leaders. At the crossroads of public policy and fashion, the Summit brings together mavericks from our industry and leaders from Washington to discuss the real issues that impact your bottom line.”

We agree completely. And that’s why NGC’s top executive leadership will be there. We hope to see you there, too!
