Copenhagen Fashion Summit to unveil new format

The leading business event on sustainability in fashion, Copenhagen Fashion Summit, will see its sixth edition during May 15-16, 2018. The multi-stakeholder event is all set to unveil a new, revamped format, expanding to a two-day format to allow participants more time to gain knowledge, share experiences and discover innovative solutions.


The summit has one new feature - the sustainable solutions platform Innovation Forum, which will call attention to a curated selection of the world's most promising solution providers.

The Innovation Forum will enable participating fashion brands to meet with +50 solution providers covering the entire supply chain - from innovative fabrics to green packaging solutions. The forum will also have a pitch stage for presentation of disruptive innovations and a speed dating event with more than 350 pre-scheduled business meetings between brands and providers based on a prior screening and matchmaking process.

The summit will see high-level keynote speakers, their names to be released in the coming months, just as the Leadership Assembly, a key component of the Summit, will convene industry decision-makers, civil society and government for closed-door roundtable discussions and public-private dialogues on the most urgent environmental, social and ethical issues.

Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2018 participants can also look forward to familiar, well-known features, such the release of the annual Pulse of the Fashion Industry report, a presentation from the Youth Fashion Summit, which just announced a partnership with the United Nations Global Compact focusing specifically on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 Good Health and Well-being and SDG 5 Gender Equality, as well as several facilitated networking sessions and panel debates on the most critical topics facing the industry.
