First China Symposium & Sourcing Fair Planned For Shanghai

MAY 11, 2004 -- Apparel executives will now be able to optimize their opportunities in the growing China textile and apparel industry, thanks to Apparel magazine's first China Symposium & Sourcing Fair, September 13-16, 2004, in Shanghai.

"This unique event will allow attendees to meet the 'real' China, in China," said Apparel publisher Susan Black. "As we stand on the brink of 2005 and a quota-free world, with China on the leading edge in terms of growth potential, it's an opportune time for apparel executives to explore or enhance their China strategies and partnerships." Apparel's China Symposium & Sourcing Fair will have high-level market information and networking at its core. Attendees will benefit from in-depth industry knowledge from leading experts, as well as direct, personal connections with potential partners relative to the sourcing of both raw materials and apparel, as well as licensing and retailing opportunities.

The Symposium program will include a full day of practical market information in six sessions on subjects ranging from "The State of China's Apparel Industry" to "China's Retail Future." It also will include private meetings with potential sourcing partners, facilitated by a pre-arranged information exchange; admission to the two-day Sourcing Fair; and complimentary tours of area apparel and textile facilities.

"Our goal at the Symposium is to facilitate a high-level exchange of real-world, must-know information," said Black. "For example, we're pleased to have Bart S. Fisher, a world-renowned expert on international trade and investment, leading a session on 'Protecting the Unprotectable: Structuring and Financing Your Business in China.'"

Managing partner of the law office of Bart S. Fisher in Washington, DC, Fisher was trade counsel for the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation of the People's Republic of China in 1999 and 2000. He has written numerous articles on international trade, including "Let China in the WTO," published in The Washington Post in April 1999. Fisher also is the author of "Barter in the World Economy" and co-author of "International Trade and Investment: Regulating International Business," the latter of which has been used as the standard casebook on international trade and investment in many law schools in the United States.

Registration for Apparel's China Symposium & Souring Fair is $1,500 and includes all Symposium sessions, followed by a networking reception and dinner; facilitation of private, pre-arranged meetings with potential partners; two days' admittance to the Sourcing Fair; a day of optional tours; and some meals. Additional attendees from the same company may register for $1,000. For registration details, email [email protected] For sponsorship information, email [email protected] [email protected]

Apparel's China Symposium & Sourcing Fair is jointly produced with VNU Exhibitions Asia, Shanghai, China.
