If you’re in Paris this Wednesday & Thursday (4th & 5th of November), come check TRAFFIC, the innovative services fair for fashion brands. Hosted by the French Ready-to-Wear Federation at Carreau du Temple, this first edition aims at federating fashion brands around a wide range of innovative services providers.
From traditional services providers such as Export, Finance/Account consultants or Communication agencies, to startups, the fair was created to bridge the gap between established fashion brands, startups and services providers through 3 main objectives:
- Facilitating connections between fashion businesses and the right professionals to help them with their challenges,
- Presenting all the existing fashion-focused services, programs, and solutions,
- Showcase the French and international innovations that serve the fashion industry.
Aside from the exhibitors’ space, conferences and country-workshops will happen throughout the two days, with a focus on innovation through wearable tech on Wednesday morning (we listed the fashion tech-related conferences below). Come talk to us if you happen to be there!
