August 15 | Ecotrust • Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center| Portland, Oregon
EVENT: AAPN Regional Events are open to all executives in the textile/apparel supply chain. Our goal is to raise your 'Apparel IQ' and provide a safe networking environment for those of you who are interested in broadening your "go to" Network. We generally have 80 – 100 attendees from all links in the chain … AAPN membership is not required.
AGENDA: Synthetics & Sustainability in the Americas
1:00 pm – Badge pick-up and Networking at the Billy Frank, Jr. Conference Center at Ecotrust
1:30 pm – 5:30 Regional Conference
5:30 pm – Adjourn to the Rooftop Terrace for Cocktails & Networking
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Entry level and up who are interested in learning more about investing in their career; using industry resources; sourcing in the Americas; innovations in synthetics; networking with apparel leaders; and the breadth of the apparel supply chain in the Western Hemisphere.
FORMAT: AAPN events are informal. While we do publish agendas, we are the only organization in the industry that allows its members to learn from themselves. We draw from corporate leaders across the entire supply chain 'from the dirt to the shirt' – Owners, CEOs, Senior Management – to learn from those with their fingers on the pulse of the industry. We share what keeps us up at night because ground level intelligence has never been more important than now.
TESTIMONIAL: From Lynne Sprugel, Sr VP, Academy Sports + Outdoors: "AAPN has gone where no other industry organizations have gone. AAPN has created more business relationships than Linkedin and eHarmony. You have connected countries, businesses and interfaced with Presidents. You have melted, shaped, molded and innovated AAPN. You have built a business model in “connection economics”……creating value through increased interactions between people, businesses and services."
REGISTRATION FEE: $150/person regardless of AAPN Membership status. Our Regional Event is open to anyone doing business in the Textile/Apparel Supply Chain.
