AAPN Weekly Roundup 5/4/18


Friday’s here, but our week isn’t over, as we are busy putting the final touches to the plans, schedules and more for our 2018 pro: Americas Annual Conference, which kicks off on Sunday, May 6 in Miami. We’re looking forward to seeing many of you there and to three amazing days of learning, networking, great conversation and more.

Over on our blog this week Mike took a look at the changing fortunes of the textile industry in China, at Amazon’s rumored plans to shake up the retail landscape (again) and shared with us some of his favorite quotes from another great book he discovered. We also took a look at the expansion of environmentally friendly textile creation, a growing sector of the industry which is very much led by one of the pioneers of the idea, AAPN’s own Unifi.

So that was our week (so far). We hope to see you in Miami in a few days, or hear from you – and all about your week – via our Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn pages.

At the AAPN, we believe that doing business in the USA and the Americas is easier, faster, safer, and just plain better. Sure, if you want to source huge quantities; and you know what will sell way in advance; and you are not worried about flexibility; and you just want cheap; then there are plenty of mega-factories in the world that will take your orders. But if you are looking for a more flexible sourcing model, one that better aligns with today’s fickle, hyper-connected, want-it-my-way-consumer, then you need to look to the Americas.
