On 28 March, the French Chamber in Hong Kong was delighted to welcome 200+ high-level sourcing professionals to the Harbour Grand for the 9th edition of the Chamber’s annual sourcing symposium Made in Asia.
Under the guidance of the Chamber’s Sourcing Club, 11 top speakers from the world of sourcing – from giants of apparel to leaders in the diamond trade – brought their insight for a full day of exchanges on the future of the industry.
Of course, the day likewise provided ample opportunity for networking as one of the key events of the annual sourcing calendar which gathers some of the industry’s biggest players together in one place.
So what does the future of sourcing look like? Well, whatever it may be – that future will be thoroughly driven by the customer. If you want a better idea of what that means, feel free to check out a selection of presentations from the day which have kindly been shared by the speakers below.
Thank you to our valuable sponsors: Pivot88, BNP Paribas, Global Sources, HSBC, QIMA, Fiducia Management Consultants, KPMG, Velocity Business Solutions
