Cavano will Deliver Keynote Session and Host Luncheon at Sri Lanka’s Premier Apparel & Fashion Forum
NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2012 – TradeCard, Inc., the supply chain collaboration and global trade platform used by more than 10,000 retailers, brands, manufacturers and service providers, announced today that Founder & Chairman Kurt Cavano will be a headline speaker at the Sri Lanka Design Festival (SLDF) being held in Colombo November 15-18, 2012. Cavano will discuss emerging global retail and consumer trends and supply chain strategies being deployed to meet changing consumer expectations.
“A new wave of retail consumer trends is beginning to ‘wag the tail’ of the supply chain,” said Cavano. “There’s a lot of talk today about omni-channel, but a series of underlying factors are driving this experiential change for consumers. As a result, retailers and brands have to reformulate their supply chain strategies to match this paradigm shift in consumer demand.”
“TradeCard is a very active supporter of the Sri Lankan Apparel Industry,” said Linda Speldewinde, Founder of Sri Lanka Design Festival. “With SLDF, TradeCard has maintained a close relationship with Lankan apparel makers, especially those who pioneer in green and ethical initiatives and those keen to involve with new technology. We’re glad to have TradeCard on board and we are thankful for the continuous support.”
