THREADX: Changing the Garment Industry Conversation
Shifting markets and consumer behaviors and trends are forcing business owners to examine the services they offer and how their brand connects to consumers. So how are today’s garment businesses staying ahead of the curve? By connecting with their greater community — industry experts, peers and suppliers. And where it all takes place is THREADX, which returns for its second iteration February 17–19, 2019, in San Diego.
THREADX is not a how-to conference. It fosters a collaborative dialogue among the creative minds it draws in, while taking a deeper dive into what’s driving the industry and the strategies that are putting the movers and shakers on top.
The business owners, managers and influencers who attend THREADX know that to not evolve or change is to fall behind. They want to know what’s coming, they have questions and they want to grow — and they’re looking for the ideas and solutions to make it happen.
At THREADX 2019, attendees will learn where graphic design can take their business with Aaron Draplin (who’s also hosting a limited-space design workshop!), how the entrepreneurs behind Pandr Design Co. turned their failing business into a six-figure success story and how Zazzle has mastered the increasing demand for personalization. Additionally, panels featuring big players in professional sports merchandising and the innovators behind live activation experiences take an in-depth look at these lucrative opportunities.
And as the ideas flow, attendees have access to the network of sponsors that can help put concepts into action. With a smaller environment conducive to a focused experience for all attendees, THREADX provides an opportunity for developing key relationships with vendors.
But the connections don’t end after the sessions. Events including the welcome reception, “Brews & BBQ at Ballast Point,” a harbor cruise and “Boat Party for the Land Lovers” offer the chance to relax and hash out new ideas with industry peers against the scenic San Diego backdrop.
Whether you’re a garment decorator or supplier with solutions that can help take businesses to the next level, you don't want to miss the conversations at THREADX this February.
