Meet the PERFORMANCE FORUM Jury
Launched in 2009, the PERFORMANCE FORUM is the first trend forum devoted to fabric categories such as BASELAYER, MIDLAYER, SOFTSHELL & OUTER MIDLAYER, 2.5 & 3LAYER, 2LAYER, LIGHTWEIGHT & DOWNPROOF, SHIRT, PANTS & TIGHTS, LIFESTYLE, AND SAFETY & DURABILITY, rather than focusing solely on fashion subjects. Over time, the categories have expanded to include various accessories, while the underlying philosophy behind the concept remains unchanged.
The PERFORMANCE FORUM serves as a vital working tool for designers, buyers, and product managers. It offers a free and exclusive platform for all exhibitors, enabling them to showcase their innovations. The selection process is carried out by a jury comprising resident members and supported by seasonal industry experts, ensuring the highest standards of excellence.
Join us at the PERFORMANCE FORUM, where you can meet like-minded professionals, explore the latest fabric trends, and gain valuable insights for your design and sourcing endeavors.
