Franco-German business workshop 2017

Welcome to the 1st Franco-German Business Workshop

Industry 4.0 - Challenges for Textile and Fashion Companies


The 1st Franco-German business workshop provides the opportunity to establish business contacts and network management via B2B meetings. The conference will be rounded off with pitch presentations of young companies and the possibility of bilateral exchange among participating companies.

Industry 4.0 opens up new business models and considerable potential for optimization in production and logistics. What new concepts and processes are coming to us? How can we change our products?

German and French representatives of the textile and fashion industry will be discussing this in an entrepreneur meeting in Schiltigheim (Strasbourg), France on November 15, 2017, organized by the German textile and clothing industry together with the French textile industry association and the French investment bank Bpifrance.
