1st Fashion Retailing Conference

News

Join us in Montreal on April 27-28, 2018 for the 1st Fashion Retailing Conference.

Organized by the Bensadoun Retail Initiative, this conference will provide a forum for exchange —for both professionals and academics— at the newly opened Donald E. Armstrong Building. An impressive roster of academic and practitioner speakers will foster discussions about the latest research, industry practices & approaches, trends & challenges in retail.

To facilitate cross-pollination of ideas, the event is highly interdisciplinary, and will have speakers/participants coming from a range of expertise (e.g., operations, marketing, IS/technology, computer science, sustainability).

While the conference aims to highlight topics of discussions centered around the retail fashion industry, these discussions will more broadly touch on more general aspects related to operations, branding and pricing, new technologies, big data, machine learning, and social responsibility related to all sectors of retailing.  A particular focus will be on AI-related aspects of retailing.

  • Registration is free; however you must register before April 12 if you plan to attend.
