OCTOBER 7-8, 2019




2018 was quite the year for sustainable fashion, and many predict 2019 will lead us even further into a new era of responsible production, retail and consumption.

More sustainable fashion conferences are popping up around the world, which is a positive sign of the times!!  However, with pressure on budgets and time, we realize this makes it difficult for you to decide just which ones to attend. 

So let us help you better understand WEAR - how we are different and what value we offer to our speakers, sponsors and attendees. We hope this will help you decide where to put your time, money and resources in 2019.

First, WEAR is smaller than most other sustainability conferences. And we're not apologizing for this. We aren't promising 500 or 1000+ attendees. What we have consistently delivered however, for the past 5 years, is approximately 200 highly engaged and passionate fashion industry professionals from around the world, who come together to make meaningful connections while doing a thorough analysis of the most relevant and pressing global topics facing our industry today. With consistency in attendance, it makes it easier to begin to build deeper connections and find lasting solutions. 

We always present the issues in a variety of engaging formats, each with opportunity for audience participation and interaction. We want to hear your questions. We want the entire room to hear your questions. This is what gets us thinking differently and is what leads to real change.

Our speakers are prepared for the tough questions. In fact, we encourage our audience to ask them! WEAR is safe place to have these sometimes difficult, but often meaningful, discussions. It is a platform for us to not only learn and be inspired, but to question and debate, to present both sides of a story, to share not only the solutions and the successes - but also the challenges and the obstacles that were overcome along the way. We believe this is where the real value lies.

So if you are looking to go deeper into the key issues, participate in relevant discussions, and share your point of view with industry experts, academics, activists, policy makers, brands and retailers alike - then WEAR is the right fit for you. 

And by going deeper, we don't mean you have to already be highly engaged in sustainability. You could just be getting started, which is super exciting. And so rather than feeling overwhelmed with just where to begin, WEAR can actually help you form a game plan - a roadmap - of where you and your company needs to go. What is feasible? What is affordable? What will create meaningful change?

This focus on impact is one of the biggest benefits of attending WEAR. Stay tuned for more details on how we are providing additional value to our 2019 attendees.

We work hard to offer something for everyone - which means that even leaders in this space will walk away having learned something new.  More than 90% of our speakers attend the full 2 days and engage in all sessions.

If WEAR seems like the right fit for you, then please add October 7-8 into your calendar this year. If you are interested in learning more about speaking, sponsorship or exhibiting at WEAR2019 - let's talk!  wear@fashiontakesaction.com

We hope you will join us in the fall!
