Columbus Consulting is a key sponsor for the entire seminar series and will host a cocktail reception for participants, GFM alumni and industry professionals on the evening of Monday, Oct. 2.
The seminar series will bring to the forefront, current and future trends, advances in the fashion industry through technology, as well as highlight industry disruptors through various presentations, tours and networking opportunities.
“The fashion industry is facing unprecedented change as technology and retail disruptors shake up the scene,” said Jon Beck, CEO, Columbus Consulting. “Through our continued collaboration with FIT, we are able to give students real-world critical scenarios that we face and resolve on a daily basis as retail specialist consultants, giving them a set of critical thinking tools to better prepare them for their future in fashion.”
Additionally, the series will feature notable topics, including key sessions such as “Investing in Innovative Retail Technology and Rising New Brands,” and “Omni-Channel Story Telling.”
“Our New York Seminar Series is a visionary educational vehicle for FIT’s Global Fashion Management graduate program, designed to highlight and bring value to, not only our New York City constituents, but also our colleagues in Paris and Hong Kong by highlighting important trends, people, and changes in the apparel industry in the New York City area, and the country,” said Pamela Ellsworth, associate professor and chairperson, Global Fashion Management, Fashion Institute of Technology.
