Don’t Miss NGC and Xcel Brands at AAFA’s Executive Summit, March 1-3

February 23, 2017

AAFA Executive Summit is the “can’t miss” show of the year for apparel retailers, brands and vendors. The Executive Summit, happening March 1-3 at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C., brings together senior level executives from retail, apparel, footwear and fashion accessory brands around the U.S. and globe for two days of thought-provoking dialogue. The show provides a great opportunity to network and learn what retailers and brands are doing across their business to streamline production and improve their systems – something we aim to help our customers achieve.

This year we are thrilled to not only sponsor the show, but our own Mark Burstein will also introduce Xcel Brands’ session “Supply Chain Rebels: Optimize Lead Time, Maximize Profits” at 4:20 pm on Wednesday, March 1. During this session Bob W. D’Loren, Chairman and CEO of Xcel Brands, will share Xcel Brands’ lessons learned in their journey to supply chain excellence. Robert will discuss how fast-fashion processes are now necessary for every major retailer and manufacturer’s arsenal.

Xcel Brands is the ideal company to address this topic, with their implementation of NGC’s Global Enterprise Suite to improve design and production efficiency and reduce lead times. Our Global Enterprise Suite, comprised of NGC’s PLM, ERP and SCM solutions, has allowed Xcel Brands to respond quickly to the latest sales trends, as evidenced by their rapid response to a sold-out blouse at Lord & Taylor last year.

We look forward to seeing you at the AAFA Executive Summit! Let us know if you’d like to meet to discuss how we can help you streamline your production and increase your speed to market.
