Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics X CN-BC Joint Brokerage Event

On the 18th March, the Beneficial Design Institute took part in the first digital joint brokerage event by the Cooperation Network Berlin & China (CN-BC) during the INTERTEXTILE SHANGHAI APPAREL FABRICS trade fair for textiles in China.

We were kindly invited to present our portfolio and consulting services amongst six other German innovators in the field of fashion sustainability and digitalization following an inspiring keynote by Dr. Anne Prahl on key sustainable textile trends. We are looking forward to the upcoming business meetings resulting from this introduction.
