Summit 2020 Moves to October

In light of the growing public health concerns around the COVID-19, we have decided to move Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2020 to the autumn. While this was certainly a difficult decision, we believe it is the only responsible and sensible thing to do, taking the global health uncertainties and authority recommendations into consideration.

The 2020 Summit will take place on 12-13 October at Copenhagen Concert Hall. In the coming months, we will reveal more of the content – delivering the exact same high-level programme and networking opportunities as always. We hope you can join us for the 2020 Summit in Copenhagen during the beautiful autumn month of October.

Redesigning Growth

Creativity and ingenuity built the fashion industry  can they also transform it?

Redesigning Growth, the theme of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2020, might seem like a daunting topic, but it isn’t an impossible task for an industry that is built on creativity and ingenuity. The fashion industry is a powerful engine for global growth and development, but the current model is pushing the earth beyond its planetary boundaries and challenging social justice. 

Fashion industry leaders must ask themselves: How can we approach profitability and reconfigure the parameters of success? Let’s come together as an industry at the Summit to create impact by navigating the challenges, exploring solutions and redesigning growth. Copenhagen Fashion Summit is the leading business event on sustainability in fashion, organised by Global Fashion Agenda.
