It is not where you Source, it is how finding the right product for the actual consumer

Magic is the event to source (August 15-17, 2016) in Las Vegas, USA

For decades, the fashion industry has focused on sourcing the right product at the right price–and where that product can be found. Recently, Magichowever, the industry takes a look at issues other than the “where” and the price. Today, the right product meets consumers’ needs not just for price, but also for design, quality, and speed. And often, the right product must be produced in an ethical, sustainable way–even if it increases the price. Join a group of leading sourcing experts who will discuss not necessarily where they source, but how–and gain intelligence on how you can meet the needs of your consumer.
