Fashion Innovation Award rescheduled due to Covid-19 / Coronavirus
It is with enormous regret that, due to the continuing Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, we must postpone the Fashion Innovation Award. The new date for the event is:
Fashion Innovation Award
Tuesday, October 20, 2020
Rescheduling allows us to ensure an optimal experience for everyone involved. The venue, agenda and incredible jury-member line-up remain essentially the same, promising exceptional networking, idea sharing and business creation opportunities as always.
We would like to thank all those involved in the award: our speakers, our sponsors, suppliers and other partners for all their support in this difficult moment. Please continue to follow us on our sites and socials and we look forward to welcoming you in Lugano on the new event date.
