New Table Talk Programme at SEEK and PREMIUM

Berlin, 10 December 2019 – Necessity is the mother of invention. As the industry’s most bustling connectors, the teams behind SEEK and PREMIUM once again invite the game-changers of the fashion world to discuss a responsible future, exchange and transfer knowledge within and beyond the fashion industry. From 14-16 January 2020, experts will gather at PREMIUM and SEEK to share, connect, benefit from each other and start new, good collaborations with other brands, buyers and experts.

Hall 3 at PREMIUM, STATION Berlin

“The fashion industry is among the biggest polluters on Earth. As a trade show organiser we feel obliged to act responsibly and to play our part,” says Alina Hahn (SEEK). “The key players already converge at our trade shows. Thanks to the new content platforms we can now give exhibitors, experts and buyers a stage where they can share valuable knowledge and experience and have a crucial impact. With each other, not against each other!”

Several Table Talks and Networking Rounds with and by visionary speakers from the industry will take place at PREMIUM and the new FASHIONTECH Studio at SEEK. To guarantee the relevance of the topics and line-up, the PREMIUM GROUP project team got support from Dorothee Sarah Speha, DS Agency, and Mathilde Charpail and Olga Johnston Antonova from Sustain Your Style.

"Sustainability is leaving its niche and manifesting within big events and fashion platforms", explains Sustainable Culture Advisor Dorothee Sarah Speha (DS Agency). "Being a part of the Responsible Future Project of PREMIUM and SEEK is a great chance to help shaping how we can create an authentic sustainable momentum."

The stages will be at SEEK’s Glashaus at the back of Arena Berlin and in PREMIUM’s popular Hall 3 in the heart of STATION-Berlin.

We hereby invite you to join the programme, enrich the discussions and be part of the movement!
