1 International convention and 2 local events per year, exclusive to our members

Unique Industry Experiences with IACDE. iacde has driven advancement of the industry since 1910.


The IACDE organizes a high-profile international convention every year in different cities around the world, where the best speakers of the world’s most renowned companies give their vision on the future of the industry, and through hands-on workshops, seminars, or demonstrations, share their knowledge with our members. The IACDE is unique in that sense and offers as the only organization in the world the necessary infrastructure and leadership to accomplish this.

From Florence to Porto, from Amsterdam to Stockholm, from Montreal to New York – we’ve been there. Explore these cities with your colleagues as part of an all-out learning event.

Our next international convention will take place in Rome, Italy, at the end of September 2023 and will revolve around “Sustainability in the Apparel Industry”. Details are to follow soon.

local events

The IACDE local chapters organize 2 or more events per year. These events often involve visits to local ateliers, mills, factories, schools, or technology companies and is aimed at expanding the knowledge of our members. Many local chapters then host another food-and-drinks night around the Holidays.

Experience unique events where you can network with representatives of local companies and your fellow IACDE members, expand your knowledge, discover new technologies, or perhaps your next employee or career opportunity.
