I just got back from the inaugural event of UK India Business Council Next Gen North West, which Imran Hakim arranged on behalf of the Board on the textile industry at the University of Bolton. The event was well attended, and included some of the hottest names in the textile industry in the north west of England, including Tariq Marfani (Tarameen #850 staff), Neeraj Takiar (Eternity Clothing), Charles Wood (Baltex), Adrian Tracey (Future Textiles), Ashok Kallumpram (Premier Textiles), Andrew Borman (Helston Forensics) and Mark Pedley (Smartlife Technology). Notably absent was Raj Ruia, but he was represented by the General Manager of Richard Haworth. Vikas Shah (Swiscot) also missed the event.
The event covered the subject in detail from history to new opportunities. Mark Pedley introduced smart cloths, whilst prof Subhash Anand entertained the audience.
The event was organised in association with number of other organisations and included an exhibition.
I believe I was the only one to tweet the event. Click on the thumbnail to access my tweets. Please do ignore the tweets of others, as their conversation was not relevant to this event.
