Supplier Meet-Ups

What are they?

 

Supplier Meet-Ups are private, off-the-record conversations open only to suppliers, held once per month, and hosted by the Asia Garment Hub. Each month, one supplier shares a specific challenge they’re facing while the rest of the group shares feedback and offers support. We’re a small group interested in developing meaningful interpersonal relationships. More often than not, the challenges raised during these sessions are shared, and, occasionally, they serve as a catalyst for more formal collaborations.

When are they?

The second Thursday of every month.

How do I join?

 

Because we are a small group dedicated to building real relationships and solidarity, we ask that interested suppliers commit to attending regularly and come with an openness to reflective dialogue and exchange.
