What People Are Saying
Loved the event! Great way to connect with others in the industry, learn what they are working on, and hear brands’ digital strategic priorities.
As a first time attendee, I was very impressed and took away a lot of great information while being able to network with potential future partners. I’m looking forward to other great events from WWD.
This was my first time attending a WWD Summit. Although we are a small company, I gained invaluable knowledge and some new ideas that can be applied to us.
