5th March 2020: IMPORTANT UPDATE

Fashion Innovation Week and Innovation Meets Fashion event rescheduled due to Covid-19 / Coronavirus

The Netcomm Suisse Fashion Innovation Week, and its main event, Innovation Meets Fashion, are a fixture of the European digital industry calendar, bringing together thousands of brand leaders, tech companies and innovators. Over the past 6 years these events have helped Ticino be recognized as the LifestyleTech hub of Europe.  

It is with enormous regret that, due to the continuing Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, we must postpone the events of Fashion Innovation Week to a new date which we are still trying to determine. 

We are in near constant contact with the local and cantonal authorities to determine the most appropriate date for the event to go ahead. We can inform you that the two options we are considering are:

  1. Week beginning May 18th 2020
  2. Week beginning October 19th 2020

We commit to informing you by March 31st 2020 which of the two dates has been given the OK. Registered attendees, sponsors and speakers will be informed by mail; if you have not yet registered your ticket, you can check back here for regular updates.

Rescheduling Fashion Innovation Week, including the main event, Innovation Meets Fashion allows us to ensure an optimal experience for everyone involved. The venue, agenda and incredible speaker line-up remain essentially the same, promising exceptional networking, idea sharing and business creation opportunities as always.

We would like to thank all those involved in Fashion Innovation Week: our speakers, our sponsors, suppliers and other partners for all their support in this difficult moment. Please continue to follow us on our sites and socials and we look forward to welcoming you in Lugano on the new event date.  


The official Fashion Innovation Week 2020 website is now live with useful information as well as the confirmed speakers and sponsors. 



This five-day event sees expert fashion professionals and brands alongside the likes of big swiss retailers, who gather together to listen to international keynote speakers and network with their peers. There is a strong focus on how the market is moving from thinking purely in terms of retail to considering instead new business models, all based on digital innovation.

Understanding how to market and sell fashion products online is crucial in a multichannel driven environment. Indeed, during this conference we outline the best practices and emerging technologies through: thought leadership, panel discussions, specific case studies and sharing success stories.
