Members of the Clothing, Textiles, Footwear, Leather & Leather Goods Sectors are cordially invited to attend an Informative Workshop on both the PRODUCTION INCENTIVE PROGRAMME (PIP) and the COMPETITIVENESS IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMME (CIP) in view of the latest Guidelines for the 2013/14 financial year which were released on 28 March and 2 April 2013 respectively.
The Workshops will be facilitated by the dti Sector Desk and the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) who administers the programme on our behalf. The aim of the workshops is to highlight any changes to the programmes from the previous year, to explain how the PIP and CIP claim procedures work and to give you the opportunity to ask questions and obtain clarity on any issues.
The DSTV Fashion Arena at this year’s Design Indaba will showcase twenty designers under the auspices of the Cape Town Fashion Council who have carefully curated the 2013 line-up of participating designers.
Kelly Berman – Design Indaba Expo Manager
After months of hard work reviewing exhibitor applications, planning new features and putting all the small details into place, the most fulfilling part of working on Design Indaba Expo is seeing it all come together on site. There is such fantastic positive energy on the expo floor where all the designers’ work pays off.
