BOSTON – Feb. 15, 2019PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the PI (Product Innovation) Apparel LA event on February 19-20 at the L.A. Grand Hotel.

PI Apparel brings together leaders in the fashion, apparel and footwear industry to discuss the challenges and technologies disrupting the industry. Topics to be featured at this year’s event include: Digital Product Creation, Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Sustainability, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Automation and Robotics, which perfectly align with the capabilities found within PTC’s Retail Platform.

PTC’s Retail Platform combines the industry-leading FlexPLM solution with both 2D and 3D design, AI and AR to enable brands and retailers to digitize and accelerate key development processes and gain insights from across the enterprise to drive better merchandising, design, and sourcing decisions.

“We’re delighted to sponsor and participate in this important industry gathering in Los Angeles,” said Bill Brewster, Senior Vice President and General Manager of PTC’s Retail Business Unit. “We’re excited to meet with business leaders and executives that are working to digitally transform their product design, development and supply chain processes. We look forward to sharing our know-how and demonstrating why so many companies are selecting PTC as their preferred PLM and digital transformation partner.”

PTC will highlight its latest Retail Platform capabilities at its booth with interactive on-site demos throughout the duration of the event. In addition, PTC will lead a thought-leadership session titled “Leveraging 3D and PLM to Speed Design and Development” that will take place on day one of the conference at 14:35 and will feature one of PTC’s valued and long-term customers, Decker’s Brands. The session will explore the demand for products to be produced at unprecedented speeds, and the impact of this on product design and development processes. Attendees will learn how 3D design can significantly reduce cycle time and how greater value can be achieved when 3D design tools are integrated with best-in-class PLM.


PTC helps companies around the world reinvent the way they design, manufacture, operate, and service things in and for a smart, connected world. In 1986 we revolutionized digital 3D design, and in 1998 were first to market with Internet-based product lifecycle management. Today, our leading industrial innovation platform and field-proven solutions enable you to unlock value at the convergence of the physical and digital worlds. With PTC, manufacturers and an ecosystem of partners and developers can capitalize on the promise of the Internet of Things and augmented reality technology today and drive the future of innovation.
