Le forum Mode en Scène que nous organisons à xxx est un forum des métiers de la mode avec pour thème: "Mode et Design) qui positionne les créateurs xxx(country) et étrangers parmi les acteurs de la filère.

Do you think i should translate Mode en Scène? If yes, how?

Thanks for suggestions!

Explanation:
I wouldn't translate it 1) because it is used as a proper name and 2) it is clearly defined afterwards. Plus all the related marketing materials (brochures, letterheads and/or posters) will probably have "Mode en Scène" on them. Besides anyone working in fashion most likely knows (or should know!) the word "mode".
If you look at the link below for Who's Next, the big fashion trade show in Paris, you'll see: 1) they never translate "Who's Next" into French even though it's in France and 2) they talk about "Paris sur mode" and never translate it either.
Hope this helps, but bear in mind, it is only my opinion.
