The Bangladesh Denim Expo is returning to Dhaka and will be held on May 11-12, 2015 shocasing the best denim and resources from Bangladesh and beyond.
“This show features denim mills, laundries, finishers and the entire denim supply chain, with the previous expo in November drawing more than 2,500 visitors,” a press release from the organisers informs.
According to the organisers, the event is an opportunity for international fashion professionals to visit Dhaka and experience the value, quality and fashion available in Bangladesh.
Exhibitors include Absolute Denim from Thailand, Raymond Uco from India, A&E from USA, Garmon from Italy and Bangladesh mills like Partex and manufacturer-laundries such as Denim Expert.
The Expo also features a trend seminar from leading forecaster WGSN, a dedicated Trend Zone and an invitation-only fashion show and dinner.
Mostafiz Uddin, founder of Bangladesh Denim Expo, says: “Bangladesh is the second largest supplier of denim goods to Europe, and the third largest to the USA and this expo showcases our passion for denim.”
“By pulling together at this professional event, we can lift up standards in Bangladesh and upgrade the international perception of our apparel industry,” he added.
The Bangladesh Denim Expo not only aims to grow the denim trade in Bangladesh, but also to encourage better business practices and raise living standards of Bangladeshi people.
Surplus funds from the show will be channeled into a seed fund for a Denim University in the country to train workers and promote knowledge about the jeans business.
