Bangladesh Denim Expo begins May 17
Bangladesh Denim Expo, 6th edition of its kind, will begin in Dhaka on May 17 to fulfill the needs of the international Denim community through close networking.

The theme for this edition of the expo is ‘Denim Networks’ that will highlight the importance of developing understanding and relationships in the Denim industry, reports UNB.

The expo will also help promote the importance of sustainability, addressing environmental and ecological issues that affect business apart from promoting ways to improve and develop best working practices.

“This season’s expo will deliver a dynamic environment to welcome all Denim lovers offering the perfect platform to develop new business relationships,” founder and CEO of Bangladesh Denim Expo Mostafiz Uddin said while commenting on the forthcoming two-day expo to be held at Bashundhara International Convention City.

He said they are expecting a large number of visitors in the expo that will exceed previous editions’ presence.

Mostafiz announced a platform – Sustainable Apparel Forum, the first-ever forum in Bangladesh investing in the future potential, sustainability and competitiveness of the apparel industry in the country.

A daylong conference of the forum will be held on May 17 on the sidelines of the expo that will feature speakers from globally recognised organisations.

Organisers said Bangladesh Denim Expo is an international platform showcasing the wealth of opportunities available in Bangladesh covering all aspects of the Denim supply chain with exhibitors displaying fabrics, garments, threads, machineries, finishing equipments and accessories – a true top to toe representation of the Denim industry.

The annual global denim sales amount to more than $56 billion which is expected to reach $64 billion by the end of 2020, industry insiders say.

In 2015, Bangladeshi denim products had a 22.88 per cent market share in the EU and 11.35 per cent in the US, data shows.

Meanwhile, the first Bangladeshi magazine – Bangladesh Denim Times - dedicated to denim products is already in the local market which is highlighting the rising of denim industry.
