The second edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo will take place in Dhaka from 11 to 12 May 2015, at the Radisson Blu Water Garden Hotel Dhaka, from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm for both days.
The event will give buyers a taste of what’s to come from the Asian nation’s denim industry; being the second largest exporter of jeans to the EU and the third largest exporter to the U.S. Showcasing 25 exhibitors, the expo looks to better business practices and working conditions in Bangladesh. A fund for a Denim University in Bangladesh will be started with any surplus funds from the show.
The previous Expo edition, held in November 2014, attracted more than 2,500 fashion industry professionals, including buyers from Primark and H&M. As its first edition, the event is meant to offer international fashion buyers a one-stop sourcing platform for jeans-wear manufacturing and act as a hub for international denim insiders to meet up with colleagues, establish new contacts and business deals.
Bangladesh Denim Expo wants to celebrate the country’s key role in the denim scene today and explore its position in the industry’s future development. It aims to showcase the country’s high potential growth for the denim market. The Expo will be characterized by the spirit of a collective that will host about 25 specialized companies who are part of this productive chain.
