BANGADESH DENIM EXPO – CHAMPIONING SUSTAINABILITY & CHALLENGING DENIM INDUSTRY NORMS.
The much anticipated 11th edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo is set to take place on November 5th and 6th, 2019, at the International Convention City Bashundhara, Dhaka Bangladesh.
Faced with unprecedented demand from potential and existing exhibitors, as well as with requests from visitors to the Expo to increase the number of companies exhibiting at the event, we have implemented ambitious plans to meet these requests at this November 2019 edition. A new, purpose-built event area, adjacent to the existing ICCB Hall 4 building, will allow us to expand the number of exhibitors representing the very best companies from the international denim community. They will be showing the latest in denim developments and innovations for the fall/winter 2021 season. With an expanded roster of 100 local and international denim industry exhibitors and visitor numbers predicted to exceed 9000, the event will offer the perfect environment for discovering the latest in denim trends and advances in sustainable denim production techniques within Bangladesh.
Bangladesh Denim Expo was established 5 years ago to serve as an international platform showcasing the wealth of opportunities available in Bangladesh covering all aspects of the denim supply chain. This includes exhibitors displaying fabrics, garments, threads, machinery, finishing equipment, and accessories. A complete representation of the denim industry of the country, the second largest denim exporter to the EU and the third largest to the USA.
The underlying concept of the Bangladesh Denim Expo is to fulfill the needs of the international denim community, offering the opportunity to make new contacts, discover new products, and to gain a comprehensive overview of the latest developments available from the Bangladesh denim industry.
Besides promoting developments within the denim sector, the Expo is renowned for the promotion of sustainable initiatives, including the use of sustainable replenish-able materials for the construction of exhibitors booths, and display areas and the ongoing focus on worker’s rights and well-being.
Now in its fifth year and eleventh Edition, the Expo has grown in stature in terms of visitor numbers, exhibitor numbers and international recognition from visitors and trade press alike. Bangladesh Denim Expo is now regarded as the most prestigious denim trade event in the region, helping to promote Bangladesh and the Bangladeshi denim industry to a wider national and international audience.
For each edition of the Expo a theme has been selected to promote discussion among exhibitors, guests, and invited speakers, to inform denim industry trade professionals regarding sustainability, transparency, worker’s rights, and welfare. As well as circularity and better business practices for the local and international denim community to adopt and to serve as a basis for the numerous seminars and panel discussions hosted at the event.
The 11th edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo will be no different to our previous seasons, and we will be promoting the theme of RESPONSIBILITY during the event.
The theme aims to highlight the fact that all of us involved in the apparel industry have a degree of responsibility in terms of social, environmental, and economic responsibility to ensure that their products are being produced in the most ethical, environmentally friendly, and sustainable manner possible. And with the highest regard for worker’s safety and well-being.
The way that business and product development is conducted can have far reaching consequences on the environment, on the workers and the product’s end use and lifespan.
We,at Bangladesh Denim Expo, believe that it is the duty of all stakeholders in the apparel industry to acknowledge this responsibility and to analyse our business practices, for the benefit and welfare of all! Through a series of static product displays, presentations, seminar sessions and panel discussions we will encourage healthy debate and interaction among exhibitors and visitors to champion a more responsible denim industry.
Bangladesh Denim Expo has truly cemented itself as a much-awaited event in the international denim calendar, allowing new business relationships to be forged and to inform the local and international denim community about the diversity of denim production available in the country, whilst championing advances in sustainability, innovation and worker’s welfare.
The 11th edition of the Expo is set to be our most successful yet and we look forward to welcoming exhibitors and visitors alike, to the event, on 5th and 6th November 2019,
