Bangladesh Denim Expo will take place from November 11 to 12, 2014. This is an international denim trade show and celebrates and explores the world of denim. It’s an exclusive event only for authorized trade visitors. Vendors can network, build contacts and meet others involved in the denim industry. The companies involved in sustainable solutions will also be present. Apart from workshops there will be a seminar focusing on exciting new trends, finishes and the latest washes.
The aim of the expo is to showcase Bangladeshi denim brands to the global market and to make Bangladesh a one-stop sourcing platform for denim. Bangladesh is currently the second largest country which exports denim to Europe and the third largest in exports to the US.
A total of 11 foreign participants took part in the last denim expo while organisers are expecting a bigger turnout of apparel entrepreneurs, businessmen, fashion professionals and stakeholders of the industry from the US, Europe and several Asian countries. At present, there are 25 denim fabric manufacturers in Bangladesh. The country earns around $600 million per annum from denim exports to the global market.
The event is aimed at creating a platform for Bangladeshi denim makers and helping them yield a greater brand value in the global market.
