Twelfth edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo will reopen its doors after a two-year break at the International Convention City Bashundhara (ICCB) in Dhaka on May 10.

With the theme of “Beyond Business”, the two-day show addresses the new opportunities for successful and sustainable business, a press release said.

As many as 79 exhibitors are set to attend the event, consisting of both local and international participants.

In this edition, exhibitors will display fabrics, garments, threads, machinery, finishing equipment and accessories, to give a true representation of Bangladesh’s denim industry - the largest denim exporter to the EU and the USA.

Through a series of product displays, seminar sessions and panel discussions, the expo will encourage robust interaction among exhibitors and visitors.

Eight seminar sessions and two panel discussions will be held in this edition of the expo.

Bangladesh Denim Expo founder and Chief Executive Officer Mostafiz Uddin said, “The world is a slightly different place since the last edition of this show, which took place two years ago. Denim supply chains have experienced major turbulence and disruption and have been forced to innovate and adapt in order to survive and remain relevant.

“The pandemic has forced suppliers to double-down on sustainability issues. That is what global consumers are demanding in the post-pandemic world, and this message is being passed down supply chains through fashion brands and retailers.

“Our show will act as a lightning rod on these issues, bringing together all the denim stakeholders from across the world under the roof of the Expo,” he added.
