The 7th edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo will focus on transparency of supply chain to show the buyers and consumers where and how the apparels are being produced. The seventh edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo will be held on November 8 and 9, 2017 at the International Convention City Bashundhara, Dhaka.
The demand for transparency in the textile and garment supply chains is growing. As a result, “Transparency” will be at the heart of the new edition with a series of actions and events that will let people to know about the manufacturing process, the organizer. It will help visitors as well as the buyers to know whole process of manufacturing a clothing product through a 3D show.
Transparency means people to know who make the products – from who stitched them right through to who dyed the fabric and who farmed the cotton, the expo organizer explained. When companies are working in a transparent way, this also implies openness, communication and accountability across the supply chain and with the public too, it added. This exhibition will offer a unique panel of companies exhibiting their top products and best practices centered around the main theme of the Expo, representing the full denim supplying chain.
“The vision of Bangladesh Denim Expo is to make Bangladesh a sourcing hub by creating a multinational gathering, exposing new business horizons and greater corporate opportunities for the entire denim value chain as well as uplifting the country’s image to the world,” Bangladesh Denim Expo Founder and CEO, Md. Mostafiz Uddin.
In a World, where ethics and responsibilities are currently questioned, the origin and story behind products is key. Transparency also means to bring in the issues of workers’ rights, well-being and working conditions under monitoring and accountability, said Mostafiz.
In the upcoming edition, a total of 58 exhibitors from across the world have already confirmed their participation. Of the total visitors 40 are from foreign countries, while 18 are from Bangladesh.
