Bangladesh Denim Expo exclusively featured in “See now, Buy now – Bangladesh 2017”
The importance of Bangladesh Denim Expo as an event that has been able to develop connections between buyers and local companies is confirmed by the inclusion of its May 2017 edition as the only local event in Bangladesh in the calendar of “See now, Buy now – Bangladesh 2017”, a very important project that aims to connect international buyers with the Bangladesh suppliers. The project is promoted by the CBI (Center for Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries), an agency of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with BGMEA, and will take place in May-June 2017 with two exclusive Buying Missions. For the first time the Bangladesh Denim Expo has been officially included as appointment of the first Buying Mission, adding unique value for all exhibitors and representing a great opportunity for the whole sector.
“Network is a key concept of contemporary society, and the denim industry is the highest expression of this. To face the important challenges ahead for markets nowadays, we believe that is absolutely necessary to create connections, share knowledge and ideas, building together – as a community – the best practices that will shape a brighter and more sustainable future for denim”, claims Md. Mostafiz Uddin, Founder & CEO of Bangladesh Denim Expo.
Bangladesh Denim Expo is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, specifically established to act as a hub where key denim industry players can congregate and share their passion for denim. Launched in November 2014 by the visionary idea of Md. Mostafiz Uddin to create an international cutting-edge denim community in Bangladesh, the Expo takes place two times each year and has shown an incredible and constant increase in numbers since then. Visitors have increased from 2,601 the first year to 5,010 registered for the 5th edition (November 2016). Participating companies have increased from 843 the first year to 1023 in the 5th edition (November 2016).
