Bangladesh Denim Expo is ready for its ninth edition’s kickoff. The event gathering together denim insiders from all over the world will take place on November 7-8, 2018, in Dhaka’s International Convention City Bashundhara.
The show will host over 60 exhibitors globally from various sectors including fabric and material production and jeans manufacturing. Also participating the show will be companies from the chemical, equipment and technology industries.
This edition’s main focus will be “Simplicity,” a theme that will be analyzed throughout the show’s panel discussions, seminars and trend forecasts by internationally renowned experts and longtime insiders. This topic was chosen as clothing production is a complex process that involves different steps, sources and partners–often across far regions that are subject to diverse regulations. The show, instead, wants to demonstrate how the overall denim industry can act more effectively and sustainably by simplifying its processes and strategies.
Part of the program of this edition will be two panel discussions and five seminars aimed at informing and inspiring the audience.
Key speakers will be denim designer Piero Turk; Alice Tonello, R&D director of Tonello; Jordi Juani, sales director, Jeanologia; and Mario Morani, washing manager, Montega.
The first panel “Simplicity & Standardization in the Apparel Industry” will take place on November 7 at 6:00 pm and will discuss about how consistent standards and certificates for the global textile industry could simplify, accelerate and clarify the procedures between producer and buyer. Among this panel’s speakers will be personalities from Pacific Jeans, Shasha Denim and VF Asia.
The second panel discussion “Simplicity in Production–Innovation, Technology and Optimized Handling of Resources” will happen on November 8 at 6:00 pm and will analyze how technical progress is changing, optimizing production processes while supporting economic growth and helping achieving higher sustainable standards. This panel’s speakers will include representatives from Marks & Spencer, G-Star P.I.C. Bangladesh and Ananta Group, among others.
