The first ever ‘Dhaka Apparel Summit 2014’, organized by the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), will be held from December 7-9, 2014, at Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC), Dhaka.

The Dhaka Apparel Summit is being organized with the objective of framing a sustainable road map on building responsible, global supply chains in the textiles and garment sector that contribute to its sustainable development and inclusive growth of the economy.

The summit will feature a number of panel sessions over three days participated by representatives of governments of home and partner countries, international organizations, employers, private sectors, workers’ representatives, civil society organizations, brand representatives and buyers, academics and media.

There would be several panel discussions on topics like environmental sustainability, products and market diversification and global tariff structure, which will benefit local apparel makers to be enriched and knowledgeable about latest apparel technologies and fashion.

A safety expo styled ‘Bangladesh Building and Fire Safety Expo, 2014’ will also be held, where safety equipment producers will display their products to make it familiar to the factory owners.

Brands, fashion designers, sourcing executives and experts from home and abroad are expected to attend the summit to share their experiences and gather knowledge about Bangladesh’s apparel industry.

A number of international experts will take part in exposition, which includes Tyler Gillard, legal expert at the OECD Investment Division; Wilma Wallace, deputy general counsel and vice president Gap Inc; Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher; Prof Arnold M Zack, arbitrator and mediator, Prof at Harvard Law School; Avedis H Seferian, president & CEO of Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production; etc. (GK)
