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.
