The 14th edition of the Dhaka International Textile and Garment Machinery (DTG) exhibition, the largest trade fair of its kind in Bangladesh will be held from February 23-26. The fair is likely to be attended by over 1,000 exhibitors from 33 countries including India, UK, US, Italy, Japan, Pakistan, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Hong Kong and more.

Exhibitors will showcase a variety of equipment, products, technologies as well as services and information concerning all the textile and garment processing and production aspects such as spinning, weaving, knitting, dyeing, printing, finishing, testing, washing, embroidery, sewing and more.

Jointly organised by Bangladesh Textile Mills Association (BTMA), Chan Chao International Co., Ltd and Yorkers Trade & Marketing Service Co. Ltd, the fair will include the Celebrity Hall for the first time this year. The hall, located on the ground floor of Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC), will be used to highlight high-end overseas apparel fabrics and accessories brands.

Inspired by prosperous economic outlook and competitive labour force of Bangladesh, many international brands have come to attend the fair to develop a solid presence and tap better business opportunities in the country. Among them are world’s leading brands covering comprehensive textile & garment supply chains, such as Mayer & Cie, Pai Lung, Santoni, Shima Seiki, Stoll, Terrot, Picanol, M&R, CTMTC, Fong's, Groz-Beckert, Karl Mayer, LMW, Rieter, Saurer, Truetzschler and Toyota.

Ever since its inception, DTG has been renowned for its high turnout of international exhibitors and trade visitors. It is widely seen as a must-visit, leading textile and garment machinery fair in Bangladesh. Visitors of the fair will be able to source a wide range of quality machines, learn the latest industrial developments, and partner with key industry players. It is one of the best opportunities to build contacts with potential business partners and access the global textile and garment value chains.

Over the past few years, Bangladesh has witnessed and greatly benefited from rapid development of the export-oriented textile industry. Bangladesh is now the second largest RMG exporters in the world. Textile and garment industry is the most important segment of Bangladesh's manufacturing industry, accounting for 80 per cent of total export earnings and employing 4.4 million people. 

Bangladesh also enjoys duty-free exports to the EU under the most privileged ‘Everything but Arms (EBA)’ trade scheme, and gains a lot of support from its global trade partners. Among them, Germany, now the single largest export outlet for Bangladesh-made garments next to the US, has promised to help the country’s garment industry double its export volume. With these robust advantages, Bangladesh is emerging as a new garment manufacturing hub in Asia.

DTG showcases new technology, state-of-the-art equipments, materials and services, as well as an excellent avenue for international suppliers and visitors to expand business to the lucrative market and accelerate Bangladeshi technological advances that will impart effective quality, high speed and competitive cost to gain that all important edge in textile and garments industry.
