Bangladesh brings best suppliers to UK fashion & textile buyers

Jul '10
The Bangladesh clothing industry is set to hold its first ever supplier exhibition in the UK at the Hilton London Metropole Hotel, Monarch Suite, on Monday 27th (10.00.am to 6.00pm) and Tuesday 28th (10.00am to 5.30pm) September 2010.

The Bangladesh Clothing Show 2010 will showcase nearly 80 of the country's most innovative and successful ladieswear, menswear, childrenswear and knitwear manufacturers, textile dyers, printers and finishers, buying houses/agents and logistics providers. The exhibition will allow fashion designers, buyers for retailers, brands, corporate clothing and mail order groups, wholesalers and relevant trade associations from the UK and Europe to see the extensive breadth and quality of product available from Bangladesh and discuss face-to-face their specific sourcing requirements.

A key component of the exhibition will be to demonstrate Bangladesh suppliers' active commitment to ethical and standards' compliance encompassing the elimination of child labour, the empowerment of women and the implementation of ecological working practices and processes. There will also be a programme of organised networking and seminar events running alongside the show including presentations on trading in Bangladesh. The exhibition will also help promote British and other European business opportunities as Bangladeshi clothing companies are themselves major purchasers of intellectual property services, heavy duty machinery, chemicals and raw materials

The Bangladesh Clothing Show 2010 is being organised by Alliant event management in Bangladesh and GenX UK Limited. Commenting on the exhibition Mahbubur Rahman, event director, GenX said: “The UK is one of the top five target markets for Bangladeshi suppliers. London is one of the world's most important economic and fashion capitals and well connected to the rest of the world.

Buyers from all over the globe source from here so we hope that European-based companies will see it as an 'easy' and low cost opportunity to visit some of our best suppliers without having to travel all the way to Bangladesh.” He added: “We held hugely successful country events in Japan and Canada last year. We hope to replicate that success with the UK show and create the forum within which companies can meet, discuss issues, do business and build valuable long-term relationships.”

In addition to the Export Promotion Bureau of Bangladesh, EPB, which is a part of Ministry of Commerce, the show is being supported by the People's Republic of Bangladesh and the Bangladesh High Commission in the UK. It is also being supported by the Association of Suppliers to the British Clothing Industry (ASBCI); the Bangladesh Garments Manufacturer & Exporter Association, BGMEA; the Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturer & Exporter Association, BKMEA; Bangladesh Textile Mills Association, BTMA; Bangladesh Textile Mills Corporation, BTMC; and the leading Bangladesh TV - Channel-I. Company Clothing magazine in the UK is also supporting the show as its official media partner.
