"From the first edition, we have supported Intex South Asia with a little bit of apprehension to its success and implementation, but seeing the growth and potential over the years, today when I stand here, I would like to use the words excellent. Excellent in the progress they have made year-on-year. Today, the show would be impressive in terms of participation and variety of quality textile products available at this regional sourcing platform created in Sri Lanka. It’s truly impressive for bringing so many exhibitors to Intex South Asia in Sri Lanka and we welcome all to have a good time and enjoy the warm hospitality in Sri Lanka," Sharad Amalean, chairman of Joint Apparel Association Forum and deputy managing director of MAS Holdings said.
For the first time, a panel discussion on 'Textile 4.0 – South Asia Dialogue’ highlighting the upcoming industry trends was organised alongside Fashion Fiesta – Intex South Asia’s networking event which was well attended by an august gathering of more than 500 industry representatives. The members presented their views on the challenges and future of the textiles & apparel industry of South Asia and how they see 4.0 concept could be implemented in their respective countries and businesses. The discussion was gracefully moderated by industry veteran Rahul Mehta, president CMAI .
This year’s Interactive Business Forum was a huge success where Sarah Schlenger, Research & Development (R&D) Commercialization Manager - US of The Woolmark Company (TWC) presented the use of Merino Wool in today’s fashion garments such as active wear, athleisure, eveningwear and TWC’s focus on innovation related to product development from luxury to performance as well as fashion trends/forecast for 2019/2020. The second session was presented by Dr Shafiq Ahmad, country manager - Pakistan of Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) who gave valuable insights on ‘Future Proofing for Business – The Sustainable Way’, the role and commitment of BCI towards sustainability and Global brands associated with sustainable cotton sourcing. An interaction post the forum was quite encouraging for the industry professionals (domestic as well as international) who attended the event in large numbers.
The 5th edition of Intex South Asia is scheduled to begin from November 20 at the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Memorial Exhibition Centre (BMICH) in Colombo, Sri Lanka. (RR)
