Denim Expo to focus on building networks
Bangladesh Denim Expo to be held in May will focus on building networks within global brands and retailers as organisers think Bangladesh emerges as the ultimate destination of denim. The sixth edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo will be held in between May 17 and 18 at the International Convention City Bashundhara Dhaka. The theme of the show will be “Denim Networks” which will put emphasis on the growing importance of developing long-term relationships and shared strategies to improve sustainable manufacturing in the country with contemporary denim industry. “Network is a key concept of contemporary society, and the denim industry is the highest expression of this,” said Md Mostafiz Uddin, Founder and CEO of Bangladesh Denim Expo. “To face the important challenges ahead for markets nowadays, we believe that is absolutely necessary to create connections, share knowledge and ideas, building together as a community – the best practices that will shape a brighter and more sustainable future for denim,” he said.
