DHAKA, May 10 (Xinhua) -- After a two-year break, the Bangladesh Denim Expo was again held in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka.
The 12th edition of the exhibition themed "Beyond Business" kicked off Tuesday.
The expo has attracted a total of 79 participants from about 10 countries, offering international fashion buyers a one-stop sourcing platform for all aspects of jeans wear.
Exclusive to authorized trade visitors, the expo acts as an important platform for players in the international denim trade to mingle with other people of the fraternity, make new contacts and broker deals.
"We're expecting an increased number of exhibitors and visitors from home and abroad this time," said Mostafiz Uddin, founder and chief executive officer of the Bangladesh Denim Expo.
He said "The world is a slightly different place since the last edition of this show, which took place two years ago. Denim supply chains have experienced major turbulence and disruption and have been forced to innovate and adapt in order to survive and remain relevant."
Against this backdrop, the organizer said this year's Bangladesh Denim Expo addresses the new opportunities for successful and sustainable business in a world that now demands the industry leaders to go "Beyond Business."
