Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) is going to organize Bangladesh Apparel & Safety Exposition Chittagong on 6-8 August 2015 with an aim to explore every avenue towards achieving the vision of US$ 50 billion of RMG export in 2021 set in the Dhaka Apparel Summit 2014. The 3-day event will be held at the Radisson Blu Chittagong Bay View.
Choosing Chittagong as the host city of the event bears special significance. Chittagong is the commercial hub of Bangladesh since 95% of the country’s sea-borne export and import is handled in Chittagong Port. Our garment industry started its journey in this port city in 1978 and till now a significant portion of the country’s apparel export is generated from Chittagong. Moreover, the first and largest Export Processing Zone (EPZ) of the country is situated in this city.
The mega expo will showcase locally developed apparel products and will provide an ideal opportunity to global apparel retailers to meet experienced clothing manufacturers of Bangladesh. The safety pavilion of the Expo is purposed to acquaint local apparel manufacturers with wide range of safety equipment and service providers. The event aims to facilitate dialogue among stakeholders in 4 informative seminars to devise ways for Bangladesh to pursue its US$ 50 billion vision and become a premium brand worldwide by 2021. The event will also showcase the caliber and cultural talent of Bangladesh garment workers.
Riding on 35 years of experience, Bangladesh is regarded as one of the preferred apparel sourcing destinations in the world. We hope the exposition will play a pivotal role in exploiting our potentials and ensuring a safe and sustainable apparel sector in Bangladesh.
Chittagong with all its natural treasures and surprises awaits your gracious presence at the expo!
