SILVIA TOLEDO MARKETING ACCOUNT MANAGER THE LYCRA COMPANY My name is Silvia, marketing manager from the Lycra Company. It’s the first time that we have participated in the Expo & we have found it very interesting. The show is very dynamic, we are developing our market in Bangladesh and we are participating as it is a great opportunity to present our products here. Bangladesh Denim Expo is a great fair, bringing people from different places in the denim industry together, here in Bangladesh. We very much appreciate the organization of this event, are happy to participate and, for sure, we will come back again!
NILGUN BASKAN MANAGING DIRECTOR REALTEKS I’m from Realteks in Turkey and this is our first time at Bangladesh Denim Expo. I am responsible for the sales’ and purchasing teams. As a company we are investigating the market by participating in the event, to meet with suppliers and customers and to check the market capabilities. Bangladesh is improving a lot. I have been in the denim business for the last 25 years and for the last 10 years focussing on the Bangladesh market. The country is building brands more directly than before and constantly improving, with European & Turkish knowhow and will grow in importance as a global production hub, which is why we are happy being at the Expo. It is a pleasure to be a participant and thanks for organizing the event!

I am extremely happy, very proud and excited to be attending Bangladesh Denim Expo. I am also proud that Bangladesh has now some of the largest denim mills. In 1994 Beximco put up the first denim mill in Bangladesh and today everywhere I go, world class denim is being produced in the country. I think the Expo is terrific to showcase the progress that Bangladesh has made and bring together fabric, machinery and garment suppliers from around the world. The Expo offers a great learning experience and, even today, I have learnt a lot! So, my best wishes. I am very proud of Mostafiz for making this possible, and I hope that, inshallah, the Expo will continue to grow.

Our especially curated trend zone area focussed on highlights from exhibitors at the event that reflected the theme of CIRCULARITY. Visitors to the area were particularly interested in the Re-Create, Re-Use and Re-Cycle areas of the display, along with the many examples of PP Free, eco-friendly finishing and dyeing techniques, proving that the denim industry can develop on trend product and evolve in a sustainable, circular manner!
