An international exposition of textile and backward linkage industries will kick off in Dhaka next week to help entrepreneurs in global sourcing after a two-year gap amid Covid-19 pandemic.

CEMS-Global is organising four-day exhibition styled “Textech Bangladesh International Expo” for the 21st time in participation of 450 local and foreign companies, according to organisers briefed at Economic Reporters Forum (ERF) office in Dhaka on Tuesday.

Textile and Jute Minister Golam Dastagir Gazi is scheduled to inaugurate the exposition at International Convention City Bashundhara (ICCB) in Dhaka on August 31.

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) President Farukh Hassan and BKMEA Executive President Mohammad Hatem is expected to be present at special guest on the occasion.

"We are proud to announce that the three comprehensive international exhibitions serving the entire textile and garment industry after a two-year gap amid coronavirus pandemic,” said Meherun N Islam, managing director of CEMS Global.

CEMS Global Executive Director Tanveer Qamrul Islam, International Marketing Director Abhishek Das and Strategic Planner Ashraful Islam were also present at the press conference.

Around 280 companies with over 500 booths will be representing 12 countries in the exhibition.

It will be a one-stop platform to showcase the latest developments and emerging technology for the industry.

The exhibitors said that the increasing cost of air tickets leads a challenging situation in hosting the event this year.

Meherun further said the Textech Bangladesh could not be organised in 2020 due to the pandemic situation as the exhibition events worldwide suffered greatly.

The Textech Bangladesh, however, organised a virtual edition of the event in 2021 to help local companies in global sourcing issues.

Executive Director Tanveer Qamrul Islam said the exhibition will be held this year in

hybrid mode to help the buyers and service providers join the event.

“There will be 500 booths including hybrid facilities for business-to-business meeting. So, there will no gap in entrepreneurs-service provider match making,” he said.

Considering the challenging time in international transportation, there will be majority participation from Indian businesses in this edition of the expo.

“Of 280 international participants, some 180 will come from India.  With over 60 hybrid booths, the businesses will get changed for meeting with international sourcing platforms,” said Abhishek Das, International Marketing Director at CEMS.

The TexTech exhibition is featured with 18th Dhaka International Yarn and Fabric Show and DyeChem Bangladesh International Expo for 40th edition of its kind.
