Twenty six Bangladeshi garment makers are going to Paris to exhibit their apparel products at Texworld-Apparel Sourcing, one of the leading exhibitions for fabrics and apparel sourcing.
This year's four-day event will start on September 18.
Bangladeshi companies had attended the show over 10 times earlier.
“Bangladesh's participation at Texworld–Apparel Sourcing has enhanced the quality of the fair,” Michael Sherpe, managing director of Messe Frankfurt, France, said in a statement.
“Bangladesh as the second largest garment exporter in the world is an important country for us.”
"Apparel Sourcing is the biggest sourcing fair in France; and we have a number of country pavilions for Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Vietnam, China, Ethiopia and many others,” said Omer Salahuddin, head of Messe Frankfurt Bangladesh.
“No other fair can provide buyers with such a wide variety of sourcing countries. Buyers are also coming from the UK and other European countries,” Salahuddin said.
In 2016, over 1,530 exhibitors from 110 countries, including the UK, France, Turkey, Spain, Italy and Germany, take part in the fair.
The Export Promotion Bureau of Bangladesh will again join the show by occupying a country pavilion for the fifth time.
Zaber & Zubair of Bangladesh is amongst the top 20 exhibitors at the fair and has been chosen to exhibit their products in the special "Elite Zone".
Garment makers from the Netherlands, Turkey and Portugal will also be there at the show.
