Textile technology expo begins today
An annual international exhibition on textile and apparel technology, machinery and allied services -- 13th Textech Bangladesh-2012 International Expo -- begins at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the capital today.
CEMS-Global, USA-Conference and Exhibition Management Services Ltd in association with CEMS Bangladesh are organising the expo.
GM Quader, commerce minister, is scheduled to open the show that aims to introduce local stakeholders of readymade garment and knitwear sectors with the latest development and present global trend of the industries.
Besides, two exhibitions -- 12th Dye+Chem Bangladesh-2012 International Expo' and sixth Dhaka International Yarn and Fabric Show-2012' -- would be held alongside with the Textech.
Industry insiders said the expo would not only create unique opportunity for Bangladeshi garment and knitwear exporters to display the aspects of recent developments but also shed light on its progress to the global textile and garment community.
The Textech will bring many decision makers and qualified buyers under one roof in resulting in business transactions worth millions of dollars.
Since its inception in 1992, the CEMS Global organises 30 exhibitions on trade and economy every year.
Nearly 450 exhibitors from 22 countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, China, India, Pakistan and Japan, will participate in the exhibitions, organisers said.
The exhibitions will remain open from 10.30 am to 7.30 pm every day.
