  • Bangladesh’s biggest denim expo takes place 5-6 November

DHAKA - Responsibility is the theme of the 11th Bangladesh Denim Expo which takes place on 5th and 6th November at International Convention City in Bashundhara, Dhaka. The event, now firmly established as one of the world’s leading denim trade shows, runs alongside the Bangladesh Sustainable Apparel Forum.

Bangladesh Denim Expo

Around 100 exhibitors from 11 countries, including host Bangladesh, will participate in this year’s denim expo. Other participating countries are china, Japan, Italy, India, Singapore, Brazil, Spain, Pakistan, Turkey and Germany.

H&M Group is collaborating with Bangladesh Denim Expo for the forthcoming 11th edition of the event and a number of guest speakers will be present from the company, including Pierre Borjesson, head of sustainability, global production. Other guest speakers include Andrew Olah, the founder of Kingpins Denim show, Alice Tonello, R&D director with the Tonello Group, world renowned denim designer, Piero Turk and Jordi Juani, Asia regional director with Jeanologia.

Through a series of product displays, presentations, seminar sessions & panel discussions, the Expo will encourage healthy debate and interaction among exhibitors and visitors to champion a more responsible denim industry. One of these, of course, is sustainability and within this sits the issue of responsibility – an overriding theme of this year’s event. Denim manufacture faces huge challenges with regards its social and environmental responsibility, with production techniques having potentially far-reaching ramifications for the environment as well as people involved in the production process.

However, the industry and its supply chain are making impressive progress on these issues with Bangladesh – now the world’s largest producer of denim – leading the way in terms of addressing some of the sustainability challenges relating to denim production, including excessive use of water and chemicals. Mostafiz Uddin is the organiser of Bangladesh Denim Expo. Uddin has watched with interest the evolution of the denim industry, with each Expo marking continued and gradual progress being made by the more progressive players in the industry.

Uddin says: “The way that business and product development is conducted can have far reaching consequences on the environment, on the people that make the product and the product’s end use & life-span. “It is the duty of all stakeholders in the apparel industry to acknowledge this responsibility and to analyse our business practices, for the benefit of all.” Emphasising the theme of responsibility within Denim Expo is the fact that revenues from the expo support the running and presentation of the Sustainable Apparel Forum.

Sustainable Apparel Forum

The Sustainable Apparel Forum (SAF) is the biggest annual sustainable apparel event in Bangladesh. Bangladesh Apparel Exchange (BAE) along with Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) as co-organiser will jointly carry out the 2nd edition of the SAF on 5th Nov 2019.

Bangladesh has a mission: to fetch its share in the global 130 billion dollars market of smart apparel by 2025. To reach this goal, the country aims to foster modern, innovative, technology-driven apparel manufacturing and to constantly engage in supply chain conversations.

A fitting stage for these conversations was the 2nd Bangladesh Fashionology Summit that took place on day 1 of the Bangladesh Denim Expo – held on 02-03 May 2019 at the International Convention City Bashundhara. This was a platform for thinkers, innovators, experts, educators to share innovative ideas on this edition’s main theme: “Digitalization – the Next Destination”. Sessions were provided to learn more on how innovation, specifically digitalization, fits in the world of the fashion industry.

Further to an increase in cost of production, the industry is even more compelled to focusing on finding added value for products. Here is where the smart clothing market comes in, an opportunity on which a thriving community of thinkers will commit to lead the “current-generation” garment production into the “next-generation” apparel manufacturing by using latest digital technology.

The Summit has also provided a Tech Innovation Zone (Tech Innovators: Trustrace, Shimmy Technologies, Infinited Fiber, Seachange Technologies, Reverse Resource) in collaboration with Fashion For Good, a platform for innovators to meet with the other components of the eco system, and an Exhibition Zone (Exhibitors: Pivot88, Lectra, Sindabad.com, Pacific Associates, Earlycavehuman, Foursource Group GmbH, A2i-Access to Information, GoBlu, Rudholm Group, QuizRR, BRAC, SNV, SR Asia, Swiss Contact) for companies to showcase their latest innovations, paying special attention to information sharing.

BANGLADESH DENIM EXPO plädiert für mehr Einfachheit

Bisher werden Kunden beim Kauf von Textilien meist nur über das Nötigste informiert: Materialzusammensetzung, Pflegehinweise und Herstellungsland. Je mehr Konsumenten aber Wert auf Nachhaltigkeit legen, desto wichtiger werden detaillierte Informationen auch über die Herkunft, Herstellung und Veredelung des jeweiligen Kleidungsstücks. Transparenz über jeden einzelnen Produktionsschritt ist hier von enormer Bedeutung. Dabei sollten die Fakten so einfach, klar und verständlich formuliert sein, dass jeder Käufer weltweit sie sofort versteht.

Bisher werden Kunden beim Kauf von Textilien meist nur über das Nötigste informiert: Materialzusammensetzung, Pflegehinweise und Herstellungsland. Je mehr Konsumenten aber Wert auf Nachhaltigkeit legen, desto wichtiger werden detaillierte Informationen auch über die Herkunft, Herstellung und Veredelung des jeweiligen Kleidungsstücks. Transparenz über jeden einzelnen Produktionsschritt ist hier von enormer Bedeutung. Dabei sollten die Fakten so einfach, klar und verständlich formuliert sein, dass jeder Käufer weltweit sie sofort versteht.

Doch Klarheit nützt nicht nur dem Endkunden. Die 9. BANGLADESH DENIM EXPO möchte unter dem Motto "EINFACHHEIT" vorführen, wie die gesamte Denimbranche davon profitieren kann. Die renommierte Jeansmesse öffnet am 7. und 8. November 2018 in Dhaka wieder ihre Pforte für die globale Jeans Community.

Drei Panel-Diskussionen werden sich dabei unter verschiedenen Schwerpunkten mit dem Thema beschäftigen und den Zuhörern neue Impulse geben:

1. Einfachheit vom Designer zum Endverbraucher - die Zusammenarbeit
Mode ist ein demokratischer Prozess, der nur bedingt planbar ist. Es ist nicht nur wirtschaftlich sinnvoll, wenn der Designer weiß, was der Kunde will, sondern wenn gleichzeitig auch der Informationsbedarf des Kunden befriedigt wird. Es wird die Markenbindung stärken, wenn der Kunde sich verstanden und geschätzt fühlt. Eine einfache Botschaft, die Klarheit und Transparenz schaft, sollte hier das Ziel sein.

2. Einfachheit und Standardisierung in der Bekleidungsindustrie
Einheitliche Standards und Zertifikate für die globale Textilindustrie würden die Abläufe zwischen Hersteller und Abnehmer vereinfachen, beschleunigen und übersichtlicher gestalten. Die Fabriken hätten klare Vorgaben für die Produktion, regionale Besonderheiten würden an Bedeutung verlieren, Menschenrechte und Umweltschutz würden überall gleichermaßen beachtet. Für Anbieter wie Abnehmer bedeuten einheitliche Standards auch, dass sie leichter auswählen könnten, mit welchen Partner sie zusammen arbeiten möchten, und so vorausschauender planen können.

3. Einfachheit in der Herstellung - Innovation, Technologie und optimaler Umgang mit Ressourcen
Der technische Fortschritt verändert laufend die Herstellungsprozesse, um sie zu optimieren - mit dem Ziel Wirtschaftlichkeit, Nachhaltigkeit oder Zukunftsfähigkeit. Daher lohnt es sich für jedes Unternehmen, die eigenen Arbeitsabläufe immer wieder kritisch zu hinterfragen und dahingehend zu überprüfen, ob es nicht inzwischen einfachere Lösungen gibt, die zum gleichen Ziel führen und zugleich Menschen und Natur schützen.
 
Seit ihrer Premiere vor vier Jahren hat sich die BANGLADESH DENIM EXPO zu einer der zentralen Messen für die Denim Community entwickelt und gilt als wichtiger Impuls- und Ideengeber für Innovation und Nachhaltigkeit. Großen Anteil am Erfolg hat dabei sicherlich auch die Tatsache, dass die BANGLADESH DENIM EXPO ihre Aussteller sorgfältig auswählt. Bei 9. Ausgabe im November stellen sich 60 Unternehmen aus aller Welt aus den Bereichen Material- und Materialherstellung, Jeansproduktion, Chemikalien, Zubehör und Technologie vor.

Ohne Gleichberechtigung keine fairen Arbeitsbedingungen

Die BANGLADESH DENIM EXPO ist viel mehr als nur eine Messe. Sie versammelt die Denim-Welt in Bangladesch und inspiriert sie, sich auf Innovationen einzulassen und sich auf Neuland zu wagen.
Ihre 8. Ausgabe steht nun ganz im Zeichen des bedeutenden Themas GLEICHBERECHTIGUNG - in Bezug auf Menschen genauso wie in Bezug auf die gesamte Produktionskette.
 

Die BANGLADESH DENIM EXPO ist viel mehr als nur eine Messe. Sie versammelt die Denim-Welt in Bangladesch und inspiriert sie, sich auf Innovationen einzulassen und sich auf Neuland zu wagen.
Ihre 8. Ausgabe steht nun ganz im Zeichen des bedeutenden Themas GLEICHBERECHTIGUNG - in Bezug auf Menschen genauso wie in Bezug auf die gesamte Produktionskette.
 
Am 9. und 10. Mai wird Bangladesch einmal mehr die Bekleidungswelt zur Bangladesh Denim Expo begrüßen. Die Messe ist einer der wichtigsten Treffpunkte der Denim Industrie und hat einen wegweisenden Ruf, wenn es um die Zukunft der Branche geht.

Die nächste Bangladesh Denim Expo widmet sich dem Thema GLEICHBERECHTIGUNG, u.a. um die Fortschritte zu beleuchten, die Bangladesch im Hinblick auf die Arbeitsbedingungen und den Umgang mit den Mitarbeitern gemacht hat. Aber GLEICHBERECHTIGUNG betrifft nicht nur den einzelnen Menschen, das Thema hat auch wirtschaftliche und politische Dimensionen. Deshalb möchte die Bangladesh Denim Expo die globalen Marken und Händler, Hersteller, Regierungen und Entwicklungspartner mobilisieren, eine gleichberechtigte, weltweite Bekleidungslieferkette zu etablieren.

Die Messe nähert sich dem Thema aus mehreren Richtungen und beleuchtet dabei die verschiedenen Aspekte von GLEICHBERECHTIGUNG und wie sie erreicht werden kann:

  • Gleiche Rechte für Arbeiter und Angestellte, um sicherzustellen, dass sie mit Respekt behandelt werden und ein gutes Verhältnis zu ihrer Arbeit haben.
  • Gleiche Verantwortung für alle Interessensgruppen in der Bekleidungslieferkette, um sicherzustellen, dass die Arbeitsplätze gefahrenfrei sind, sich nachhaltige Arbeitsprozesse durchsetzen, Umweltbewusstsein und Transparenz gewährleistet sind.
  • Gleiche Chancen für alle - unabhängig von ihrem Geschlecht, religiöser Zugehörigkeit oder sexueller Orientierung, für alle sollten die gleichen Chancen gegeben sein, entsprechend ihren individuellen Fähigkeiten.

Geschlechtergleichberechtigung - Männer und Frauen sollten gleich behandelt werden, inklusive gleicher Bezahlung, keine Diskrimierung aufgrund des Geschlechts, keine sexuelle Belästigung, sondern gegenseitiger Respekt, der darauf achtet, dass geschlechtsspezifische Bedürfnisse berücksichtigt werden.

"Die Bangladesh Denim Expo ist ein zentraler Treffpunkt für die Interessensgruppen aus der weltweiten Denim Community geworden", sagt Mostafiz Uddin, der Gründer und Geschäftsführer. "Die Besucher tauschen ihre Ansichten aus und diskutieren die Bedeutung der Themen. Es wäre keine Übertreibung zu sagen, dass die Bangladesh Denim Expo erfolgreich dazu beigetragen hat, die Arbeitsbedingungen zu verbessern, indem sie ein konkretes Bewusstsein dafür geschaffen hat."
 
Die Bangladesh Denim Expo wächst mit jeder Ausgabe. Mehr als 14.000 akkreditierte Besucher werden für die aktuelle Show erwartet, die im International Convention City Bashundhara in Dhaka, Bangladesh, stattfinden wird.
60 Aussteller aus aller Welt haben bereits ihre Teilnahme zugesagt, 44 davon aus dem Ausland, 16 Denim-Unternehmen aus Bangladesch.
Die anstehende Bangladesh Denim Expo wird den Ausstellern und Besuchern eine einzigartige Erfahrung bieten. Sie werden einen Einblick in die Denim Industrie Bangladeschs bekommen, die neusten Trends kennen lernen, die die Branche in den nächsten Jahren prägen werden, und auf den Seminaren und der erweiterten Trendzone ihr Fachwissen erweitern können.

Die Seminare dienen als Plattform, auf der einige der Top-Experten und -Führungskräfte der Branche, aus den erfolgreichsten Firmen und Organisationen der gesamten globalen Lieferkette, ihr Wissen und ihre Visionen mit den Besuchern teilen.

Die Trend Zone stellt den Besuchern die neuesten Trends vor und präsentiert dabei auch die Schlüsseltrends im Bereich Stoff-Finishing und Styling. Sie ist immer ein echtes Highlight der Bangladesch Denim Expo und wird um einen Bereich erweitert, in dem neue Informationen ausgetauscht werden können.

Dies ist der Ansatz der Bangladesh Denim Expo, sich dem Thema GLEICHBERECHTIGUNG anzunähern - Wissen und Inspiration werden mit der ganzen Denimwelt geteilt.
