30 January 2023

Over 8,000 brands and retailers (including sourcing heads, buying teams and key decision makers) operating across geographical locations, 200-plus apparel and textile makers from the manufacturing strongholds of Asia, attractive line-up of seminars, vendor sessions, ideative talks, bridging sessions, fireside chats, networking opportunities and hardcore business generation, Apparel Sourcing Week 2032 had it all.

No wonder, ASW is considered Asia’s most exciting and most awaited souring event today.

As we gear up to present the third edition of ASW 2023, expected to set new benchmarks in scale, magnitude and excellence, we cannot help but reminisce about the various terms used by the stakeholders to define ASW. 

Extraordinary networking opportunities; unique mix of manufacturers and products; all-encompassing knowledge platforms; brilliant planning; flawless execution are just a few to mention!

“In today’s context, when everything is changing very fast, the forum of ASW is a great place to facilitate meaningful dialogue,” felt Neetu Jotwani, SVP, House of brands, Myntra, which was echoed equally strongly by Suparna Malhotra, Vice President of the Newtimes Group of Companies.

Said Faheem Ahamed, MD of Welstand Apparel, Dhaka: “I am impressed with ASW ’22. Our collection was highly appreciated by the visitors and we were able to book orders during the event. For us, ASW proved quite fruitful,” even as the Managing Director of Pacific Jeans (top denim jeans manufacturer from Chittagong, Bangladesh) Syed Tanvir, observed, “We have assured the good growth of denim in India. One of the leading Indian brands discussed to start sourcing from us for the upcoming season. We look forward to expanding our business into the Indian Market.”

“It was nice to come across so many different kinds of manufacturers,” opined Dhanasekeran. RAssistant Buying Manager of Dubai-based Lifestyle International Pvt. Ltd.Landmark Group.

To put it in a sentence, ASW ’22 ticked all the boxes that one could perceive off, making it one-of-its-kind platform that not only facilitated business, but also addressed every conceivable issue pertaining to manufacturing, fashion and retail.

Scheduled to be held on 21-22 July 2023 in the garden city of Bengaluru and leveraging upon the ‘NOKI’ concept, centring the four pillars of Networking, Opportunity, Knowledge and Inspiration, the third edition of Asia’s most-awaited sourcing extravaganza, promises to scale things up to make it the most extensive and interactive till date.

“ASW is creating newer opportunities for the world’s biggest brands to do business and meet new partners, ensuring the sharpest innovators hit the stage,” underlined Mayank Mohindra, the proud CEO of ASW after the successful conclusion of the second edition of the event even as he promised to be back with the next edition and more such endeavours to help the industry scale new heights.
