15 June 2023

Scheduled to be held on 20th and 21st July in Bengaluru this year, the third edition of Apparel Sourcing Week (ASW 2023) is going to have a very strong representation from Bangladesh once again.

As we inch closer to the sub-continent’s most awaited sourcing extravaganza, more and more garment makers from the second biggest apparel exporting country globally are signing up to be a part of ASW 2023.

By the time the registration window for participating in ASW 2023 closes, we are sure a substantial number of suppliers (big, small and medium) from Bangladesh will make their presence felt strongly much to the delight of a host of retailers, brands and buyers’ bodies (that would assemble under one roof this July at ASW), with their rich and all-encompassing product ensemble.

Here a few names from Bangladesh, who have come onboard lately to be a part of ASW:
