|After the grand success of Apparel Sourcing Week 2019, Apparel Resources is geared up to host the next edition of the much-awaited sourcing event in February 2020, in India’s Silicon Valley and business hub, Bengaluru. And this time around, the venue is the iconic Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Center!|
|Located within 40 kilometres of the Kempegowda International Airport with easy accessibility, this ultra-modern five star luxury hotel nestles in one of the most sought-after locations of the garden city, Whitefield, which on one hand is very close to major corporations, business and shopping hot-spots like Indira Nagar, Phoenix and VR Mall, while on the other hand, it has a lot to offer to unwind after a hectic day of business meetings, be it the host of gardens and recreation facilities nearby or the famous places of tourist interests like Bangalore Palace, Lal Bagh Botanical Garden, Bangalore Race Course, Karnataka Golf Association and Bangalore Golf Club.|
|Spread on an open, wide location, the 8-storey hotel offers 61,443 sq. ft. of meeting space and a wide array of amenities for the guests including delicious international dining at multiple restaurants, a refreshing pool and a 24-hour fitness center to treat one at the hotel's superb spa. Sheraton Grand’s expansive conference and convention center is Bengaluru’s largest premium meeting destination with comprehensive audio-visual technology, customised catering and a team of experts for meeting and event planners to take care of all the business needs.|
|Home to India’s majority of software professionals and corporate honchos, Bengaluru is also one of those few cities in the country where all major international and domestic brands/retailers/labels have their widespread presence to cash in on the business opportunities emerging from the ever-increasing spending power of Bengaluru’s upwardly mobile population that are on the lookout to splurge on fashionable clothing, accessories and lifestyle products.|
|Expectedly so, all of these brands and retailers have their sourcing/liaison offices in Bengaluru. Apparel Sourcing Week thus gives you an unique opportunity to meet and interact with all these buying entities under one roof and clinch a business deal to gain that elusive footstep in the burgeoning fashion retail sector of India and expand your business base here.|
|To be held on 20-21-22 February 2020, ASW will have onboard more than 100 compliant manufacturers from Asia showcasing their latest collections at the premier show in a diverse range of products- Ladieswear, Suits, Lingerie, Athleisure, Kidswear, Outerwear, Denims, Jackets, Swimwear, etc., in line with the vision to develop Apparel Sourcing Week as a Go-To Sourcing Platform for all retailers and brands looking for premium manufacturers from around the world.|
|This time around, 50 manufacturers/suppliers of fabrics and accessories will also display their latest collections for the visitors and exhibitors to visualise and plan future assortments.|
|Add to that the much-awaited networking opportunities through multiple networking platforms to bring together the decision makers from the Indian and international retail industry with the top manufacturers from Asia. That’s not all, ASW 2020 like its previous edition, will also have 6 seminars, 6 workshops and 4 open house discussions, focusing on knowledge dissemination through stimulating debates and thought-provoking forums, encapsulating new and current topics and bigger panel of experts.|
|Overall, ASW ’20 will be much more extensive and interactive that would provide an opportune time and place to meet and negotiate deals with not only the decision makers of Indian retailers and brands but also the international retailers and brands.|
