Networking opportunities will be bigger and better at ASW 2020

It’s been 7 months since Apparel Sourcing Week (ASW) 2019 concluded, and while the event is still being talked about for creating ample business opportunities for all the 30 top manufacturers who were a part of the show, another significant highlight of the show has been the networking activities.
ASW ’19’s multiple networking platforms helped bring together the decision makers from Indian and International retail industry to dine and wine with some of the best names among Asian manufacturers. There were 20 top CEOs and over 100 sourcing professionals, who attended the exclusive networking dinner at the event early this year. ASW 2020 is going to be no different! In fact, the second edition is set to be bigger, better and livelier.
While there will be 2 Networking Dinners at ASW 2020 to optimise the underlying business opportunities, there will be 3 Lunches added as well in the upcoming show to strengthen better liaisons. It is well accepted that best of the business happens when people meet informally. Yes, there is a better understanding and more transparency when business persons meet while dining. This has proved to have reaped rich dividends in the past. Apparel Sourcing Week 2020 therefore leaves no stones unturned in its endeavour to maximise the benefits that its manufacturers and retailers can derive from this one-of-a-kind sourcing platform.
Besides, ASW ’20is also organising a Golf Tournament this time, which would be stimulating and motivating for the participants, ensuring that they make the most of it, unwinding with their peers and colleagues. The idea is to play golf to develop new acquaintances and explore better business deals not discovered before.
ASW 2020 promises a plethora of networking options for its enthusiastic participants. Post-Event Retail Tour is another networking event included in this larger second edition, wherein the business representatives and officials will be taken on a retail tour to enable them to have a brief understanding of the Indian retail market, whether related to premium fashion, fast fashion or local retail market.
What else! The show organisers have also incorporated a Wine Tasting Tour to Vineyard, this time which gives an opportunity to enjoy the tour, tastings and get-together. This innovative concept keeps pace with the country’s booming wine tourism.
Not to forget The Trend Shows where one can enjoy the best of fashion collections showcased by models, it will also simultaneously create unlimited business opportunities as well as open the doors to become a market leader. The 3-day mega event is not behind in even incorporating Yoga and Meditation Classes on all days for de-stressing.
The upcoming edition of ASW to be held in February 2020 will have around 80 compliant manufacturers from Asia showcasing their latest collections at the premier show in a diverse range of products. Apart from the garment manufacturers, 50 manufacturers/suppliers of fabrics and accessories, will also display their latest collections for the visitors and exhibitors to visualize and plan future assortments.
So come and be a part of ASW 2020 this coming February at Sheraton Grand, Bengaluru and contribute to make it a high-end forum where there is an intelligent exchange of valuable ideas and knowledge, besides the scope to get a comprehensive insight into industry’s best practices, information, development, and most importantly, get immense options for new business negotiations and deals.
The race has started to be at ASW 2020. Be there before you lose out!
