|Still 6 more months to go and the excitement is building up at a fast pace for Apparel Sourcing Week (ASW) 2020! While visitor registrations have already begun, exhibitor inquiries are also warming up!
|Having wowed the industry last year with the first edition – ASW 2019, the exhibitors are now keen to be a part of its second edition that is scheduled to be held in the lush Sheraton Grand, Bengaluru from 20 to 22 February 2020.
|And their keenness can be seen to be believed! Some of the biggest names of the apparel sector, which were a part of the first edition, like Epic Group, Standard Group, Pacific Jeans, Bando Designs, Pratibha Syntex, Well Group, Giant Group, Armana and Anowara have confirmed their participation yet again and a lot more are lined up to be a part of the much-talked about show.
|Now that’s enough to indicate that the show is going to bigger and better this time. And why not!
|A lot of efforts are underway – at an exhilarating pace – to get the best of the apparel sector from across India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, China and Sri Lanka and what’s good is the encouraging response that we have been receiving since last few weeks. However, at Apparel Resources, we are determined to bring the best – only the best – of the industry at ASW 2020 and that’s one thing which is surely going to make our second event stand out. The target is to have 100 exhibitors that are hand-picked for their focus on creativity, quality, delivery commitments and compliance to social obligations.
|The exhibitors, who have given their confirmation to be at ASW ’20, have distinctly stated that there cannot be a better place than this to meet and negotiate business deals with the key influencers of Indian retailers and brands. By now, they have realised that this is one place that will not only give them new directions to enhance business, but also guide them on how to make it happen.
|Add to it, the exceptional sourcing platform will provide opportunity to meet the best of foreign retailers and brands, which is a further impetus for the exhibitors to be there at the event. They will be showcasing a wide range of products that include ladieswear, kidswear, denims, formal and casual suits, sportswear, jackets, lingerie, swimwear, sweaters and what not. You name it and you will get it...
|It doesn’t end here! There will be 50 manufacturers and suppliers of fashion fabrics and accessories too in a specially designed section displaying the best of their collections. While there will be a variety of cotton, man-made and sustainable fabrics available in various blends, the accessory makers will be presenting a wide array of laces, buttons, zippers, threads, interlinings and labels – in fact everything that an apparel manufacturer needs to add value to his/her products. Moreover, there will be a special section dedicated to fabrics and accessories.
|With several apparel bigwigs enquiring about the second edition of the sourcing show together with the efforts that the team has been putting in round the clock, we are sure of not only presenting to the industry a bigger sourcing event than ASW 2019, but also a one-of-a-kind sourcing show to have ever been held in India.
|We will be out with more details soon!
