Intex South Asia, the international textiles sourcing show for fibers, yarns, fabrics, trims and more for the apparel industry, was held from 16–18 June 2022, at the International Convention City Bashundhara, Dhaka.

Today, Bangladesh is considered a trusted sourcing partner across the world due to its perseverance in maintaining supplies even during difficult times. With the increase in purchase orders in 2021, many entrepreneurs have made new investments to cope with the rise in demand by increasing factory capacity. These capacity building measures have in turn, seen an increase in demand for raw materials and Intex South Asia – through its international sourcing platform – aims to fulfil these industry demands.

Biggest Indian participation ever

The show saw the participation of more than 120 companies from India, Bangladesh, Korea, China, Thailand, Singapore, UAE, Italy, USA etc., who showcased their latest offerings for the Bangladesh textile and apparel industry. Arise Integrated Industrial Platforms (ARISE IIP) was Africa Investment Partner and MGH Singapore was the Supply Chain, Logistics & Express partner of Intex South Asia Bangladesh.

Keeping in mind Bangladesh’s huge demand for innovative and trendy textiles, country pavilions from India, Bangladesh, China, Korea and Thailand were formed at the show. This year, the India Pavilion saw the biggest ever participation in Bangladesh. More than 75 Indian companies joined the exhibition to showcase their latest collections of Cotton and MMF textiles (fibers, yarns and fabrics) for export as well as domestic markets and connected with potential buyers from Bangladesh and other international markets that visited this show over 3 days.

The hybrid textile showcase from China, Thailand and Korea received good response from the visitors where buyers previewed the innovative and trendy textiles and made enquiries for their interested products as well as showed interest to organise B2B meetings after the show. In all 329 enquiries were generated at the show.
