The 7th Bangladesh International Garment and Textile Machinery Expo (BIGTEX) will begin on Thursday at the International Convention City Bashundhara in Dhaka.

Industry Minister, Nurul Majid Mahmud Humayun, MP is expected to inaugurate the expo.

RedCarpet Global Limited, the organizer of the expo, disclosed details at a press conference on Sunday in the capital city.

The organizers announced their plan to host five international exhibitions concurrently at the same venue, all geared towards the Textile, Garment, and Apparel industry. These exhibitions include the Bangladesh International Fabric and Yarn Expo, Bangladesh International Printing, Packaging, and Signage Expo, Bangladesh International Dyes, Pigments, and Chemicals Expo, 3P Expo, and Bangladesh International Paper, Printing, and Packaging Expo.

The primary objective of these exhibitions is to serve as a platform for the industry, showcasing cutting-edge machinery, technologies, dyes, chemicals, yarns, and fabrics. These products will be on display, featuring contributions from global manufacturers and suppliers, making these vital resources accessible to the Bangladeshi industry.

Moreover, the expos will facilitate the exchange of knowledge by providing experts, engineers, and technicians in the textile sector with practical exposure to the latest technological advancements.

The expo will have almost 160 stalls from 12 countries including Asia and Europe.

Furthermore, participants in the exhibitions will have the chance to establish valuable business contacts, potentially leading to subsequent negotiations and partnerships.

The exhibitions have garnered support from notable industry organizations, with the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association and the Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association serving as associate partners. The Image Group is the powered-by partner for the printing expo.
