FE Report

A total of 21 Bangladeshi companies, including apparel and leather units, will participate in a four-day fair in Paris beginning on September 17.

The Leather World Paris will feature for the first time in the Texworld/Apparel Sourcing Paris this year.

Three Bangladeshi leather goods makers would showcase their products in the expo, said Messe Frankfurt, organiser of the fair, in a statement issued on Saturday.

The Texworld/Apparel Sourcing Paris is one of the best options for Bangladesh's ready-made garment (RMG) sector to improve their market share not just in France but also all over Europe.

"The show is considered as one of the most effective apparel sourcing exhibitions in Europe for Bangladeshi exporters as a good number of buyers always visit the stalls," the statement said.

The Leather World Paris will feature tannery and finished leather goods ranging from leather garments to accessories like bags, shoes and other fashion products.

"Over the years a large number of leather brands have been requesting a section of leather inside the show," the organiser explained.

Of the 21 participants, nine are knitwear, five denim and four fabric manufacturers.

There will be a national pavilion under the banner of the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) at the Texworld/Apparel Sourcing Paris.

The next Texworld/Apparel Sourcing will be held from February 11-14, 2019.

In September 2017, a total of 1,660 exhibitors participated in the Texworld/Apparel Sourcing.

The last edition of the expo recorded 14,581 visitors from 108 countries. The visitors came from all over Europe with a large number of buyers from the UK, France, Turkey, Spain, Italy and Germany.
