BSL (Buyers & Sourcing Leaders Association) is all geared up to organise one of the biggest accessories and Man- Made Fibers shows in India.
The association is connected to more than 250 buying and sourcing organisations and is fully prepared to serve the industry with opportunities that will not take the companies to newer heights, but will also help India as an industry to scale up in terms of its product, innovation, business and sourcing.
The exhibition scheduled from 17-18 December at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi will have a number of seminars, discussion forum, b2b meets, workshops from all segments of textile and apparel industry.
“The focus of the show is also to bring the best in MMF segment as the world permanently needs MMF textiles and clothing materials. Till now only about 20% of the total textile and apparel exports comprises MMF products from India and there is a big gap which needs to be filled,” informed Raman Dutta, General Secretary, BSL.
The event is being supported by various associations like AEPC, CMAI, CITI, EPCH, TEA, ITF, TEXPROCIL, SRTEPC, international retailers association and global chamber representation from countries like US, EU, Japan, Germany, Australia, etc.
The association also informed that Textile Minister Shri Piyush Goel will inaugurate the show and CM’s of many other states of India will join the event.
The exhibition organised by BSL is a part of its vision to increase exports of MMF products from India by aligning manufacturers and buyers of these fibres on a common platform and help them create a good market in the coming times.
The government of India is already very aggressive about the growth in MMF segment and had started PLI Scheme for MMF a few months back in which many well- known garment export companies have got themselves enrolled.
Another focal area of the exhibition is Accessories segment, interestingly, India imports trims worth more than Rs 18000 cr from China annually. The apparel manufacturers have been facing several challenges for many years as the cost of raw material and high lead times have been the biggest challenge. The issue needs to be addressed more effectively with overseas clients and the upcoming exhibition is definitely an answer to this challenge.
BSL was formed to bring the thinking tanks from the buying side who have the expertise, experience and are well versed with the intricacies of the apparel and textile sector for many years. The association has planned a series of exhibitions, conferences, webinars and seminars for the upliftment of the sector.
The USP of the association is that it is being run by leaders from the buying side who very know where the sourcing will move in coming times and with their expertise and knowledge they are creating a successful roadmap for growth of industry and its peers.
