With around 200+ suppliers from over 12+ countries/regions and more than 100 companies who will be presenting their latest products in textiles INTEX South Asia is geared for another edition in November this year. The show is scheduled at BMICH, Colombo, from 13-15 November 2019.
The USP of the show will be separate Indian textile pavilions organised by FIEO, TEXPROCIL and CHEMEXCIL. Also, on display will be smart Textiles by Korean, Taiwanese and Indonesian companies. Cotton USA is the innovation Partner of the event.
The show has got a good response over the years and is also endorsed and supported by major industry associations, chambers of commerce and government agencies from Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Taiwan, Malaysia, and other countries.
“With the growth of textile dyes and chemicals imports to Sri Lanka, Indian companies under this zone would find it fruitful to connect with their Sri Lankan counterparts to explore business opportunities.”
Some of the products on display includes yarns, apparel fabrics, denim fabrics, chemicals, clothing accessories and allied services. The Indian Pavilions at Intex South Asia will be organised by The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL) and Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) and Basic Chemicals, Cosmetics & Dyes Export Promotion Council (CHEMEXCIL) under Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India.

This year, the show will be introducing “Indian Textile Dyes & Chemicals Zone” which would be represented by leading textile chemicals, dyes intermediates, pigments and auxiliaries companies.
With the growth of textile dyes and chemicals imports to Sri Lanka, Indian companies under this zone would find it fruitful to connect with their Sri Lankan counterparts to explore business opportunities.
