“In particular, the ready-made garment industry in Bangladesh is changing at a rapid rate, with an unprecedented rate of industrial and technological upgrading taking place. Many factory owners have invested millions in order to ensure they are prepared for the shifting landscape in apparel production, including the move to higher added value products, more sustainably produced clothing and, of course, automation,” say organisers.

“Much of this is under-reported in the West, and this seminal conference will offer a vital opportunity for Bangladesh to open its doors to the outside world and kick-start a much-needed debate about the future direction of the country’s garment sector, which is of huge strategic importance to global garment supply chains.”

The event will feature 25 industry expert speakers who will discuss some of the “most pressing problems” facing manufacturers. The five sessions include digitalisation of the supply chain to cut costs and reduce lead time; transparency in the global supply chain; innovation for the era of the fourth industrial revolution; technology for decent work and environment; and policy dialogue on future skills development.

There will also be a Digital Tech Fashion Runway Show showcasing fashion, innovation and design aesthetic as well as a Tech Innovation Zone for startups to showcase innovation and technologies in the industry. In addition, there will be an exhibition zone.

“The eyes of the world are on Bangladesh right now, and not always for the right reasons,” says Mostafiz Uddin, founder and CEO of the Bangladesh Fashionology Summit.

“With the debate around factory safety and the future of the Bangladesh Accord, what has often been forgotten is that the ready-made garment industry in the country has made huge progress in recent years. Technological upgrading in the garment sector is ongoing, and our country’s garment sector is rightfully taking a lead on these issues.

“At this year’s summit, veteran industry experts from local and global settings will explain solutions to the most pressing problems from the perspective of manufacturing. The ideas and discussions will be brought closer to reality by an exhibition, participated by a diverse range of forward-thinking exhibitors.

“All the key stakeholders of the Bangladesh apparel and textile industry will come together at Bangladesh Fashionology Summit to discuss, show and tell the latest products, technology and innovations that will shape the future of the industry.”
