“The success of Intex South Asia 2017 propels South Asia’s largest textile sourcing show to secure more exhibit space at the grand BMICH to accommodate the global apparel brands, retailers, sourcing and buying offices, apparel manufacturers, fashion designers and labels and industry experts in attendance,” organisers report.

“Three years of successful editions of Intex South Asia exhibition have created a positive buzz in the industry as a whole – from sourcing and design teams to manufacturers and importers. With a growing industry renewing global interest for quality and ethical products, increased international buyer traffic and order writing has set the stage for a successful fourth edition of Intex South Asia on a larger scale than before.”

Intex South Asia debuted in 2015 and has grown significantly over the last three editions. It has shown a 46% rise in number of exhibitors and a 67% growth in international buyers with 200 exhibitors from 15 countries and over 3,000 buyers from 21 countries participating in 2017.
