Denimsandjeans will be held in Japan, March 4 to 5, 2020, Vietnam, May 28 to 29, 2020, and India, July 8 to 9, 2020.
Organisers are expecting the shows to be bigger and better. Vietnam has been becoming one of the most favorable and important sourcing destinations, especially for US and EU buyers. Vietnam has signed a free trade agreement with Europe, which will create much interest from buyers in the EU. A large number of garment exporters are expected to join the Denimsandjeans shows in 2020 as the event has gained more traction. The industry has embraced these shows as they are focused and niche. The prime attraction of these shows has been the visits of decision-makers from domestic as well as international brands and the presence of almost all who matter in the industry. The knowledge sessions by international experts on important issues also create great interest among professionals who seek to upgrade their knowledge.
Vietnam has currently about 6,000 garment related companies that employ 2.5 million people. As far as India is concerned, denim has been one of the apparel segments that have seen maximum growth in the last decade. In the last 10 years, the growth has been over 10 per cent a year, making the country the second largest consumer of denim after China. Though there has been a correction of late, innovative products still command a premium in the Indian market.
