The hall, located on the ground floor of Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC), will be used to highlight high-end overseas apparel fabrics and accessories brands.
Inspired by prosperous economic outlook and competitive labour force of Bangladesh, many international brands will come to attend the fair to develop a solid presence and tap better business opportunities in the country.

DTG is renowned for its high turnout of international exhibitors and trade visitors. It is widely seen as a must-visit, leading textile and garment machinery fair in Bangladesh. Bangladesh enjoys duty-free exports to the EU under the most privileged ‘Everything but Arms (EBA)’ trade scheme, and gains a lot of support from its global trade partners. Among them, Germany, now the single largest export outlet for Bangladesh-made garments next to the US, has promised to help the country’s garment industry double its export volume. With these robust advantages, the Asian country is emerging as a new garment manufacturing hub in Asia.
