‘AISEX 2016’ opens its doors at the BMICH to bring all suppliers and service organisations under one roof. The exhibition will focus on a wide range of textile machinery, accessories and services from many parts of the world.
AISEX aims to sharpen the manufacturers’ hunger for technological innovations in the apparel industry and we hope to provide the garment industry with the complete solutions necessary to forge ahead.
AISEX 2016 will be held for three consecutive days from June 9 – 11, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., at the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Memorial Exhibition Centre (SBMEC).
The event is organised by Lanka Exhibition & Conference Services (Pvt.) Ltd (LECS) and supported and endorsed by the Sri Lanka Apparel Institute (SLAI), Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF), Industry and Commerce Ministry, Sri Lanka Institute of Textile and Apparel (SLITA) and National Chamber of Exporters (NCE).
In an industry where productivity is the key to success; the impact of new innovations and inventions play a vital role in determining the success of the manufacturer. AISEX will encourage suppliers and service organisations to showcase their latest products for the apparel manufacturer. The networking that is inevitable to take place during this exhibition will also help build global relationships between such parties.
The exhibition will generate new opportunities closer to home, within the South Asian region. There are emerging opportunities in regional markets and not just in the EU and the US. The domestic markets in the region are growing and there is an opportunity for local brands to target regional markets, like India.
AISEX 2016 will create opportunities for suppliers, manufacturers and services related to the apparel industry to display their latest range and developments.
The organisers have revived AISEX after a lapse of seven years, mainly due to the fact of the recent visit by the EU delegation and the prospect of GSP Plus. The industry is seeing a rapid growth in terms of production. Sri Lanka is still considered as a favourite sourcing destination due to its best practices and ethical manufacturing (garment without guilt).
