The 5th edition of the highly successful Intex South Asia in Sri Lanka will take place at BMICH, Colombo, from 13-15 November. This year, more than 200+ leading suppliers from 12 countries and region will participate to promote their business and explore new business opportunities in South Asia and other international markets. 

In 2019, Intex South Asia brings to Colombo for the first time, Cotton Council International (CCI), also known as Cotton USA, which is the export promotion arm of the National Cotton Council of America (NCC). Cotton USA, as our Innovation Partner, will bring you the latest in research, highlighting new ideas in technology, fashion, blends, processes, etc. 

Also presenting for the first time in Intex South Asia, ‘Fashion for Good’ will give insights on Trends and Technological Textile Innovations, driving sustainability in the Textile Value Chain and its South Asia program, while the ‘Better Cotton Initiative’, as our Sustainability Partner, will highlight ‘Sustainability in Textiles’ for better understanding of environmental, social and economic sustainability.  The evolution of its offerings to the industry by Intex South Asia is echoed by JAAF Chairman Sharad Amalean who said: “Sri Lanka is proud to host Intex. Year-on-year, we have seen Intex up the game and today, we have exhibitors from different parts of the world in this region exhibiting textile fabrics, yarns and accessories.” 

He further stated: “Whilst agility, flexibility and digital solutions have become the crucial drivers of success, partnerships and relationships form the core. Intex South Asia provides an excellent forum for all stakeholders of the industry from Sri Lanka and overseas to build and develop these relationships.”

This year, alongside the exhibition, The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council of India (TEXPROCIL) is also organising a trade delegation which is led by Premier Mills/Premier Fine Linens Chairman and Managing Director Dr. K.V. Srinivasan. He mentioned that: “The Intex South Asia provides a robust platform for untapped South Asian intra-regional trade, by delivering access to industry developments, networking opportunities and strategic initiatives with other global suppliers from across South Asia and the world to help expand industry and business, in one location, under one roof. We are confident that the exclusive networking platform provided by Intex South Asia 2019 will be extremely useful for importers, wholesalers and agents.” TEXPROCIL would be forming Indian Textiles Pavilion for the third time in a row.

Looking forward to the upcoming exhibition, organiser and Worldex India Director Arti Bhagat said: “With our excellent mix of international and regional exhibitors, Intex South Asia is the perfect platform for textile and apparel SMEs keen to do business internationally. The Expo will create powerful opportunities to increase exports of textile and clothing products to EU and non-EU markets.” 

Intex South Asia is the perfect platform to take the industry forward and we take this opportunity to invite you to visit the show with your sourcing, design and merchandising team and explore new business opportunities at the region’s biggest and most successful sourcing show for the textiles and apparel industry.
