The Apparel Industry Suppliers Exhibition (AISEX) is an exhibition which aims to bring all suppliers and service organisations under one roof. The exhibition focuses on a wide range of textile machinery, accessories and services from many parts of the world.
AISEX 2016 will take place from 9-11 June at the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Memorial Exhibition Center (SBMEC). The event is organised by Lanka Exhibition & Conference Services Ltd. (LECS) and supported and endorsed by the Sri Lanka Apparel Institute (SLAI) and the Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF)
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.
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 (garments without guilt).
