Greenable Denimsandjeans – 2 Days Of Business, Networking and Fun !
Denimsandjeans is happy to announce the launch of the fourth edition of Denimsandjeans Indian show in Bangalore, at Lalit Ashok hotel on June 8-9 , after a gap of 3 years ! The shows enter the schedule of the year when the pandemic is considered in control. Most of the population is already vaccinated with double doses. The pandemic being active for three years has been impacting numerous domains of lifestyle. Lifestyle of people changed during these years and a mix of offline and online work is now the norm . Everything that affects lifestyle changes the business. The denim industry too has felt the effect of such changes in terms of an enhanced focus on eco friendliness and comfort. This has been boosting up the green inputs into brands globally as well as locally and also enabled the supply chain to create clothing which addresses the new comfort needs of the consumers. And hence the theme of the show – GREENABLE – focuses on these two aspects.
The exhibition will be emitting a nostalgic vibe to us as well as the visitors because after quite a time we are meeting physically. We have invited companies which carry global esteem on their shoulders as our exhibitors. Mills, garment producers, wash houses, chemical and fibre companies, and technology companies all will be attending this opportunity to raise the bar for the Denim industry.
The opening ceremony will take place on June 8 at 10:00 at Lalit Ashok Hotel. Opening and keynote address will be done by Dr Naresh Tyagi – Chief Sustainability Officer of Aditya Birla Group.
