GOTS Bangladesh Seminar 2019 (GBDS19) shall be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh on 8th September 2019.
The theme of this year´s seminar is ‘Connecting for Success’. In 2018, Bangladesh reached second position (after India) in terms of GOTS certified facilities in the country. This growth trend showcases the commitment of the Bangladeshi textile industry to not only use organic fibres, but also to environmental and social compliances. Fire and Building Safety are included in GOTS criteria and the country has made significant progress in all these areas.
To sustain this growth, it is important that the industry is strongly connected with other stakeholders in the organic textile value chain. While connections within the country are important; active engagement with international stakeholders including suppliers and buyers are vital to the success of the industry.
GOTS Bangladesh Seminar 2019 serves to bring together the key players. Speakers shall include representatives from brands, exporters, certifiers, chemical industry, and other significant stakeholders.
The Seminar Agenda includes sessions on brands’ perspective, market updates, technical compliance, risk assessment and so on. Speakers from Bangladesh and other countries share their experiences in the field of sustainable textiles. For speaking opportunities, please contact the Seminar Coordinator Sumit Gupta.

The seminar will be held at the International Convention Centre Bashundhra (ICCB), Dhaka. Located in a well-connected area with ample parking space. At the end of the seminar, a shuttle bus will be available to bring the participants to the main highway, which has better connectivity to public transport.
