GOTS Bangladesh seminar focuses on organic textiles
GOTS Bangladesh Seminar 2019, focussing on issues relevant to the organic textile industry, was held on September 8, 2019, at the International Convention City Bashundhara (ICCB), Dhaka, Bangladesh. The theme for the seminar was ‘Connecting for Success’. Around 250-300 senior colleagues from 150 different industry organisations will attend the event.
Delegates had the chance to learn about best practices and knowhow related to the biggest opportunities – and challenges – to help transform their supply chains. The seminar served as a great platform to connect with supply chain partners and relevant service providers for sustainable textile business, according to a press release on the show.
For the first time, the GOTS seminar included a fun quiz that tested the participants’ grasping of topics discussed at the seminar. The seminar consisted of four sessions. Sustainable Retail talked about recent trends, priorities, and experience of conscious buyers. GOTS Technical Criteria and its Implementation included latest criteria and experiences from implementation partners for technical aspects of the standard.
