When the world was witnessing one of most devastating uncertainties ever experienced, owing to the global pandemic of COVID-19, the hope of life coming back to normal kept our spirits alive. Soon emerged the ‘new normal’, and everyone began living with the uncertainties, fighting the battle one day at a time!

Technology played a crucial role in keeping us all together during the critical times. Both personally and professionally. And the Apparel Sourcing Week (ASW) team has not only accepted this reality, but also played its part well in its endeavour towards keeping the industry active and in constant touch not only at a physical space, but digitally too!

Expanding the scope of ASW beyond the physical exhibition that found great success as ASW19, the team introduced ASW Marketplace – a great digital option for suppliers and buyers to remain connected throughout the year, 24x7.

A business-networking platform, ASW Marketplace aims to bring together manufacturers and buyers of apparel, fabrics and accessories on a single platform for discussion as and when required. Buying and selling are no longer seasonal practices. Retailers need products regularly, and waiting for exhibitions to search partners is no longer the only option. Now, for a buyer, meeting new suppliers, as and when required from across South Asia, is just a click away!

On that note, let’s take a look at some of the salient features offered by ASW Marketplace –
