Apparel Resources in its commitment to provide an engaging platform for interaction and networking has made a foray into sports with the ‘Golf Day’ initiative. The first event held in Dhaka earlier this month attracted many industry golfers and some celebrity golfers too! Buoyant after the positive and enthusiastic response, the initiative is all set to debut in India soon. The brainchild of Mayank Mohindra, Director, Apparel Resources and a passionate golfer himself, ‘Golf Day’ has been designed for the industry where stalwarts can enjoy a day of interaction and networking while celebrating the corporate game of golf, away from the shop floor and meeting rooms, among the greens of the golf course. 

Many popular buyers, exporters and accessory/technology providers from the Bangladesh RMG sector came together for the first time ever in such a sportingcum-networking event.

Also adding a celebrity touch to the event were Heath Streak, Ex-Zimbabwean cricketer and Ruwan Kalpage, Ex-Sri Lankan cricketer, both avid golfers from BD Cricket Board, who enthusiastically enjoyed a game of golf with other participants and stayed on till the end.
