December 22, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations): From December 15th to 25th Science City Auditorium grounds, Kolkata will be busy welcoming some of the most recognizable names in the business fraternity with the 10th India International Mega Trade Fair kicking off amidst much fan fare.
The guests of honor, Mr. Partho Chaterjee, (West Bengal State Commerce and Industry Minister) and the deputy high commissioner of Bangladesh, Md. Mustafizur Rahman, saw the IIMTF through its inaugural program, in the presence of the representatives from the participating countries - Pakistan, Turkey, Egypt, Kenya, Ghana and Myanmar, to name a few. The country in focus is Pakistan, while Bangladesh will partner the event with India.
Supposedly the largest trade fair of its kind in Asia, the IIMTF, Kolkata, will feature separate air conditioned stands with displays from various industrial segments such as Electronics & Electricals, Furniture, Lifestyle, Food & Beverages, home décor & home appliances and much more.
Realizing the importance of homemakers and kids in influencing buying decisions, steps have also been taken to draw them in huge numbers and keep them entertained throughout. A Mega Chef Contest and a Mega Drawing Competition is expected to serve this purpose satisfactorily. To be stretched across two weekends, the India International Mega Trade Fair, Kolkata, is also expecting to pull in the working professionals, who would otherwise find it extremely difficult to attend the fair.
Here is a picture gallery from the Trade Fair.
