Windmill Initiative, an in-house effort of Windmill Group, is going to organise a home decor expo in Bangladesh – the first of its kind in our country – titled Home Fest Dhaka 2015. This grand event, supported by BRAC Bank Ltd, is scheduled to take place at International Convention City (ICCB), Gulnoksha, Bashundhara on 6 and 7 November.
Prior to the main event, Home Fest Dhaka has arranged a month-long nationwide interior design competition among young, emerging interior designers and architects to find visually rich design which effectively uses material, space, colour, texture, lighting and graphics. The best design is to be awarded Tk. 300,000. Top designers in 17 categories will also be available in the Home Fest for feedback andbooking. Participants will be judged by a 5-member panel.
So essentially, there are 2 parts of the campaign: the competition followed by an exposition of the works of the winners.
The exhibition will display 17 model rooms divided into 3 types of apartments, showcasing various solutions – lighting, tiles, paint et al – based on different needs. You can even avail such services from the fair at very special rates.
The main partners are Aarong, BRAC Bank Ltd and Super Star Group (SSG). They will provide customised product bundles by taking budgets, consumers’ tastes and fashion trends into consideration.
The strategic partner for the event is The Daily Star, electronic media partner is Jamuna TV, web partner is ‘banglanews24.com’ and radio partner is Radio Foorti.
The exhibition promises to provide a one-stop home décor solution. For example, BRAC Bank will be there with a booth to cater to your home loan needs. “We will provide you information about home loan and will even do a primary assessment of your eligibility to a home loan,” informed Firoz Ahmed Khan, Head of Retail Banking, BRAC Bank.
For those interested in taking part in the competition, the last date of submission is 10 October, 2015. To learn more about Home Fest Dhaka 2015, you can
“We have talent, we have resources; they just need to come together to create something stunning… In our country, we have separate showrooms for all the components necessary, but they are scattered all over the city. Home Fest Dhaka will bring everyone and everything on the same platform,” Sabbir Rahman Tanim, CEO, Windmill Advertising Ltd said.
Therefore, the whole programme’s objective is to build bridges between the different peoples and segments (designers, consumers, loan providers and numerous others) of the home decor industry at large.
