Starting the festive season with a bang, Singer lifestyle exhibition and fair was held at the BMICH recently, attracting a large gathering.
The three-day fair enabled the consumers to have the ultimate shopping experience and to witness the latest technology.
They got the opportunity to purchase many products under one roof which ranged from electronic items to household items and almost everything at affordable prices.
Singer Asia CEO Gavin Walker, Singer Group of Companies CEO Dr. Saman Kelegama, Singer Sri Lanka CEO Asoka Peiris were among the guests who were present at the opening day of the event.
Singer Group of Companies CEO Dr. Saman Kelegama said that even though they have 400 distribution networks around the country, all brands may not be available in a particular shop and in a fiesta like this people get the opportunity to witness all products they market. He also was delighted about their recent achievement about being the first runners up at the ‘Best Corporate Citizen Sustainability Award 2015’ hosted by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce.
The trade and entertainment fair showcased over 1000 products and selected items were offered discounts from 10-50 percent.
Singer Asia CEO Gavin Walker said that it is a fantastic event where no other company in Sri Lanka could do.
“That is a credit for all of us” he said.
At the event he also thanked the customers for placing trust on them, the suppliers, the staff and their families for the immense support given by them. The event took a carnival like atmosphere which was a fun-filled event for the families as well which featured fashion shows, magic shows, bicycle shows along with food stalls while there was a play area for kids which had many attractive events organised such as water games, bouncy castles etc.
