Architects’ Opinion

 Overall, I loved the idea of bringing woman talent in the forefront and our Indian society badly needs it. I told my wife in detail about WADE ASIA and just by knowing about this initiative she felt confident to take her work ahead as a practicing architect. She appreciated founders & entrie team for the efforts. I was aware of Surfaces Reporter but the way WADE ASIA started and evolved is notable.

Kudos to Vertica and WADE Team for the fantastic event and the hospitality provided to us all. It was full two days of listening, learning, get together, mentoring, good food and nice time. Best wishes for more such event in future which I believe shall be much larger in scale.

WADe ASIA 2022 at Delhi was an enviable national success. The scale of Exhibition was huge & remarkable – a perfect one. The warmth was amiable and planning was meticulously done giving all who attended, a sort of Euphoria.

The “Feel Good” factor, that was prevalent all throughout the wonderfully executed event of WADE ASIA 2022, continues to make me feel good even now! I thoroughly enjoyed being a small part of this mega event, meeting my old friends, making new ones along the way, getting awed by the scale of the exhibition and impressed by the architectural quality and innovation of the entrants..!! The fact that there were more than 1,200 entries speaks a lot about the popularity of the WADE ASIA competition. The jury was held in a very transparent and well organized manner, and as a juror, I felt satisfied at the outcome.

Bringing wood & surface industry together on one platform was very challenging, but organizers have done wonderful task & as an architect it became easy for a comparative in various segments of wood- ply, laminate, veneer, frames, flooring etc. and easy selection of brands to work with in future for different profile of clients. It also brought the awareness that our Indian vendors especially in furniture design & production are producing quality products & are striving for excellence which are at par with international competition since I have experienced Milan Fair & China in the past. MATECIA Innovation zone was a creative idea to put forth designers who want to try out new avenues for growth and it attracted aspiring students and Indian vendors looking for innovative designers with whom they could handhold together as a team for future collaborations.

This is my first time attending WADE ASIA and the experience is fantastic. There is an immense opportunity to interact with the colleagues from the industry. I came here as a juror and the number of enteries are pretty good with some really interesting work at display. It was really nice interacting with the upcoming talent.

Wonderful event. I was very happy to be a part of a very sincere and excellent effort. I have great respect for the production quality and content of Surfaces Reporter since it’s early days. Now it has become a benchmark amongst publications. Here is wishing you create WADE ASIA too as the benchmark awards program in coming years.

WADE ASIA is a very-well organized event. There are many pavillions showcasing the latest products and the technical sessions are very good. I am a part of the WADE ASIA Jury. The quality of presentations was very good. There are so many youngsters coming up and creating beautiful designs. They will be the part of a promising future and impart a major change. WADE ASIA must continue its endeavour as there are not many players who are dedicated for it.
