Why has WADE ASIA shifted the dates to 22-23-24 September 2023?

By wadeasia 28 July, 2023

WADE ASIA has become a national name among the mega architecture & interior design events of India. A sudden change of dates has made the design fraternity curious to know why the dates were shifted just a month before the event. In the last seven years, WADE ASIA has never changed the dates so what prompted them to do so, asked many of the readers of SURFACES REPORTER magazine, knowledge partner of the event.

In an official statement shared by the WADE ASIA management addressing the delagates and visitors, the following is mentioned:

“Many of you wanted to know why the dates of WADE ASIA are shifted. Well, it is not what we wanted to do. India holds the Presidency of the G20 Leaders Summit this year and the venue of the event is Pragati Maidan Delhi. As a sudden unprecedented development due to G20 summit, Government of India needed the venue for the entire month of August and beyond. Several events were scheduled during this time. The smaller ones are managing in some other available halls but WADE ASIA due to its large size and scale could not accommodate in available options offered. Also, being a highend design event, WADE cannot compromise in terms of infrastructure. While Pragati Maidan is full of events through out the year, the next available slot was around the Christmas this year.

We rushed out to find other avenues but to not much of success. Fortunately we got a lot of support from venue management in availing dates in September from 22-24 and in the spirit of national interest we are taking this in a positive stride. Moving on is important.

We did not need the change. We did not want the change. We were prepared for the event. No doubt, the kind of redoing, rebooking and so much of reworking is painstaking and costly for us. One thing that remains unshaken is the great support we are receiving from industry and design fraternity. It is massive and beyond our imagination. We deeply regret the inconvenience created by this change which is beyond our control and looking forward to your support in creating a wonderful WADE ASIA again!”

Another frequently asked question is whether the old registration will be valid for the new dates. The answer is yes. Rest, for all queries, one is requested to write a mail to hello@wadeasia.com.
