May '08
The 54th Industrial Handicrafts Exhibition 2008 is scheduled from May 27 to June 10 at Kashmir Haat. The expo is organized by the State Government to promote the local craft and industry among domestic and foreign visitors.

More than 148 stalls are being set up for the participants who will showcase their products in front of potential business clients and onlookers. Cultural programmes would also take place simultaneously, to make the event more vibrant.

The artisans will display a wide range of products including colourful carpets, pashmina shawls, paper mache and wood carvings, that are famous world wide for their excellent craftsmenship. This 15 day event is expected to draw lot of attention from the tourists who like to buy souvenirs and take back home as a memory.

The authorities are planning to hold such exhibitions at regular intervals in order to revive domestic craft that is slowly fading away due to various reasons including lack of promotion and finance.
