Dhaka International Trade Fair is an international trade fair in Bangladesh. It is organized by the Export Promotion Bureau together with the Ministry of Commerce of the Government of Bangladesh. DITF is held from the first week of January to the first week of February every year. The entrance fee is less than US$1 and it is open from 10 am to 10 pm every day. Ever since the first fair was inaugurated on 1 December 1995, DITF has been held annually at Sher-E-Bangla Nagar in Dhaka on the west side of Bangabandhu International Conference Centre. In addition to Bangladeshi companies, many companies from around the world participate routinely every year. There are country-specific foreign sections at the fair, which has over seven hundred mini-stalls, general stalls, premium stalls, mini-pavilions, and mega-pavilions. The finest local and foreign products are showcased at the fair. Every year hundreds of thousands of people visit the fair to enjoy a wonderful day shopping for the best products from Bangladesh and overseas. Products displayed and sold include electronics, cars, porcelain wares, machinery, carpets, toys, ceramics, fabrics, melamine wares, sanitary products, handicrafts, ready-made garments, home appliances, processed foods, furniture, textiles, plastic goods, jute products, winter clothes, leather goods, cosmetics, sports goods, jewelry and more. Visitors are drawn to the numerous attractive discounts, special offers, introductory prices, gifts, and lotteries of DITF. Various food stalls offer delectable local and foreign food items to customers wishing to take a break from exploring the huge fair venue.
A shopping spree begins from day one and gathers momentum from the middle of January. The last seven days see hectic buying with very large crowds during holidays and especially during the weekends, which are Fridays and Saturdays in Bangladesh. Shopping enthusiasts make a mental note of the direction they wish to go and where amenities such as washrooms, ATM booths, and food stalls are located in order to successfully explore the fair in its entirety. One cannot expect to cover the entire fair in a single visit. Since the fairground is enormous, a pair of comfortable walking shoes is very important and has to be worn. Firemen, police, and hundreds of close-circuit cameras provide comprehensive security. There are many ATM booths of various banks, which accept all major debit and credit cards, where people withdraw money in local currency if extra cash is required. Other special facilities include medical centers; mother and child daycare centers; children's park; eco-park; e-Shop; healthcare center; a mosque; over fifty toilets; and three car parks accommodating over a thousand cars.
