MTB digital fair brings all under one roof
As businesses increasingly go online to meet customers' demand for home deliveries of all types of products due to the coronavirus outbreak, a recent five-day digital fair said to have brought them all together.
Concluding on July 20, MTB Digital Lifestyle Fair 2020 is said to have offered the best combinations of products and services from home loans, appliances, furniture and automobiles to cattle and real estate.
"As people still have a huge demand for buying things, the fair aimed to promote e-commerce which is safe during this pandemic," said Syed Mahbubur Rahman, managing director and CEO of Mutual Trust Bank (MTB).
"Such fairs help make a habit of cashless transaction, which would eventually build a cashless society," he said.
Customers also benefitted from the fair getting discounts from the bank and its partner companies on availing products, Rahman said.
