Aside the selection of performances, there will also be a number of Bollywood A-list stars in attendance and four daily fashion shows.
Exhibitors will showcase goods covering all aspects from one's lifestyle, which fall in to the following sectors: Time spent at the Asian Lifestyle 2004 means having accessibility to specialist goods and items you never even dreamed existed and is an event for everyone, irrespective of age and income.
In addition, a variety of interactive activities will be on offer to ensure that visitors achieve the ultimate experiences. Extra features include astrology readings, beauty makeovers, recruitment village, cookery demonstrations, cinema theatre, sports demonstrations, kids activity playground and the Virtual Reality Experience.
Show Director, Tony Lit, is the creative genius behind Asian Lifestyle 2004 and sees the exhibition as a chance for its visitors to experience the richness of Asian culture in Britain.
Lit comments, "There have been many attempts to create this
type of show in the past, but there has always been
something missing, either the products have been right and
the venue wrong, or the venue is right and the product
wrong. This show intends to deliver on both fronts and is an
event not to be missed."

entrepreneurial ambitions and achievements amongst students,
faculty members and in the wider scientific and business
community. They have also not forgotten to encourage those
of us who are growing the development of teaching and

well. We are thrilled to enjoy their close cooperation and
