Idea Group Ltd. offered its staff and stakeholders the gift of surprise with the dawn of the New Year. The ‘Idea Abhiman’ musical extravaganza, organised by the Idea Group Ltd. was held on 6 January at the BMICH with the gracious presence of its staff and stakeholders.

While music veteran Suresh Maliyadde provided melodious music with his fellow performers, Kelum Srimal compeered this grand event.

Another noteworthy unique aspect of ‘Idea Abhiman’ was that artistes shared their thoughts with regard to the lyrics and music of their songs presented at the show by interacting with the audience and compeer.

CEO/Managing Director of Idea Group Ltd. Sampath Mayakaduwa, speaking of the event, said: “Many companies usually organise get-togethers to celebrate and to extend New Year greetings to their staff and stakeholders, but as a company with core values associated with uniqueness and novelty, we have organised this musical evening coupled with high calibre entertainment and an interactive session to nurture goodwill among our stakeholders in a pleasant and unique manner.”

“As occasions like Idea Abhiman is of rare occurrence, I sincerely believe that this will be a fruitful effort that exceeds the thresholds of an ordinary gathering. And it’s with humble joy that I denote that 2017 has been a significant year for our company in terms of sales volumes and recognition equipped with prestigious awards.”

Mayakaduwa was conferred with two Gold awards at the 22nd edition of the ‘Best Entrepreneur of the Year 2017’ awards ceremony held at BMICH, organised by the Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sri Lanka (FCCISL) in 2017.

The two Gold awards were; Provincial Gold Award (Large scale category – Western Province) and National Gold Award (Large scale category). Moreover, the ‘SIVILIMA’ brand of Idea Group Ltd. was conferred with the ‘Best Innovative Brand of the Year’ Gold award at the 16th ‘SLIM Brand Excellence 2017’. ‘SIVILIMA’ surpassed five innovative and leading brands in the country to clinch this award.

In 2012, the Idea Group diversified its business periphery to unveil the ‘SIVILIMA’ network of showrooms and within a short period of five years ‘SIVILIMA’ became a top brand and a household name proving its successful journey towards its mission of making the name Idea known to everyone.
