The largest Virtual Fair of Tier 2 & 3cities
MY FM, the radio arm of DB Corp Ltd, launches the largest online real estate fair in tier 2 & 3 cities-“MY Virtual Real Estate Fair”. The online expo features more than 60 renowned real estate brands of India. Since overall demand in the real estate sector witnessed a huge break due to the current situation, the fair will act as a bridge between sellers and their prospective buyers. The four day fair starts from 27th August and culminates on 30th August 2020.
The most interesting part of the virtual fair is that buyers and sellers will get the exact “feel” of an actual expo as participants can literally walk-through the fair with exclusive stalls, demos, and even full-fledged sample-tours of the actual property. Additionally, buyers will get exclusive deals and also a chance to win smart phones and other attractive prizes. Thousands of people have already registered to be part of the fair.
Commenting on the expo, Mr. Rahul Namjoshi, COO, MY FM, says “We saw this gap between the seller and the buyer increasing since the restrictions started. It seemed impossible to crack a deal without an actual site-visit. MY Virtual Real Estate fair is set to redefine the real estate market, especially in the non-metros. I believe this is the new era of activations and we are proud to be the pioneers.”

Conducts the largest online Ganesha-Idol-making Workshop
MY FM, the radio arm of DB Corp Ltd, successfully attempted a World record for conducting the largest online workshop for making eco-friendly Ganesha Idols at home. Amidst the ongoing scenario, where people could not celebrate their most-awaited festival the way it has always been done, MY FM stepped-up to make sure people do get a taste of the festive season.
The whole idea of the initiative was to create a sense of responsibility towards our environment while making sure the festive spirit is maintained. Since this year the same fanfare and processions would not be possible, MY FM conducted an online Ganesha making workshop with an expert and provided soil and seeds to its listeners. The world record of creating 737 idols was successfully made on 21st August.
Commenting on the Initiative, Mr. Rahul Namjoshi, COO, MY FM said “2020 has been a year of caution. However, we have made sure that we are able to spread as much happiness to our listeners as we can, with our maximum efforts. Festivals are about togetherness and bringing people closer. Since we cannot do that physically, we tried to attempt the same digitally. The result was overwhelming and subsequently we managed to create a world record. I am sure we will continue with the same zeal for the upcoming festive months”
