Bangla Mirror Desk:

London, Monday 31st 2022 – The official launch of The Bangla Mirror Group British Bangladeshi Who’s Who 2022 publication and award gala dinner will take place in the prestigious Meridian Grand on Tuesday 8th November 2022.

The Bangla Mirror Group, publisher of the British Bangladeshi Who’s Who publication, held a press conference on Monday 31st 2022 in East London to announce the launch of the much anticipated publication.

The first British Bangladeshi Who’s Who was published in 2008 to celebrate community recognitions.. There is fine unsung talent in the community and the British Bangladeshi Who’s Who takes pride creating a benchmark to hail these individuals and their successes.  To continue the legacy this year is set to raise the bar with following on from the success and subsequent annual launch gala dinners, attended by prominent figures in politics, government, business and  media.

This year promises to be the best to date. There will be exciting new cream of the crop individuals, the publishers have unearthed in this year’s publication and several eagerly anticipated awards. The event will attract many high profile dignitaries; celebrities and guests coming together to recognise and celebrate the British Bangladeshi Community.

Abdul Karim Goni, Founder of the publication said “the Publication and Awards Ceremony are now an important date in the calendar for British Bangladeshis. I am thrilled that our brainchild to recognise our community has reached its first milestone. We have reached our first milestone as we celebrate the 13th year of this publication and launch gala dinner”.  From the humble beginning, the publication and gala event have firmly positioned themselves as leader in overall and all-inclusive celebration of British Bangladeshi Community and at an exponential rate. We have unearthed some of the real gems of our community.  As it grows we also find the challenge of limiting the number of profiles to a sensible quantity because the reality is that there are just so many successful British Bangladeshis, all with their own unique stories. However the publication features what we believe to be a good selection of individuals from various walks of life representing the wealth of success to be celebrated amongst this unique and wonderful community. I hope you enjoy this edition and I hope this is the first of many milestones for our publication”.

Suhana Ahmed  – Executive Editor of the British Bangladeshi Who’s Who said, “This year we celebrate the 13th year of this important publication. The publication has really gone from strength to strength. When it started the Founders could have only dreamt of this publication continuing and growing at the rate it has.  It amazes me that thirteen years on we continue to unearth some real talent in our community. Of course all of this is possible because of the foundations laid down by the first generation to whom we are ever indebted. I hope you enjoy this year’s publication and appreciate the success of our award winners and I hope you will continue to support us for many years to come.
