inspiring conference. An exchange of innovative design ideas between
5000+ creative minds over a period of two days from 21st

to Re:Imagine!’

FOAID conducts an exemplary
conference to bring together fraternity members who express their
creative instincts and imaginative ideas. The objective is to inspire
and connect architects, developers, consultants, PMC contractors,
