WOW Dhaka: Rangpur Chapter was the last in the series of WOW divisional chapters. Held at Begum Rokeya University, the event was organised by the British Council and in collaboration with Centre for Communication and Development (CCD) Bangladesh. This chapter drew a live audience of over 10,500 people.
