A small island in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka with its surfeit of natural wonders from beautiful beaches to luscious hills, flowing rivers to gushing waterfalls, bird and wildlife sanctuaries to its tropical climate - is an ideal destination for conferences, meetings, seminars, special events and even weddings! Add to this the tea plantations, historical archaeological sites and its warm and friendly people, this little island gets only more appealing as a destination for events.
Today, Sri Lanka has emerged from its civil war and the country has developed and grown; as has its people. The government’s efforts to upgrade infrastructure, encourage foreign investments and promote Sri Lanka as an ideal tourist and MICE destination has been successful. Sri Lanka is slowly but steadily becoming an international destination on the tourist radar, as well as a popular destination for hosting regional or international meetings, conferences and special events.
With famed international hotel brands like Shangri-La, Sheraton, ITC entering the market place, coupled with well-respected local hotel chains like Cinnamon, Chaya, Kingsbury, and Heritance, Sri Lanka is geared to offer high-end, high quality facilities for tourists and event planners alike. Other infrastructure facilities like highways, telecommunication and transportation facilities; together with the availability of conference and cultural centres, international standard stadiums and open grounds, make Sri Lanka even more appealing as an event hosting location.
Visitors to Sri Lanka can also entertain themselves with traditional events like the Sinhala Avurudu celebrations in April, the Vesak celebrations in May, and the Perahera during July/August. For the adventure lovers, there is Whitewater rafting, camping in Ella, hiking, climbing Adam’s Peak, water sports and even whale and dolphin watching.
Our little island destination has much to offer, and Sri Lanka which is strategically located from a geographic perspective with its comparatively lower price range, and different locations from cities and hills to the dry plains and beaches, only adds to the appeal of this little island in the Indian Ocean as an events destination. Further, the shorter distances make travel around Sri Lanka relatively easy whether you are in the East, West, North or South.
Sri Lanka has to date been the host country for many international events, from cricket matches to SAARC events and even Film Awards ceremonies.
