Sri Lanka Virtual Tourism Conference This Week

Category: , Posted:08 Jun 2020 | 08:27 am

Sri Lanka’s state of the tourism industry is in focus for a virtual conference event this Thursday. Key Sri Lankan aviation, tourism and hotel leaders are set to discuss the evolving Covid-19 impact and journey forward.

Sri Lanka is set to join South Asia’s tourism reopening push on 1st August, following on the heels of last week’s announcement the Maldives is aiming for a July return.  With a special two-step post Covid-19 protocol laid out by the government, the country’s travel and tourism stakeholders are now focused on setting the wheels in motion for a return to business.

On Thursday 11th June at 2:30 pm Bangkok time, a comprehensive one-hour web event organized by hospitality consulting group C9 Hotelworks and Delivering Asia Communications titled “Sri Lanka – Re-Imagining the Tourism Journey Ahead” will be held. This special innovative event is expected to draw strong participation in across Sri Lanka’s travel and tourism industry, but is also attracting keen interest from Asia’s broader hotel, aviation and hospitality investment sectors.

An impressive line-up of speakers for the event includes Kimarli Fernando, Chairperson of Sri Lanka Tourism, Sri Lankan Airlines Chairman Ashok Pathirage, investment banker and entrepreneur Thilan Wijesinghe and Head of Brand Marketing for Cinnamon Hotels and Resorts Dileep Mudadeniya. As Sri Lanka looks to return to the international stage expect an open discussion of both the challenges and opportunities in the second half of 2020. Other group represented at the event include QUO, Elite Havens and Eden Villas.

A key special segment of the event will be the findings of a newly completed travel sentiment survey of prospective Chinese travelers to Sri Lanka in first tier cities in Mainland China, undertaken by C9 Hotelworks and Delivering Asia Communication. Summarizing the findings, nearly 50% of respondents are looking to travel overseas in either late this year or early in 2021, with seventy-seven percent saying they’d like to visit Sri Lanka.
