Enthusiastic staff members at BMICH’s International Women’s Day program

The BMICH, Sri Lanka’s iconic landmark, organised a special program at its premises on International Women’s Day to celebrate and acknowledge the many women who contribute to making it one of the most-sought-after award-winning venues in South Asia. The special Women’s Day program was held with the active and enthusiastic participation of all female employees at BMICH. 

“We are delighted to have a strong and dedicated female workforce at BMICH who contribute to our successes on a daily basis, and we admire their courage and commitment to help achieve our goals. BMICH has a unique affiliation with women with two of Sri Lanka’s leading personalities – Late Sirimavo Bandaranaike, the first female Prime Minister of Sri Lanka and the world who was also the founding Chairperson of BMICH and Chandrika Kumaratunga, the first female President of Sri Lanka who is also the current Chairperson of the BMICH Board of Management, both being of iconic significance to our country as well as globally,” said BMICH Chief Executive Sunil Dissanayake in his address. 

After the inauguration ceremony, the main speaker, ITC Colombo One Hotel & Residences Human Resources Director Salome Senaratne addressed the participants on personality development, how to successfully face challenges, importance of education, leading a healthy life and how to effectively manage time. She also spoke of her life experiences and challenges she faced to reach the pinnacle of her chosen career while successfully balancing her family life which was an inspiration for all. 

BMICH is Sri Lanka’s largest and Asia’s very first purpose-built convention center with ultra-modern facilities. Recently redesigned, renovated and refurbished, BMICH is South Asia’s premier integrated MICE complex with all the facilities required to host any type of convention, seminar, exhibition, conference or wedding including multi-day international conventions and conferences.
