Brand Finance Lanka the pioneering brand valuation and strategy firm, which introduced Sri Lanka’s most valuable brands back in 2004, is gearing up to celebrate its 16th consecutive year of publishing the much sought after annual review of brands in April 2019. This review includes valuing the top 100 Sri Lankan brands, as well as an analysis across other sectors, such as export brands and e-commerce brands, providing a comprehensive view of the Sri Lankan brand landscape.

“The annual review is being launched this year under the theme ‘Brands and Technology’, which will feature 4 simultaneous mini-presentations at the Park Street Mews,” said Brand Finance Lanka Managing Director Ruchi Gunewardene. 

The presentations will feature Dialog Axiata Group Chief Operating Officer Dr. Rainer Deutschmann, Landor Mumbai Managing Director Lulu Raghavan, PickMe Chairman Ajit Gunewardene and Managing Director Zulfer Jiffry, and independent international consultant Simon Bell, who will be discussing topics around this theme.

According to Gunewardene, their current research has shown that Sri Lanka is moving to an inflection point of technology adoption, which makes the theme of brands and technology a highly relevant topic for discussion.
