The Indian MICE Travel Agents

BMICH welcomed a team of 35 MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) travel agents from India recently on a visit to Sri Lanka.  The visit was to ascertain and familiarise themselves with the facilities offered by BMICH for conferences, destination weddings and special events. 

“India being one of the largest MICE markets, we want to promote BMICH on ‘turnkey’ basis, as a convenient and exotic location with a multitude of state-of-the-art facilities from conference venues, entertainment and gastronomic delights for the Indian corporate sector to host their corporate events, as well as for the discerning Indian travellers to celebrate their weddings and special events,” said BMICH Chief Executive/Director Sunil Dissanayake, who invited the Indian MICE Agents to visit the iconic landmark.   

The 35 MICE agents were given a comprehensive tour of the 33 venues (21 indoor and 12 outdoor) available at BMICH and agent presented with a Sri Lankan memento as a souvenir. A participating MICE agent said, “BMICH is a wonderful venue and the biggest in South East Asia, which offers a full array of facilities and infrastructure to host mega corporate events.  Furthermore, Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with friendly and helpful people which makes BMICH an ideal venue.”

It is expected that the MICE travel agents from India will spread the word amongst the corporate and destination travellers in their country and promote the BMICH as the venue of choice for MICE functions and Sri Lanka as an exotic and “all in one” destination. 

BMICH is Sri Lanka’s largest and Asia’s very first purpose-built convention centre 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.
