Over 100 dealers of Asian Paints Lanka have been rewarded with foreign tours to Switzerland, Thailand and Hong Kong in the last seven months for outstanding sales performances for the India – headquartered multinational coatings company.
Elite dealers who belong to the Asian Paints ‘Privilege Club’ were treated to a tour of Switzerland while dealers who exceeded sales targets for the concluded financial year received two tours to Thailand and Hong Kong.
During the seven day Switzerland tour, the ‘Privilege Club’ members witnessed some splendid sights including ‘The Titlis,’ the tallest mountain in Switzerland and Rhine Falls, the largest plain waterfalls in Europe. A mountain railway excursion to Jungfrau – ‘Top of Europe,’ considered to be the most famous day trip in Switzerland, was the highlight of the tour.
Asian Paints Lanka also conducted its annual awards ceremony for ‘Privilege Club’ members in Lucerne at which it rewarded top dealers for their outstanding sales performances throughout the year.
Asian Paints dealers who toured Hong Kong spent four delightful days in the country, including a full day at Disneyland. They also enjoyed themselves at Ocean Park, the unique oceanarium considered to be the seventh most popular Amusement Park in the world.
A cruise on an express ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi Island and a guided coach tour of Phuket entertained the Asian Paints Thailand tour group. Phi Phi is the island on which the Hollywood blockbuster – ‘The Beach’ was filmed.
“We believe that exceptional accomplishments achieved through commitment and dedication should be rewarded fittingly,” said Joseph Pulikottil, director/general manager of Asian Paints Lanka. “A feature of Asian Paints’ relationship with dealers is its consistency in recognising their contributions to the company’s success.”
Asian Paints’ top dealers have in previous years toured India, Thailand, Malaysia, Dubai, New Zealand, Australia, France, Spain and Egypt.
