South Asia Textiles Industries (Lanka) Ltd. will be the principal sponsor of the Governor’s Cup, Sri Lanka’s very own Royal Ascot, at the picturesque Turf Club Race Course in Nuwara Eliya on 15 April.
The Governor’s Cup is an age-old fixture on Sri Lanka’s social calendar, dating back to colonial times. The derby will feature, as in year’s past, a number of social gatherings, from a champagne brunch and fashion show to a formal evening gala.
“We are pleased to be given the opportunity to interact with not only Sri Lanka’s high society but also its corporate elite and key decision-makers. It is also important to realise that, over the years, the Governor’s Cup has evolved from a mere social gathering to a high-profile networking event, so we are appreciative of the chance to aid in this meet-and-greet that is sure to benefit a number of medium and large enterprises over the coming months,” said South Asia Textiles Industries (Lanka) Ltd. Chief Executive Officer Prithiv Dorai.
