Under the title ‘Sri Lanka is Blossoming,’ MIM Magazine, which is the most popular and prestigious  Meetings and Incentive Magazine in Europe, in its latest issue  has given a detailed account of the development in the country which has immensely contributed to the increased tourism and MICE tourism activities in Sri Lanka. The story starts with the caption ‘Visitors to Colombo immediately notice that the capital is getting ready for major projects. The city is clean. If you travel further south, you will see major, new developments, a new airport, a new high way, new hotels, and a new congress centre.’ Sri Lanka Convention Bureau GM Vipula Wanigasekera says that the Editor of MIM Magazine Marcel Vissers was in Sri Lanka recently and he had the opportunity of seeing the country for himself. The article describes the facelift given to Colombo, new tourism properties coming up, refurbished BMICH and the elegance of Nelum Pokuna, as well as the development in the south including the airport and Convention Centre in Hambantota, etc. Being a reputed magazine among corporates in Europe, this would give a tremendous boost to the image of Sri Lanka for MICE tourism, said Wanigasekera.
