On the direction of Tourism Minister Navin Dissanayake, the Sri Lanka Convention Bureau (SLCB) is taking the tourism and MICE tourism training to the regions. The last training was conducted for Kandy and Nuwaraeliya hoteliers in Kandy in association with the Kandy Hoteliers Association.

Training is one strategy for the development of MICE tourism adapted by SLCB and by conducting this in the regions, everyone gets an opportunity to participate. The program in Kandy was designed with many practical elements for 19-4participants to get a first-hand experience.

Over 50 people took part in the training which was funded by the SLCB with assistance of the Hoteliers Association. The trainers consisted of Ziyan Ameen – Aitken Spence, Felicia Adihetty – B connected and Vipula Wanigasekera and Iyroshi Jayawardena from SLCB covering wide range of areas in tourism and MICE tourism. This full-day program also entailed a case study with full participation of the hoteliers in designing an incentive travel program in which participants were encouraged to come up with creative ideas.

“This is one of our tasks in the training – to make them think out of the box towards delighting the incentive travellers with a lifetime memory,” said SLCB CEO Vipula Wanigasekera.
