Dealers who achieved beyond their targets in 2017 were rewarded by Multilac, Sri Lanka’s popular household paint, by taking the top performers on a dream excursion to see the exciting landmarks of New York and Washington.

It was a memorable experience for the 38 Multilac dealers who were treated to six days of sight-seeing in the dazzling cities. What made the holiday even more exciting was that the group was accompanied by Mizver Makeen, the Managing Director of Macksons Holdings and several senior managers to ensure that the dealers enjoyed a perfect tour. 

The visit included a guided city tour of New York, visiting important and well-known landmarks including Wall Street, Rocker Feller Centre, World Trade Centre, Ground Zero, Broadway and Times Square with a brief stop at the Trump Tower.

The group visited Madame Tussauds Wax Museum as well as the Empire State Building and were able to enjoy a panoramic view of the city from the observation deck on the 86th floor. They even had time to shop at the exclusive malls at the Times Square and ferry across to the Statue of Liberty. The group’s excursion included a visit to the famous Six Flags Amusement Park and an amazing illumination tour of Niagara Falls plus a helicopter ride over the picturesque water fall. 

Their guided tour in Washington took the group to the US Capitol Building, World War II Memorial and Lincoln Memorial, and of course the White House was also in their itinerary. They had opportunity to see the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and the Martin Luther King Memorial too. The group of top performers were able to enjoy a truly unforgettable visit to USA.
