Prince Charles invited to open WTM Lanka Stand

Sri Lanka Tourism has invited Prince Charles to attend the opening ceremony of the Sri Lanka Stand at the World Tourism Market (WTM) exhibition beginning November 2, 10 a.m. in Excel House London.

An official from Sri Lanka Tourism Promotions Bureau said that this is being currently coordinated by a former Ambassador to United Kingdom from Sri Lanka.

He said that the 2015 WTM has also created a unique record where 67 travel companies are participating. “This is an all time record number of participants from Sri Lanka for any travel show.”

“Sunday Times newspaper in UK has ranked Sri Lanka as the No 1 destination to travel, so we are taking WTM as a major promotion tool,” he said.

The theme of the Sri Lankan stand will be a mix of tea and the beach.Sri Lanka has also invested on a super banner at the WTM to gain additional marketing mileage.
