Sri Lanka to hold 10th edition of country’s travel and tourism exhibition – Sancharaka Udawa

The Sri Lanka Association of Inbound Tour Operators (SLAITO) has reportedly announced that the 10th edition of the Sancharaka Udawa, which is Sri Lanka’s only travel and tourism exhibition, will be held this year at the BMICH on 15 and 16 May.
SLAITO has made the announcement along with the main sponsor of the event – Sri Lanka Tourism.
According to reports, designed to cater to both the B2B and B2C sectors of the industry, the two-day expo aims to provide exhibitors with an influential and robust platform for small, medium and large travel and tourism service providers to interact and build lasting connections with their respective target stakeholders, as well as to effectively engage with the relevant government authorities.
Local media reports have further noted that organisers will be commemorating 10 years of Sancharaka Udawa this year, with an exhibition slated to be its biggest yet.
The exhibition this year expects to host more than 300 local and international exhibitors and the fair is estimated to attract over 10,000 trade and public visitors walking through its doors between on 15 and 16 May at the venue.
Nushani Ediriweera Dias, Chairperson of Sancharaka Udawa 2020 has underlined the role of the exhibition at a news conference.
She has noted that the event would be the driving force for the travel industry. “For the past decade we have witnessed how Sancharaka Udawa has enhanced the industry by connecting operators with a large network of decision makers in each sector. It has become more important now than ever before that the various sectors of the industry work closely together to uplift Sri Lanka’s unique brand of hospitality,” she has been quoted as saying
Key features of Sancharaka Udawa this year will include engaging talks, seminars and networking sessions.

OSL take:

Sri Lanka’s tourism industry is on a continuous growth path with an increase in tourist arrivals to the country as well as foreign investments to the industry. Sri Lanka continues to be listed as a must visit destination by many globally renowned travel publications resulting in the expansion of business opportunities in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry. It is in this backdrop that the country would host the 10th edition of ‘Sancharaka Udawa’ tourism expo in Sri Lanka. The event while portraying the latest developments in the country’s tourism industry would also show the expanding business/investment opportunities in the industry.
