Sri Lanka Meeting Planning Overview
An exciting and beautiful locale for a meeting or convention, the tropical island nation of Sri Lanka delights meeting travelers with its unique venues, cultural heritage, scenic landscapes, and stunning beaches. Set in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is experiencing recent development in transport and connectivity throughout the country, which has led to an increase in tourism and business travel. Sri Lanka's UNESCO World Heritage Sites, pristine coastline, 15 national parks, and hundreds of thousands of acres of tea estates and botanical gardens ready for exploration don't hurt either.
Sri Lanka's bustling Colombo, which serves as one of its two capitals, is also major meeting spot, thanks to its proximity to Bandranaike International Airport, the country's principal airport. Meeting travelers can fly into the airport and easily get to such meeting venues as Colombo's Sri Lanka Convention & Exhibition Centre. Conveniently located in the city center and near scenic Beira Lake, the center’s 40,000 square feet of space is perfectly equipped for conferences, trade shows, meetings, and much more. Delegates meeting at the Sri Lanka Convention & Exhibition Centre are within a short walk of major hotels, as well as other public attractions and transportation.
