Of the selected bloggers who  will travel to Sri Lanka for Cinnamon TBCasia, 30 award finalists were recently announced at an event held at ITB in Germany, the world’s biggest tourism trade fair and B2B platform for trade visitors. Three lucky bloggers who attended the eventalso won a raffle draw prize with a fully-hosted trip to Sri Lanka and the chance to attend Cinnamon TBCasia courtesy of Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts and SriLankan Airlines.

Cinnamon TBCasia is the only travel bloggers conference around the world to have a four day pre-conference tour for all hosted bloggers. Following the successful completion of the event held in 2014, the event is now scheduled to take place in June 2016 with the inclusion of Cinnamon Travel Blogger Awards – that recognizes the contribution and role that travel bloggers play in the travel and tourism industry.

Apart from the 30 award winning bloggers who will be present at this year’s conference, there will also be 30 other popular bloggers from key generating markets such as the United Kingdom, China, India, Germany and France, creating a global audience that will generate a mammoth reach in terms of international exposure and online visibility for Sri Lanka in a very short span of time.
