Sri Lankan High Commission in Ottawa in collaboration with the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau (SLTPB) and the Sri Lanka Tea Board participated at the International Tourism and Travel Show 2016 in Montreal.

This show is one of the largest events in the Canadian travel calendar and saw the participation of 400 exhibitors.  It was visited by over 2000 persons including travel agents and tour operators.

The Sri Lankan stall drew substantial interest providing an ideal opportunity to showcase the country as an attractive destination. Tourism promotional materials were made available in both French and English. Souvenirs including Ceylon Tea were distributed to the visitors. High Commission staff comprising Gaminda Kalansuriya, Judith Ellepola, and Abdul Mannan made necessary arrangements. Sri Lanka’s presence at this show took place after an absence of a number of years.
