Southern MICE Expo 2024, Unlocking the Potential of SriLanka's MICE

The Southern coast of Sri Lanka is gearing up to become the next hotspot for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions & Events (MICE) as the Sri Lanka Convention Bureau (SLCB) proudly announces the Southern MICE Expo 2024. Scheduled from May 27th to May 31st, 2024, this innovative endeavor aims to showcase the region's vast potential and position it as a premier destination for business tourism.

Building on the success of previous MICE expos in Colombo and the Northern region, the Southern MICE Expo promises to offer a unique platform for international MICE agents and media professionals to explore the untapped opportunities in the Southern Region. Meticulously organized by the SLCB with the support of the Ministry of Tourism and Lands, this initiative seeks to elevate the region's appeal and attract attention from key global markets.

The four-day agenda is packed with exciting events designed to facilitate networking, knowledge sharing, and business opportunities. Highlights include an opening plenary, a dynamic business forum, B2B meetings, an elegant gala dinner, and an immersive tour of the Southern Region. With an expected attendance of 115 MICE buyers and media representatives from diverse international markets such as India, China, Germany, UAE, and more, the expo promises to be a melting pot of ideas and collaboration.

One of the key features of the expo is the B2B meetings, which will serve as a platform for local MICE service providers – including hotels, venues, and operators – to connect with potential buyers. The SLCB is also offering a subsidized package to MICE operators and travel agents in Colombo, encouraging them to explore the Southern Region and participate in the expo's sessions.

Beyond business transactions, the SLCB is committed to creating an immersive experience that fosters community engagement and sustainable growth. By supporting local businesses and promoting the region's unique attractions, the expo aims to leave a positive impact on the economy and the community at large.

In an era where experiences matter more than ever, the Southern MICE Expo 2024 aspires to be more than just an event – it aims to be a gateway to extraordinary experiences, forging lasting connections, and driving sustainable growth in the Southern Region. Join us as we unlock the potential of this vibrant destination and pave the way for a thriving MICE industry in Sri Lanka.
