Tourism Promo chief absent at world’s biggest tourist trade fair

Local Politics
Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau (SLTPB) Chairman Kishu Gomes has been dropped from participating at this year’s World Travel Mart (WTM) in London.
The Chairman of the promotion bureau has been a key personality that has always been participating every year at the travel industry’s biggest international mart.

However, it is learnt that the SLTPB’s Managing Director Charmerie Maelge is said to have insisted on participating at the event.

This year was a crucial year in that it was the first time that Sri Lanka was the premier sponsor of the event.

But the event went ahead without the head of tourism’s promotions body who was replaced by the MD and a number of her hand-picked officials from the bureau. The event was held in London from November 4-6 with large industry participation.
