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