Being held for the 10th consecutive year, Seylan Colombo Motor Show, the single largest automotive event in Sri Lanka will be held from 18 - 20 August at the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Memorial Exhibition Centre (BMICH) in Colombo.
The event is organised by Asia Exhibition and Conventions (Pvt.) Ltd, with Seylan Bank coming onboard as the title sponsor for the third consecutive year, and a crowd turnover exceeding the 100,000 mark during the three days is expected.
Asia Exhibition Chairman Tyronne Chandrasekara said “We are proud to have carved a space for the sole purpose of creating awareness on a large scale about the innovative and rapid progress of the motor industry.”
“The company which was established a decade ago has continued providing its diverse clientele with the most effective packages covering the whole spectrum of event management with unmatched flexibility, setting the client at ease from conception to completion,” he noted at a media briefing held at JAIC Hilton.
Seylan Bank Consumer Finance Deputy General Manager Delvin Pereira said “For the last two years we have powered this mega motor show as we want to establish our bank as a leading player in the motor vehicle financing sector which has seen a decline in the financing aspect due to various regulations imposed by the government.”
“However things have improved during this year and we want to stay ahead of our competitors in the motor financing sector. I would also like to invite the public to visit our stall at the Seylan Motor Show where we will provide you with on the spot, tailor-made leasing/financing facilities as we intend to build long lasting relationships with our customers,” he added.
