Being the national body for marketing in the country, Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM) participated at the recently held Future Minds Exhibition, as the silver sponsor for the fourth consecutive year.
SLIM provided an unforgettable experience for young students who gathered at the event to get an idea of the educational portfolio of SLIM and to get registered for those programmes with exclusive discounts and unmatchable gifts.
“Nalanda Old Boys’ Association has come up with great endeavour for many years with the great thought of elevating students and professionals in Sri Lanka. Playing a vital role at the exhibition SLIM had the responsibility to communicate the study programmes we possess, and assist them to grow up in their career ladder by becoming valued professionals.” claimed SLIM President Upul Adikari.
While SLIM has been participating at the Future Minds Expo regularly and seeing a large crowd gathered at the SLIM stall conveyed us the message about the vitality of marketing being understood by the youngsters.
The exhibition was held at the BMICH from June 17 to 19, Kandy on June 24 and 25 at KCC, and is scheduled to be held in Galle Town Hall on September 3 and 4 this year.
Commenting on SLIM’s role at the exhibition, SLIM CEO Sanath Senanayake said that with the positive experience we have had participating at Future Minds in previous occasions, SLIM decided to be a Silver sponsor this year too. The enthusiasm of the prospective students, the enormous effort extended by the SLIM staff and the support by the Future Minds organising committee helped immensely to highlight SLIM at the expo.
All the students who registered at the event availed themselves for valuable discounts of their choice of programme and all of them were entitled for a raffle draw of which offered them various discounts and mobile phones as gifts for selected study programmes that they have registered.
SLIM’s decision taken to participate in the exhibition was because ‘Future Minds’ is a well-established educational exhibition in the country which attracts many students and professionals, this makes it an ideal marketing opportunity for SLIM. The lively stall of SLIM entranced many students who were enlightened about the SLIM programmes. Many were interested in following the courses which SLIM offers.
