Sri Lanka Tourism   concluded  its  wide range of road shows  in Eastern Europe including Poland , Czech Republic  and Hungray  on 14th ,  16th and 19th  of September respectively , in collaboration  with the   Sri Lankan Embassy in Poland.
The lighting of the traditional oil lamp was an important segment   of every event, which gave the industry members a glimpse of the Sri Lankan culture. 
The reason of having these road shows in Eastern Europe was to promote Sri Lanka as a tropical and a beautiful country to explore, with its ancient culture and heritage, history and its pristine beaches.  Sri Lanka is growing to be a   famous tourism destination among European nationals, hence, the mission of Sri Lanka Tourism is to promote this paradise island even more, with so many natural resources  and  getting more European tourists coming especially from  Eastern Europe.
Therefore, the European market is an important factor in raising Sri Lanka’s economy, and enhancing the market in Eastern Europe, is something that should be taken into consideration. Along with Sri Lanka Tourism,  industry members such as Ceylon Roots , Asian Adventures,  Aitken Spence Travels (Pvt) Ltd.  Journey Escapes , Lanka Sportrezien, Tropical Asia Tours,   Pledge Holidays , Camlo Lanka Tours , Clover Lanka  Travels , Coral Sands Hotel , Green Holiday Centre, NKAR Travels , Andrew the  Travel Company , Jetwing Travels  (Pvt) Ltd , Ayubowan Tours and Travels , Golden Isle Travels ,  E Tourismo  Lanka,  Sunway Holidays and Qatar Airways  .
Thirty five companies and 20 journalists from Poland participated in the road shows which were held while 38 tour operator companies and 17 journalists came from the Czech Republic, and Hungary added its contribution with 56 tour operator companies and 
23 journalists. 
Sri Lanka wants to develop trade contacts in order to expand the Eastern European Tourism market.  Tourist arrivals from Eastern Europe region was at 97,583 in August 2016 which was a 6  percent  increase over the same period last year. 9 percent of arrivals were from   Poland and 12 percent from the Czech Republic.  Thus, this will be a good opportunity for Sri Lanka to develop bilateral ties and also strengthen the tourism sector boosting up the Eastern European market.
