JATA Tourism Expo 2015 Japan will take place on September 25, 2015 in Tokyo. Sri Lanka will highlight the Esela Perahera at JATA Tourism Expo 2015.
The Sri Lankan contingent of 26 key industry tourism professionals will represent the country.
“Sri Lanka has recorded a flat arrival growth as at end-August 2015 with 25,973 visitors. We must now focus the correct market to attract a 50,000 by mid-year 2016,” said Sri Lanka Tourism Promotions Bureau Chairman Dr. Rohantha Athukorala.
JATA is considered one of the ideal forums to showcase varied destinations and for travel professionals to exchange travel information and conduct one-to-one business meetings, said the official website of JATA 2015.
The 2015 edition is said to attract 150 countries and regions and has the potential to directly interact with the 150,000 visitors, the conference organiser said, which is why Sri Lanka is taking a unique positioning, said Athukorala.
The expo is internationally recognized as one of the largest travel events in the world, which presents Japan as a tourism nation to the world that not only attracts the leisure sector but also other industries.
