eTN Sri Lanka Ambassador to speak at WTM


Srilal Miththapala, the Project Director of SWITCH-Asia Greening Sri Lanka Hotels Project and eTurboNews Ambassador will be one of the five speakers at the seminar on “Making Destinations More Sustainable” which will be held on November 8, 2011 at the North Galley of the World Travel Market (WTM) exhibition premises.

The EU-funded Greening Sri Lanka Hotels project, implemented by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, has been in operation since 2009 and has engaged more than 150 hotels in Sri Lanka to work towards energy and environmental conservation.

The project will have its own stall at WTM, and the project team, together with three selected hotels, will showcase the good work done to visitors at the exhibition. In this manner, the program will give publicity and enhance the status of Sri Lanka tourism as a more sustainable tourist destination.
