President of the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) James Rees extended his support to the Chairman of the Sri Lanka Convention Bureau Kumar De Silva at a meeting held at the annual IMEX Frankfurt travel fair in Germany recently.

CEO of ICCA Senthil Gopinath was also present at the meeting, which focussed on the current situation in Sri Lanka, and the impact of the recent tragic events on the meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) segment.

De Silva commented that both Rees and Gopinath had assured their support to help Sri Lanka cope with the negative impact caused to this segment, and were willing to support market growth through sharing expertise and conducting training programmes during the year.
