Qrius Connect announced the MICE CONNECT 2019 Sri Lanka edition, which was scheduled to be
held on May 9 and 10 is now going to be held on July 2 and 3, 2019 at the Hilton, Colombo.
The re-scheduling has been considered due to the recent bomb attacks that took place in Sri Lanka
on Easter’s Sunday on April 21. We mourn for the victims and pray for their families.
Since the incidents, authorities have moved quickly to strengthen the security situation in Colombo
and across the country and according to security officials, everything is being done to ensure the
safety of all visitors in the future.
“I firmly believe that this show will be utmost beneficial to build and strengthen the relations
between the Indian buyers and the hospitality brands from Sri Lanka who will be participating and it
will also be a confidence booster among all the participating sellers and buyers. I wish to urge
everyone to be united and promote Sri Lanka as a beautiful destination as always. I share the
immense gratitude to our official partners who has been with us as our strength,” said Nishant

“Our first priority at the Hilton Colombo and all our future property’s throughout the country has
always been the security of our guests. To that end we have instituted immediate additional
measures including hand held and walk through scanners at all entrances to the hotel along with
baggage scanners. Much of the security measures we have and are taking have long been in place
across India,” said Christopher Zappia, Commercial Business Director of Hilton Sri Lanka.
“Sri Lanka is an amazing country, with a rich cultural heritage, endless natural beauty that is home to
a welcoming, warm and generous people. We hope to be able to quickly move on from the tragic
events of the past few weeks to let people know that Sri Lanka remains a destination that should be
at the top of everyone’s itinerary. To that end, we look forward to our partnership with Q’rius
