The preliminary round of “Destination Sri Lanka – Episode 2”, the Intra-university tourism knowledge challenge organized by the Department of Marketing and Tourism Management in collaboration with SLAITO (Sri Lanka Association of Inbound Tour Operators), concluded successfully on the 23rd of August at the University premises. 

This competition was organized for the second consecutive year with the prime intention of uplifting the practical tourism knowledge base of the university’s students pursuing their undergraduate degrees in Events, Tourism & Hospitality Management. The challenge comprised a question round based on tourism product attributes and a tour itinerary-building competition. Twenty undergraduates representing tourism and hospitality programmes across the university participated in a riveting contest where two teams ultimately emerged victorious and qualified for the Grand Finale to be held in line with the World Tourism Day celebrations of NSBM Green University.
