Aitken Spence Travels, the largest destination management company in Sri Lanka, hosted Micato, a premier cruise operator from India recently.
Micato and Aitken Spence Travels count over 25 years of doing business together to deliver premium shore excursion experiences for cruise passengers.
The group was extended a gracious welcome by the staff of Heritance Negombo, the luxury five- star property owned and managed by the Aitken Spence Group.
The visit was a holiday cum educational tour including a workshop in Colombo for the visiting Micato staff. The delegation also engaged in a sight-seeing activity in and around Colombo and the iconic cultural hub of Galle. It is envisaged that the personal experience gained from this visit would enhance the product knowledge of Micato staff to further promote Destination Sri Lanka even among the high-end clientele. “We are delighted to have hosted the visiting party from Micato, a top of the line operator that we have maintained close ties with for two decades. We are happy to have been given the opportunity to further familiarise them with the splendour of our island and I’m sure, the visit was a great experience for everyone. Visits from top global operators like Micato are an integral part of promoting destination Sri Lanka and I’m glad to have had many such opportunities in the recent past,” commented Aitken Spence Travels Vice President Prasanjit Perera who heads the UK, Nordic and Cruise markets.
Aitken Spence Travels has been in business for over 39 years and serves a diverse portfolio at the corporate and leisure sector alike and features a variety of business units that specialise in the areas of Culture, Nature and Adventure, Shore Excursions, Wellness and Luxury Travel.
