ANNUAL BLACK-TIE DINNER OF THE INSTITUTE OF HOSPITALITY LANKA INTERNATIONAL BRANCH held on Sunday 29th November 2015

The Institute of Hospitality Sri Lanka Chapter held its signature Annual Chairman’s Black-tie Dinner for the 17th consecutive year on 29 November 2015 at the Cinnamon Grand Colombo, with the British High Commissioner in Sri Lanka HE James Dauris and his spouse Ms.Helen Dauris attending as Chief Guests. Minister of Tourism Sri Lanka, Hon John Amaratunga was the Guest of Honour. 

The Annual Chairman’s Black-tie Dinner is the most stellar event in the calendar of the Institute of Hospitality Lanka International branch and has been held annually attracting a large cross-section of representation from the Leisure and Hospitality industry of the island. This year we were able to attract some of the Corporates from Unilever, Nestle, Ceylon Tobacco, Fonterra and few Sri Lankan Companies.

The November dinner put together by some of the finest gastronomical experts in Sri Lanka was a six-course epicurean meal catering to the gourmet food lover. The event commenced with cocktails followed by a sit-down dinner where each course was complemented with appropriate top-of-the-range wines, served against the backdrop of a musical ensemble featuring the De Lanerolle Brothers"

This event was the best Black Tie dinner in the recent past and received a lot of positive feedback from the British High Commissioner, Minister of Tourism, Industry leaders and the corporate sector which was encouraging. We were able to raise the Institute of Hospitality flag in high esteem through this event and the related media that followed. We are hoping to seek new memberships, as many have indicated their interests, especially after this successful event.
