‘Intense’ e-Asia promotion for Kandy, Kurunegala and Galle

The "e-Asia 2009 mobile bus" was launched on Wednesday to mark the seven-day countdown for this international ICT conference which is set to begin on December 2 at Colombo's BMICH. Announced to be setting off for Kandy, Kurunegala and Galle, the bus comprised onboard computer facilities as well as other materials relevant to forming a "part of an intense promotional campaign" intended to get the word out about e-Asia to these three urban city centres and "all areas along the way" which encompass the bus's week-long travels.

Also, according to the Chief Operating Officer of Sri Lanka's Information and Communication Technology Agency, Reshan Dewapura, e-Asia will feature 60 corporations exhibiting as well as 200 speakers, 120 of which represent 25 countries and 80 locals. Addtionally, initial estimates indicate that, out of the 1,000 delegates expected at the e-Asia conference, as many as 400 may be foreign.
