The Jaffna International Trade Fair (JITF) will be held for the 6th consecutive year from the 23rd, 24th & 25th of January 2015 at the Duraiyappah Staidum in Jaffna.
The Trade Fair is being organized by the Lanka Exhibition and Conference Services (Pvt) Ltd. with the prime objective of helping business entities of various industries to make inroads into the peninsula which had long been relegated as an area too risky to invest in. Now these constraints and restrictions are no more and the doors are wide open for entrepreneurs and established businesses to operate in an environment which is conducive for long and short term investment.
With a clear mandate and a road map for development, there are indeed opportunities in a wide range of industries which encompasses all facets and stages of these industries in the northernmost tip of this beautiful island.
The Jaffna Peninsula is considered to be amongst the most lucrative destination in the country for business after the end of a three decade long civil war. It still remains a virtually virgin market with many opportunities for private commercial enterprises to make inroads into a vast potential market for investors, both in and outside the peninsula.
JITF 2014 had 62,000 visitors from all over Sri Lanka during the 3 days. A total of 7500 delegates were specially invited to the show and 293 international visitors/delegates also visited the show in 2014.
JITF 2014 comprised a total of 320 stalls and 25 foreign stalls.
The event showcased the latest technology developments in all sectors. It also brought together technology, suppliers, entrepreneurs and support services on a single platform.
