Fagor Industrial to attend "The Hotel Show 2010" in Sri Lanka
Fagor Industrial will be attending Sri Lanka´s premier hospitality and leisure industry event which is set to be held for the 6th time from 16th to 18th July in Colombo, at the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Memorial Exhibition Centre. The hospitality industry is the next wave of economic development for a country that aspires to become a world class destination for tourists, after decades of political unrest.
"The Government of Sri Lanka forecasts reaching 2.5 million tourists by 2016, and hotel operators are increasingly looking for quality products to provide a better service to their visitors," says Mikel Coronado, Fagor Industrial´s Export Manager in the region. "We are attending the trade show and presenting a complete selection from our portfolio, with a view to positioning our offer as a premium product and services equipment company".
Specifically, the products presented by Fagor Industrial at "The Hotel Show 2010" include the 700 cooking range, consisting of a unit made up of a four-range cooker, a fry-top, a boiling pan, a tilting bratt pan, a deep-fat fryer, a worktop element and a pasta cooker. The cooking offer is completed with four refrigeration products, a large door double cabinet, a single door display cabinet, two small door cabinets and a refrigerated counter. Finally, a compact convection oven, two ice makers and a dishwasher will also be presented.
"Typical Sri Lanka resort room rates, which were at US$ 40 two years ago, are now in the US$ 65-70 range. As the country's situation is quickly improving after thirty years of war, the tourism industry is experiencing a boom and hotel operators have started to refurbish their hotels", states Mikel Coronado. "Fagor Industrial wishes to play an active role in this market with its comprehensive product range".
Speaking on the success of the ‘Hotel Show' exhibition, the event organisers said that they are planning to host the show every year now rather than every two years, as has been the norm in the five previous editions.
