Dialog Axiata PLC, Sri Lanka’s premier connectivity provider, and the Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM), the apex body for Sri Lankan Marketers, have announced the launch of SLIM Dialog Brand Week 2024, a three-day symposium focused on the theme ‘What is Yet to Come’ in the context of brands, commerce and emerging technologies in Sri Lanka and around the world.

The transformative event set to be held at Waters Edge from the 13th to 15th of March, aims to bring together Sri Lanka’s marketing professionals to inspire, educate and empower, as well as explore how brands can contribute to Sri Lanka’s economic resilience and growth amidst the backdrop of a challenging few years for local markets. With 30+ international and local speakers participating in 15+ sessions covering topics such as effective storytelling, digital brand building, brand entrepreneurship, leveraging technology for personalised insights and more, the event has emerged as the premier conference on marketing in Sri Lanka. The forum has also gone a step further this year with an additional focus on inclusivity, and how branding impacts functions beyond departments, divisions, and sectors, with professionals outside the realm of marketing encouraged to attend.

Commenting, Kevin Almeida, Project Chair said, “This is Sri Lanka’s richest and most impactful brand marketing event and is very timely as we all strive to find innovative solutions for our country through inspiring branding and marketing. The best in the business will share their experiences with solution-driven views in addition to having enhanced engagement activities for audience interaction. The evening event will be across 3 days, which will have curated sessions that touch on critical ‘need-of-the-hour' topics to find the brand marketing solutions necessary to drive a true resurgence in Sri Lanka’s economy. This year too, day 3 morning sessions will be special as we are dedicating the morning session for school children (age 15 and above), to inspire in them a passion for and awareness of practical marketing & branding, which we believe will be valuable knowledge for our future leaders”.

Speaking on the partnership Harsha Samaranayake, Vice President of Brand and Media, Group Marketing, Dialog Axiata PLC said “As Dialog we firmly believe in empowering Sri Lanka’s future generation, it is with this focus that we have once again stepped forward to support SLIM Dialog Brand Week. The event will enable young marketers to be exposed to global thinking and local best practices leading an overall improvement in branding practices across the country. We extend our best wishes for a successful brand week.”
