The Colombo International Book Fair marks 20 Years of catering to the readers of Sri Lanka and in accordance with it ventures into adding further value to the exhibition by including a select set of stalls from institutes in Sri Lanka that offer guidance in higher education, skills training and career opportunities.
The aforesaid extension to the event will be hosted in the VIP Lounge of the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) and will be known as the CIBF - Education & Career Exhibition. The extended exhibition will be conducted under the theme "Access to Better Living through Education".
The institutes are selected based on their unique ability to endorse a particular career path and offer clarity to an eager student or a growing professional of what next steps to take. Taking advantage of the fact that the CIBF is a ten day event - from the 21st September to the 30th September 2018, the institutes participating in the CIBF - Education & Career Exhibition are able to make themselves more available for interested individuals to engage with.
The CIBF - Education & Career Exhibition offers 'time' to pursue a more meaningful hunt for education and career options, and in doing so hopes that their patrons will not only walk home with books to read but also with rich information that is sufficient to inspire greater decisions.
