An outright gift from the People’s Republic of China, BMICH was built as a tribute to Late Prime Minister S. W. R. D. Bandaranaike. Initiated in 1970, the completed first purpose-built conference center in Asia was inaugurated in 1973. Replete with a magnificent conference & concert hall and function rooms, it was the first of its kind to accommodate a multitude of events both local and international. Over the years increasingly novel features were included to further enhance the facilities and accommodate guests looking to host splendid events.

One of the latest enhancements is the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Exhibition Centre, a palatial space of 33,000 ft² surface area as an additional venue for events with sufficient exhibiting facilities. The additions are a Cinema hall and Mihilaka Medura – an eco-auditorium with lush greenery catering to an eco-based ambience. The presence of over 20 different venues in the same location, gives our guests the flexibility to choose venues to suit their requirements.
