As one of the most prestigious dinner dances and a highlight in Colombo’s social calendar, the AmCham Ball continues to be a highly anticipated “Black tie” affair with a 5 course sit down dinner that offered a mesmerizing ambience. Principal Sponsor of the event was HSBC whilst Dialog Enterprise was the Principal Communication Partner.
