To help further cement the country’s reputation as one of the world’s best destinations for recreational and professional diving, the Tourism Promotions Board Philippines exhausts aggressive efforts in promoting it as a diving destination.
The TPB has successfully made its presence felt in numerous international dive-related events such as the Marine Diving Fair (MDF), the largest dive resort and consumer fair focused on scuba diving and travel overseas; Asia Dive Expo (ADEX) 2019, the longest running and largest dive expo in Asia; and Diving, Resort and Travel (DRT) Expo Shanghai.
Held in Japan, the MDF had over 200 exhibiting companies from 50 countries and regions all over the world, including the Philippines which had one of the largest booths. Some 50,000 visitors, mostly diving enthusiasts, attended the fair.
At ADEX, the Philippine representatives promoted the new and existing diving destinations in the country and also learned more about water sports in general from distinguished scientists, equipment manufacturers, marine conservationists, and underwater photographers and videographers.
The DRT in Shanghai had over 200 exhibitors and more than 40,000 participants. The Philippine participants showcased local diving products and conducted product presentations which included business-to-business networking among Chinese dive counterparts.
The next few months will see TPB participate in more dive events such as the Malaysia International Dive Expo and the Diving and Resort Travel, which will be held in different locations including Hong Kong, Taipei, and the Philippines.
