Design and Construction for the Philippine Booth at the 2018 Boot Dusseldorf


EVENT: BOOT Düsseldorf, 20-28 January 2018
VENUE: Dusseldorf Exhibition Centre, Germany


The Düsseldorf International Boat Show, most commonly known as Boot Düsseldorf, is one of the world’s premier boat shows held annually in Messe, Dusseldorf, Germany for the duration of one week, usually by the end of January. 

It is considered a benchmark for the international boat and water sports industry attended by more than 1,830 exhibitors from 65 countries and over 250,000 visitors in 2017.

The Philippines’ participation provides a venue for the local private sector partners to establish and renew their linkages with travel industry counterparts and to showcase the country as a premium and competitive dive destination for the German market.

This year, the Philippines maintained its booth to 150 sq. meters, to accommodate more private sector participants and to offer more Philippine dive packages to the German market.

The event is being attended by major scuba diving associations like PADI, SSI, IAC and German Scuba Divers (VDST)


The construction of the aforementioned booth aims to attain the following:

1. Provide the Philippine sellers a platform to meet and strengthen partnership with European dive tour operators and media;
2. Generate direct sales of Philippine packages to consumers in the market;
3. Create an atmosphere that reflects the Philippines as the “premier” dive destination in Asia;
4. Increase tourist arrivals to the Philippines from Germany and other European source markets; and,
5. Provide a highly functional yet visually appealing area for provision of Philippine tourism information, product updates, audio visual presentations, business transactions, table top meetings, and other animation activities.

The design of the Philippine Stand aims to attain the following:

1. Generate positive “name recall” of the Philippine tourism brand and boost dive enthusiasts from Europe to populate the Philippine dive destinations.
2. Attract and encourage buyers, consumers, press and travel trade guests to visit the Philippine stand.
3. Provide a highly functional, interactive yet visually appealing area for the provision of Philippine tourism information, product updates, audio visual presentations, table top business meetings, and other promotional activation.
4. Highlight the featured Philippine dive destinations with focus on Tubbataha Reef, Batangas, Cebu, Bohol and Davao
