WILLEMSTAD- February 12, 2020 – The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) and a number of private-sector partners recently participated in the 51st edition of the international “Boot Düsseldorf” boat show in Germany. Once again, BOOT proved to be an ideal platform—one used this year for over 400 exhibitors to promote their products. The over 250,000 watersports fans visiting this edition of the fair hailed from 106 different countries, with over 24 percent arriving from outside Germany, from countries such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Brittain, Switserland, Italy, France, the United States and Canada.
This iteration of the fair focusing primarily on diving and watersports travel was another great success. And for this 51stedition, it featured a new design spanning two large exhibition halls where visitors were able to get all the information they will need for their next trip. Over the course of nine days, the Curaçao booth showcased our destination and marine life, presenting the island as a “must see” for any diver looking for a holiday that is out of the ordinary. The team also made two presentations featuring 10-minute interviews on the main stage. All visitors to the Curaçao booth were able to get a glimpse of our island through virtual reality goggles—And they were visibly impressed! That same week, the CTB organized a dinner at the Tulip Inn, inviting all co-exhibitors and tour operators. The CTB wishes to thank all private-sector partners who were part of the Curaçao team this year: Sun Reef Village on Sea, Rancho el Sobrino, Dive Division, Curaçao Divers and Dive Center Scuba Do.
