Philippines promotes diving to New Jersey residents
April 5, 2012 by Mark
Filipino officials recently attended the “Below the Sea” travel show in New Jersey. While there, they pitched Philippine diving sites. The show was attended by officials from the Department of Tourism as well as numerous tourism vendors.
According to a press release issued by the Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs, the country is full of great diving, scuba, and snorkeling spots.
These types of events are regularly held in the state. Generally, people within the travel industry attend to see what various countries have to offer. Tourism insiders such as dive shops, travel agents and media then promote these destinations to the residents of the area, including those here in Bloomfield who are looking for a holiday.
The Philippines is slowly becoming more popular with divers, independent travelers, families, and even luxury holidaymakers. This is because more and more people are visiting the area and coming home to tell their friends and family about it. As the cost of holidaying in countries like Thailand rises, more people are deciding to take a vacation in less expensive locations, such as the Philippines.
Local travel agents can capitalize on this trend by promoting the destination. The simplest way to do this is to employ printing services to order some bespoke brochures. Once brochure printers have completed the order, the finished product can be handed out to customers who are looking for a unique holiday destination. As a relatively new holiday destination, this is an excellent way of promoting awareness of a great new holiday and a great new part of the world.
