Macau promotes tourism at Berlin Fair

9 March 2012

The Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) and tour operators from Macau are taking part in the 2012 International Tourism Fair in Berlin in order to boost relations with representatives of the international tourist industry and to promote Macau as a World Tourism and Leisure Centre.

Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, a deputy director of MGTO, is heading up Macau’s delegation to the exhibition, which ends Friday in the German capital.

The MGTO pavilion, which is 90 square metres in area, promoted Macau’s new tourism projects with the aim of increasing knowledge of Macau and to explore new foreign markets.

The pavilions of the MGTO, the China National Tourism Administration, and the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) are located side by side in order to have a better promotional impact.

ITB Berlin, which has been running for over 40 years, is considered to be one of the biggest tourism fairs in the world. The ITB covers an area of 160,000 square metres and plays host to around 11,000 exhibitors from 180 countries and regions. (macauhub)
