WILLEMSTAD - The Curacao Tourist Board (CTB) together with 6 private sector partners attended boot Düsseldorf 2023. This is the largest watersports fair which is held annually in Germany. This year the 9-day exhibition took place from January 21 till 29 and reached almost 237 thousand visitors. There were more than 1500 exhibitors who attended this fair from almost 100 countries.
During the fair the team from Curaçao gave 3 interviews on the dive stage and an interview on boot TV. They also gave presentations every day to showcase Curaçao as a tourist destination, thereby focusing especially on diving. In addition, the Curaçao team hosted a Curaçao Cocktail Happy Hour, at which 150 guests attended, among them consumers, Tour Operators and press members. Furthermore, our team also participated in the promotional video of next year’s edition of boot Düsseldorf. CTB extends its gratitude to the private sector partners that were part of the Curaçao team this year: Sun Reef Village on Sea, Rancho El Sobrino, Dive Division, Curaçao Divers, Scuba Lodge and LionsDive Beach Resort Curaçao.
The fair offered the Curaçao team the ideal platform to connect with the community of watersports lovers, professionals and media representatives. Many of them were already familiar with the unique opportunities that Curaçao offers with regards to diving, but we also met visitors who were looking for new destinations where they can practice their favorite sport. With a perfect climate and a unique biodiversity, our island has a lot to offer, both on land and under water.
