Nigeria: Tourism - Nigeria Ready for Madrid FITUR-NTDC

Preparation is in top gear for a befitting outing for Nigeria at this year's annual tourism, hospitality ant travel fair known as FITUR holding in Madrid Spain at the end of January to early February.

In a press release issued in Abuja at the weekend, the Director-General of the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, said "the Corporation was putting final touches and perfecting its plan for the outing which would create a magnetic attraction to the Nigerian pavilion."

The fair which is reported to be among the three leading tourism fairs in the world will attract thousands of participants, buyers and sellers from at least 156 countries of the world.

This year, Nigeria will retain the space of 70 square metres but with a new design of its stand which is expected to reflect the Nigerian architecture.

According to Runsewe, "the pavilion would be adorned with stunning pictures of our tourist sites and clusters while artifacts, sculptures and artistic drawings depicting the Nigerian cultures and images would add colour to the entire edifice."
