Nigeria: Novel Stand for Nigeria at ITB Berlin

As one of the world's biggest tourism fair, ITB Berlin, opens early next month in Germany's capital Berlin, Nigeria through the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation has acquired a 60 Sq metre space on which its stand would be erected.

Nigeria alongside at least 149 other countries would participate in the yearly five-day exhibition, which is expected to bring thousands of buyers, sellers and visitors to the Messe Berlin Fair Ground.

The Nigerian head of delegation, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, who is also the Director-General of the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation told newsmen in Abuja that his design for the Nigerian stand would as usual, be a departure from previous years.

"You recall we have never used the same design each year, it has been a new design for each year since 2007," he said. According to the NTDC boss, the stand design was carefully done to reflect the traditional and cultural values of a typical Nigerian setting. At the Nigerian stand, travel agents, transportation providers mostly airlines and marine operators as well as hoteliers are expected to attend.
