31.03.2009 Namibia Stand At ITB Honoured As Second Best Stand
CBS And Messe Berlin Present Best Exhibitor Award 2009
Frankfurt, March 2009.
Students of the Cologne Business School gave away the Best Exhibitor Award at the ITB in Berlin on Saturday, 14th March 2009. The Namibia Tourism Board stand was ranked second in the category “Africa” followed by Rwanda and Kenya. The Namibia stand presented itself in modern, dark design illuminated by large, colourful Namibia photos. Stylish leather armchairs and floor lamps created a relaxed lounge atmosphere.
Already for the 9th time, a team formed out of 30 future tourism managers of the Cologne Business School (CBS) - as a partner of the Messe Berlin - evaluated all stands at the ITB divided into eleven categories (Germany, Europe, Asia/Australia/Oceania, America/Caribbean, Near/Far East, Africa, Hotels, Carriers, Tour Operators as well as Travel Support/Media). Which stand presents its destination or business best? Which stand is the most informative offering the best service? These were the questions the student team had in mind during the first three days of the trade fair, assessing almost 11.000 single and joint stands. On Saturday evening, the three best stands were finally honoured in their respective categories receiving the “Best Exhibitor Award” during an award show.
