Calgary, Canada – The Philippine Consulate General in Calgary is inviting the public to visit the Philippine booth (#243) at the upcoming Outdoor Adventure and Travel Show (OATS) to be held in the BMO Centre, Stampede Park, Calgary from 21 to 22 March 2020.
The Philippine Department of Tourism (PDOT) in San Francisco, which oversees the Philippine tourism promotion in the province of Alberta, Canada, and the Consulate will showcase the Philippines as a travel and adventure destination for the Canadian public.
Over the years, the Canada market has significantly contributed to the tourism industry in the Philippines. With about 226,000 Canadian tourists visiting the Philippines in 2018, Canada was the Philippines’ seventh top source of tourists that year.
Billed as the largest consumer show in Western Canada, more than 200 exhibitors are expected to join the show this year.
The Consulate also invites the public to watch the “Be Part of the Fun Forever” presentation at the International Travel Theatre on 22 March to learn more about the Philippines. Kids are also encouraged to join the “Junior Outdoor Adventure Program”, a scavenger hunt activity at OATS, where they will have a chance to win special and fun prizes.
