PNGTPA's successful return to ITB

The Papua New Guinea Tourism Promotion Authority (PNG TPA) has marked a triumphant return to the prestigious Internationale Tourismus Börse or ITB Berlin after a five-year absence.

ITB Berlin is the world’s largest tourism trade fair and provides a unique opportunity to learn about different countries and regions all over the globe in one place.

Under the theme “Define the World of Travel Together,” PNGTPA reaffirms its commitment to showcasing the unique and diverse offerings of Papua New Guinea to the European market.

Recognizing the significance of ITB Berlin as a vital platform for fostering international understanding, cultural exchange, and peace through travel, PNG TPA rekindles connections and showcases its unique offerings. With over 5,500 exhibitors from 170 countries, this year’s event promises to be a beacon of hope for the travel industry’s revival.

Supported by industry stalwarts like Bob Bates of Trans Niugini Tours and Wako Napasu from Country Tours, PNGTPA stands ready to reintroduce Papua New Guinea as the destination of a million different journeys. 

Led by Chief Executive Officer, Eric Mossman and Executive Manager Joel Keimelo, the PNG delegation marks a significant moment for the country’s tourism industry.

Despite challenges posed by negative media publicity, the demand to explore Papua New Guinea remains unwavering in the European market. The allure of its pristine landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and warm hospitality continues to captivate European travellers.

As the Euro performs strongly, Europeans are increasingly curious about Papua New Guinea. The country offers an authentic and unforgettable experience, from vibrant tribal cultures to untouched rainforests, beckoning those seeking adventure, culture, and natural beauty.
