European Trade shows


Bonaire was well represented at the Duikvaker trade show in February. A Bonaire Square was built in collaboration with the private sector. The Bonaire Square visitors had the opportunity to enjoy a Bonairean beverage. On the Saturday, prizes were awarded to the winners of the Bonaire contest in Duiken magazine. During the trade show video clips were made that drew a lot of attention and had a high reach when they were posted on Facebook. If you also want to participate in the 2017 Duikvaker trade show, please send an email before June 1st to europe@tourismbonaire.com.
