The Tourism Ministry’s Wonderful Indonesia campaign received recognition as 2017 Best Exhibitor at the Internationale Tourismus Borse (ITB) in Berlin, Germany, on Sunday.

Held on March 8-12, the exhibition was attended by 187 countries, 10,000 exhibitors and 180,000 visitors.

This year, Wonderful Indonesia's 487-square-meter pavilion showcased traditional arts, such as Papuan, Balinese and Acehnese dances. The pavilion was said to have outshined South Korea’s Imagine and Thailand’s Amazing campaigns.

“[This achievement] boosted the confidence [of Indonesian tourism players] as it proves we have the capacity and skill and can compete [in a global setting]," he said.

Prior to this, the Wonderful Indonesia tourism campaign received similar exhibitor awards at last year's ITB. (jes/kes)
