PNGBD & Kokoda Trekking Adventure – winners of the “Best Booth Award”

They say winners are grinners as we certainly found this phrase fitting yesterday after being declared as the winners of the Best Booth Award on Saturday night during the closing dinner at the Holiday Inn.

Yesterday, Sunday 7th March, was the last day of the three-day “Lukim PNG Nau expo which commenced on Friday. Everyone in our booth was grinning from ear to ear and that had only got something to do with the award. Our day started well and we left with a good feeling after that.

For the best display, the award included a price advertising valued at K5000 courtesy of the Media council of Papua New Guinea.

Five exhibitors including PNGBD & Kokoda Trekking Adventure were nominated for the best display award and PNGBD came out the winner.

The judges included David Conn, the President of the Port Moresby Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Glen Armstrong from the Media Council of Papua New Guinea.

Judging criteria was based on public interaction, presentation and display.

The expo was such a success that the organizers and the sponsors have expressed having it again next year.

"This amazing. I didn't expect to see so many people. It was our first and it has been a tremendous success," Garry Seddon, President of the PNGTIA said during the closing dinner.

"It has been the biggest, best - our mission accomplished. There is no doubt that this expo is firmly established. The future is very bright," he added.

"We want to be involved in success. It is hoped to be bigger and better next year," David Conn said.

The encouragement award went to Minj Motel and Kundiawa Hotel.

PNGBD and Kokoda Trekking Adventure take this opportunity to thank the PNG Tourism Industry, PNG Tourism and Promotion Authority, and the organizing committee including sponsors for making the show available.

“We would especially like to thank the Media Council of Papua New Guinea for making the award available through this exhibition.”
