“Philippines is the center stage, the Filipino people are the performers and your support are the applause”, Those are the strong words by our Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez Jr. during the press launch of Philippine Department of Tourism and the Tourism Promotions Board yesterday , a day before the Philippine Travel Mart. They launched this new campaign that can attract millions of foreigner for next year 2015, the campaign “Visit the Philippines Year 2015”, will make sure that our foreign visitors will visit more, explore more and fall in love with the Philippines, because DOT and TPB will make sure that “It’s More Fun in the Philippines”.

The new campaign is all about us..the pinoys, its not just the destinations anymore, but the fun to be part of us, mingle with us or join the party with us. 2015 have a boombastic line up events that will take stage here in our soil, one of them is the Papal visit, the One Direction Concert, the Malasimbo Festival, the APEC summit, the events and festival happening in Boracay, Bohol, Cebu, Palawan and more. Its not just about festivals, its also about our UNESCO World Heritage Sites, these sites are well known here and we should invite them to visit and be captivated with the sights, sound and experience.

In line with the new campaign for 2015. DOT will collaborate with the Filipino people to enlist their events, festivals, expo or anything festive, you can log in and register to their revitalized website www.itsmorefuninthephilippines.com

You can jump right away here at PHL 2015 event calendar website - www.phl2015.itsmorefuninthephilippines.com , if you want your events and festival to be added in the national calendar of events of the Philippines. DOT will push this, promote your event and help get more visitors for you, because events organizers are also part of this campaign.

it’s a collaborative effort of our government and the people,. and I’m sure that User Generated Content submission will boost more the awareness of our events and festivals.

Heads up to Kabankalan City Sinulog Festival, Sampaloc, Quezon’s Bulihan Festival and our Philippine Toy Convention. We should list our events there for more fun and visitors traffic.

DOT and TPB keynote and launching the 2015 campaign

“What will truly sustain Visit the Philippines Year 2015 campaign are the people themselves. I enjoin the businesses, communities and locals, to play an active part in spreading and amplifying our messages, enticing would-be visitors to come visit our shores,” said Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez Jr.

Yes! the campaign comes also a new TVC that will air soon. I hope they can air this as early, so that many foreign visitors book their vacations at an early date.

Not just the beaches, the island or provinces, DOT makes some more push to attract visitors to check out our UNESCO World Heritage site. I’ve seen some but I haven’t been to more of it, but let’s add that to our travel bucket list.

Its more fun here!!
If you want to visit our country, just let me know and I can help you connect with DOT and the right people for your Philippine vacation.
