Maldives makes promotional debut at golf event
Maldives was advertised for the first time at a golf-centric event, the Gala dinner and reception of the Celebrity Cup, held at Celtic Manor Resort in Wales, United Kingdom.
The promotional event took place under the guidance of Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC), between July 13- 14.
Numerous star golfers hailing from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales partook in the event, which was also graced by celebrity vocalists, movie-stars, rugby athletes, entrepreneurs, and TV presenters.
During the event, MMPRC also extended the opportunity for lucky winners of a charity raffle to win a five-night holiday in Maldives. The prize, sponsored by home-grown resort brand Coco Collection, includes a three-night stay at the four-star Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu in Baa atoll and a two-night stay at the five-star Coco Bodu Hithi in North Male Atoll.
Visitors from the United Kingdom rank fifth among tourists choosing Maldives as their desired holiday destination, with as many as 57,647 arrivals recorded between January to May this year.
