MANILA, Philippines - The Philippines not only showed visitors at the Expo 2012 in Yeosu, South Korea why its more fun to visit the country. It also bagged one of the nine prestigious awards being given by the EXHIBITOR Magazine’s Expo 2012 Awards.

The Philippine Pavilion, which worked on the theme Islands of Diversity/Seas of Connectivity, won the Best Exhibit award.

"The Expo 2012 Award winners and honorable mentions represent some of the world’s best examples of how experiential design, technology, presentation, and storytelling come together to effectively communicate compelling messages," said Travis Stanton, editor of EXHIBITOR magazine.

The competition honored the most impressive work from the 2012 World’s Expo in Yeosu.
 
"These examples will hopefully inform and inspire today’s exhibit and event professionals — along with the next generation of face-to-face marketers. Because whether you’re creating an immense international pavilion or a small 10-by-10-foot exhibit, it’s often about making an impression, and the work on display in Yeosu does that in truly monumental and memorable ways," Stanton added.

Meanwhile, the Philippines also held a National Day presentation at the event that featured Filipino talents.
