This marked the opening of FlipTrip and Philippine Airline’s joint tourism promotions campaign in partnership with Miss Tourism International Angeli Gomez, supported by the Philippines Tourism Promotions Board.

Candidates from the previous batches of the Miss Tourism International pageant will go on a 13-day tour of the Philippine islands from July 1 to 13, 2014. The beauty queens will visit some of the Philippines’ most amazing destinations – Manila, Camarines Sur, Cebu, and Boracay.

The touring international beauty queens include Miss Vietnam Phan Hoang Thu, Miss Iceland Asdis Lisa Karlsdottir, Miss Finland Maria Rautio, Miss Czech Republic Lucie Klukava, and Miss New Zealand Kylie Miller.

Throughout the duration of their stay, the international guests will be hosted by local companies and government bodies, namely, West35 Eco Mountain Resort, CamSur Watersports Complex, The Provincial Government of Camarines Sur, Cebu City Tourism Commission, ANTHILL Fabric Gallery, Bambike, Island Souvenirs, loudbasstard, Olivia & Diego, Risque Designs, Sidlan. Special souvenirs were provided by novelty items store Quirks.

The press launch also provided an opportunity for Filipino partner companies to showcase their homegrown Filipino products in the event. Bambike’s bicycle made of bamboos and Quirks’ unique designs on various Filipino items were just some of the highlights in the featured event. The Filipino partners also provided gifts for the guests at the event, each sharing their company’s mission and the inspiration behind their locally-made and truly Filipino products.beauty_queens_1.png
