Trinidad capitalises on World Cup

The Tourism Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago (TDC) has announced its promotional plans for maximizing Trinidad and Tobago’s presence in Germany for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.SOCA CARAVAN

Plans have been finalized for Trinidad and Tobago to have a “SOCA CARAVAN” at the finals. The Soca Caravan, essentially a booth highlighting tourism, sports, culture, trade and investment opportunities in Trinidad and Tobago, will be located in the three German cities where the Soca Warriors play - Dortmund, Nuremberg and Kaiserslautern.
Each city in Germany, where World Cup games are being played, is mandated by FIFA to hold a “Fanfest’ where giant screens showing every game “live” will act as the focal point for entertainment and activity for fans .The locations are ideal for the “SOCA CARAVAN” which will be at Dortmund June 8th- 10th , the Nuremberg Fanfest for June13th-15th and then Kaiserslautern from June17th -20th.
This booth will present Trinidad and Tobago in an exciting and interactive way including computers providing information about the twin island country’s many tourist attractions.

Perhaps the most significant aspect of Trinidad and Tobago’s presence at the FIFA World Cup 2006 is the sponsorship of the main WTA Media Centre in Berlin. Trinidad and Tobago will be the sole destination sponsor and the sole sponsor of the internet café and sports bar.

The media centre is being operated by World Travel Awards (WTA). This 24 hour internet café and Sports Bar will be located in Berlin for the duration of the event and will be located at the FIFA World Head Quarters in the Inter-Continental Hotel, Berlin. The home page on all computers, laptop and fixed screens in the internet café and connecting with the WTA servers will be of Trinidad and Tobago.
The sports bar will not only be showing World Cup football but also Formula One racing, Wimbledon Tennis, US Open Golf and other similar major international sporting events taking place during the period.

The hugely successful website has received over 10 million hits since it was launched earlier this year and it is now viewed by more than 130 different countries (from the Caribbean to the traditional metropolis of USA, UK & Canada to Croatia, China and South America)
