First held in 2008 to create a trademark for Đà Nẵng’s tourism, the annual event helped the city win the title 'Asia's Leading Festival & Event Destination' at the World Travel Awards (WTA) in 2016. Not only presenting international friends with a dynamic image of Việt Nam in and Đà Nẵng, the event also helps to confirm the city as a young, friendly, and developing destination. The festival is a major event to attract tourists, lengthening their stay in Việt Nam.
After the success of previous festivals, the Đà Nẵng People's Committee wishes to collaborate with any qualified organisation or enterprise who can fully meet all the requirements to team up to host the event.
Applications for the DIFF 2023 co-organisers should be sent directly to the Đà Nẵng’s Department of Culture and Sports before November 12, 2022.
The festival is scheduled to take place from June 3, 2023 to July 8, 2023. The Hàn River port area will be the main location of the fireworks displays. A 17,000-seat grandstand will be set up at the venue for spectators.
The event will feature stunning firework performances of eight teams, including seven international and one from Đà Nẵng.
Before the interruption, in 2019, during one month of the DIFF (from June 1 to July 6), Đà Nẵng greeted nearly 1 million tourists. The revenue of tourism enterprises was estimated at more than VNĐ3,244 billion ($130,4 million). — VNS
