The paper studies the existence of exponential attractor for the Boussinesq equation with strong damping and clamped boundary condition . The main result is concerned with nonlinearities with supercritical growth. In that case, we construct a bounded absorbing set with further regularity and obtain quasi-stability estimates. Then the exponential attractor is established in natural energy space .
