Tourism Fiji’s annual New Zealand roadshow is underway with 16 industry partners currently travelling the country to educate their local travel trade.    The roadshow kicked off in Christchurch on August 27.

They will visit the main centres of Wellington, Hamilton, Auckland and Auckland’s North Shore, with a total of 380 travel and wholesale agents registered to attend the events.

Matthew Stoeckel, Tourism Fiji chief executive officer says: “As Fiji’s second biggest tourism source market, New Zealand remains an important market for us.

“It is therefore essential that Tourism Fiji continues to inform and upskill our New Zealand trade partners, through forums such as the annual roadshow, to ensure they are well placed to sell destination Fiji.”

The New Zealand roadshow provides Fijian industry partners with the opportunity to inform local travel sellers about our products and establish strong relationships.

“The interest we’ve seen in attending the event from the 380-travel trade registered is a positive sign that Fiji remains a strong holiday destination for New Zealanders,” said Sonya Lawson, Tourism Fiji Regional Manager New Zealand.

“Not only does it have the most friendly and welcoming people, Fiji offers New Zealanders a diverse range of experiences, a tropical climate and is easily accessible with direct air services to Nadi from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch year-round,” Ms Lawson added.
