HOTEC is back but bigger and better.

The Fiji Hotel & Tourism Association’s (FHTA) organised annual industry trade show – “HOTEC 2018” takes place again this year on November 1 and 2 at the Denarau Island Convention Centre (DICC) in Nadi.

FHTA’s chief executive officer Fantasha Lockington noted that as introduced for the first time last year, along with exhibitor booths, a range of tourism specific interactive programmes are planned for industry participants to attend, take part in and learn from.

“We have also been working with the Ministries of Tourism and Agriculture in a collaborative effort to further develop our agri-tourism linkages.

“HOTEC 2018 will provide a platform to address tourism’s produce demand with farmer supplies, connect hotels to supply chain opportunities and new produce varieties and promote the use of local produce through the creation of signature dishes that Fiji should be recognised for.”

There will be something on display or going on for everyone in the industry – IT, culinary skills, furniture and furnishings, gardens and outdoors, HR awareness sessions, barista competitions and tutorials, cocktails demos, solar trends, cleaning products, security options, wine displays and all sorts of food tasting to name a few.

“Whether you’re a supplier or work in the industry, HOTEC 2018 will be of interest to you.”


What people can expect at HOTEC

HOTEC is organised so that suppliers to the industry can showcase and demonstrate their latest products and services, meet with industry partners, customers and competitors and get first hand updates on the latest market trends, demands and opportunities. By providing an enabling environment, the trade show provides an ideal platform to generate stakeholder interest, promote awareness, create networking and business opportunities and ensure tourism products and services continue to develop and strengthen in the industry that involves people from across all segments.

A range of exhibitors who work in the industry will be represented this year with the addition of several new programmes being introduced to boost tourism education and showcase trade skills and new trends – all in one place.
