Fijian Tourism Expo A Chance To Learn And Forge New Ties

Since its inception the Fijian Tourism Expo (FTE) has grown from strength to strength.

As we all know tourism is vital to our economy.

Tourism Fiji is doing a great good job in facilitating meetings between buyers and sellers for the 2019 Expo.

As one of Fiji’s premier tourism industry events it not only assists and strengthens the current partnerships, but also forges new international relationships.

The expo is designed in such a way that it caters for the needs of all service providers, big and small, while effectively promoting Fiji as a tourism destination to the world.

Tourism contributes about 40 per cent to our national gross domestic product and provides employment as well.

In the past five years, 49 tourism projects were implemented in Fiji with a total value of $446 million.

The Tourism Fiji-organised premier event gathers about 158 international buyers and 14 international media, who will be meeting more than 300 exhibitors. Some travelled from as far as Ukraine, Italy and Netherlands and a number of other key industry partners are expected to be in attendance.

It is a good opportunity for small service providers to learn from big-scale operators.

Hopefully, this event exceeds all expectations of individual sellers and buyers.

Tourism operators should make use of this great platform to promote Fiji to the global market.

The three-day expo at the Sheraton Fiji Resort, Denarau, opened last night at the Grand Ballroom, Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa, Denarau.

It ends tomorrow.

 

Fiji Institute of Accountants Congress.

The Fiji Institute of Accountants (FIA) Congress begins tomorrow at the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort & Spa, Yanuca Island.

It features an exciting line-up of speakers with topics ranging from innovation, resilience, technology, culture, arts and social responsibility.

This event is also a good networking platform because of the range of professionals, industry leaders, ministers, government officials, executives and directors of corporate bodies, business owners and academics who will be in attendance.

There will also be some overseas delegates from our neighbouring Pacific Island countries in attendance.

With more than 500 participants in attendance, the topics that will be discussed will have a huge impact and contribute effectively to the professional and to some extent personal development of the participants.

The Congress, jointly sponsored by Vodafone and Westpac, ends on Saturday.
