TOPEX Conference Registrations Open

The programme is fixed, dates are confirmed and registrations are now open for the Top Executives (TOPEX) Conference 2016.

The annual convention is organised by the Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation (FCEF).

It will be held on October 14 and 15 at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa on Denarau Island with the theme: “Expanding the Possibilities: A Sustainable and Resilient Nation”.

More than 150 senior executives are expected to converge for the annual gathering.

FCEF President, Himen Chandra, said preparations for the conference started a few months back as they had to confirm the topics and the speakers.

“It takes time to get international speakers and doesn’t happen overnight,” he said.

Mr Chandra said they try to get international speakers so that the local executives have the chance to share experiences and learn from these foreign speakers.

TOPEX organising committee chairperson, Kameli Batimeti, emphasised the conference is an avenue for executives to download best practices from around the world soaking up as much information as possible.

He said their theme ties in with the Tropical Cyclone Winston which devastated the country on February 20.

 

Sponsorship

The conference organising committee received a boost yesterday with a continuing sponsorship support from Asco Motors which handed over $5000.

In handing over the cheque, Asco Human Resources manager, Avnit Sundar, gave Asco Motors’ commitment to continuing support for the TOPEX.

Meanwhile, Mr Chandra said they will have a few more sponsors coming through in the coming weeks.

“We have a few big ones as well and we should tie everything in within a week or two in terms of sponsorship,” he said.

He said sponsors played a very significant role because without them, conferences of such magnitude cannot be organised.
