The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism has announced yesterday the Fijian Tourism Expo (FTE) would be held on May 4 and 5 May next year.

FTE is Fiji’s annual business-to-business travel trade event. The two-day event is expected to attract close to 150 international buyers from over 20 countries to meet and do business with Fiji’s tourism industry operators.

Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Lands and Mineral Resources Faiyaz Koya, said that FTE was Tourism Fiji’s premier trade event.

It placed Fiji in the spotlight of the international travel trade, showcasing the best of the Fijian tourism industry to the global travel market.

“FTE brings the international travel trade right to the doorstep of local tourism industry operators. It gives them valuable first-hand experience of Fiji so that they are better equipped to encourage their clients to choose Fiji as their next holiday destination.”

Tourism Fiji’s chief executive officer  Matthew Stoeckel said a focus of FTE 2017 would be in developing additional familiarisations.

This are for the international travel trade before and after FTE, to further enhance their first-hand knowledge of the destination.

“FTE 2017 is about building on the success of last year’s event through the active participation of our industry partners who we encourage to take advantage of this world-class expo” he said.

FTE 2017 will be held prior to Trenz 2017 in New Zealand and the Australian Tourism Exchange 2017.

Further details regarding FTE 2017 will be released in the coming months.
