Tourism Fiji is confident that the 2018 Fijian Tour­ism Expo (FTE) is going to set a new record and provide an ideal environment for buyers and exhibitors to do business.

Tourism Fiji chief executive of­ficer Matthew Stoeckel said FTE has grown not only in the num­ber of interested participants but in terms of the quality of international buyers that have been attracted.

“This year’s event will be from April 10 to 12,” Mr Stoeckel said.

“It is another record year for us in terms of having more than 260 exhibitors and more than 180 buyers.

“We host buyers from all over the world and ensure that they also have an opportunity to expe­rience Fiji first hand.”

Tourism Fiji, Mr Stoeckel says, has a major a role in arranging event logistics and ensures buy­ers and sellers are connected through appointments in the two-day event.

The FTE’s main objective, he said, was to establish new part­nerships and strengthen exist­ing ones between exhibitors and buyers.

“Our role is to bring quality international buyers and media from our various key source markets and emerging ones to engage with our local partners in Fiji,” he said.

“It is an opportunity for our buyers to experience the best of Fiji.

“Preparation of the 2018 Expo is making good progress with the expo and are formalising ar­rangements to ensure that FTE is bigger and better than last year.”

He said Tourism Fiji assesses all applications to ensure that ex­hibitors and international buy­ers have a common interest and are evenly matched.
