This was confirmed yesterday by the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for FETA, Bill Whiting adding that the event tonight at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa is fully booked with the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama as chief guest.

Both tourism icons were winners of a FETA award three years in a row which is a criteria for organisations to be inducted.

The Visionary and Lifetime Achievement Awards will also see one tourism leader be given the prestigious awards.

These awards recognise the major contribution they have made to tourism in Fiji for many years.

Meanwhile Mr Whiting said they had received over 200 entries where 70 finalists were selected for the 17 awards.

On the expansion of the awards, Mr Whiting said the Trustees had introduced three new awards two years ago – Fiji Pride, Emerging Tourism Leader and Tourism Leader Award.

Fiji Pride was to recognise individuals who had done something fantastic for tourism, Emerging Tourism Leader was for industry workers under 35 years of age who were showing skills in taking up management roles while Tourism Leader was for senior managers in tourism organisations who had made significant contributions to the industry.

Qualifications for Fiji Pride and Emerging Tourism Leader are for Fijian citizens only while Tourism Leader is open to all.

Mr Whiting said the criteria were changed for the 10 business or industry awards while the Culinary Services Award has been broadened where the emphasis of using Fijian produce more was brought in.

“That is important,” Mr Whiting said.

“The awards have not changed for some but the criteria have changed.”

The awards are made up of 10 industry awards, three individual awards, the Visionary and Lifetime Achiever Awards and two inductees for the Hall of Fame.ons.
