Congratulations Tour Managers Fiji on your 10th Business Anniversary in China.

With 25 years in the Fijian Market, Tour Managers has, over the years, made innovative changes to meet the growing needs of its customers and maintain that competitive edge.

With the experienced guidance of managing director Damend Gounder, the company has positively evolved and contributed to the economy.

Tour Managers is a specialist Destination Management Company offering a wide range of exclusive services, facilities and value add products to FIT, Conferences.

The company is one of many the Fijian companies that have been founded on people’s trust and relationships.

Tour Managers have steadily increased their annual sales from China and estimated that total sales from China over the past 10 years would be quite significant.

A low estimate of the amount of gross sales the company has generated from China is around $60m in the past 10 years and is for travel packages only.

On average since 2017, the company handled close to 6500 guests per year. Many opt to stay at five-star resorts over a period of six nights.

As a company, Mr Gounder said they have foreseen that China will continue to grow and become one of major markets for Fiji in the future, sooner rather than later.

They are committed towards working in this market and teaming up with partners such as yourselves to realise the potential returns.

Statistics

Here are some of Tour Managers statistics for their Chinese markets:

  • The company has transported more than 60,000 visitors from China over the 10 years and arranged accommodation for around 55,000 of them.
  • Tour Managers has promoted Fiji in 20 cities throughout China and has sold more than 40 different tours.
  • Formed partnerships with more than 100 travel and trade organisations
  • Educated more than 3000 travel agents on the Fijian market.

Damend Gounder has reason to be proud.
