Westpac Fiji has signed on as the Gold spon­sor for the Fijian Tourism Expo 2022.

Tourism Fiji’s annual pre­mier event will take place at the Denarau Island Confer­ence Centre from May 11-13.

The sponsorship is worth $45,000 as this year’s expo will be the first face-to-face event since 2019.

Westpac Fiji chief executive officer, Shane Smith, said: “We recognise the significance of this event to Fiji’s economy especially now when our tour­ism industry is getting back on its feet.

“We appreciate the work that Tourism Fiji is doing to bring more visitors to our shores and are proud to support that work through sponsorship of this important expo.”

Tourism Fiji chief executive officer, Brent Hill, said the expo allowed 100 international buyers including internation­al media to meet and do busi­ness with exhibiting compa­nies in Fiji.

The event was aimed at creat­ing awareness of Fiji as a tour­ism destination to the global travel market.

“This event is crucial for Fiji’s tourism industry who find great value in the appoint­ments and meetings they have at the event,” he said.

Around 500 people will be part of the event which is a significant undertaking and could not take off the ground without the support of their partners.

“This year we have a range of high value international buyers from Australia, New Zealand, Europe and USA and we’re excited to be welcoming all of them back to Fiji in May. We are very thankful to West­pac for their support and be­lief in the recovery of the tour­ism industry,” Mr Brent said.
