Tourism Fiji Announces Exciting New Fijian Tourism Expo and Appointment
|Tourism Fiji today announced the appointment of highly respected conference and events organiser, Sally Cooper. In Sally's new role as Events and MICE Director for Tourism Fiji, one of her primary responsibilities will be to organise and run the Fijian Tourism Expo (FTE), a new major international tourism industry event which is designed to promote and support Fiji's continuously growing tourism industry.|
The first FTE will take place at the new Sheraton Conference Centre in Denarau from 5-8 May 2014. Its focus will be to support and showcase local tourism operators, Fijian-made products and the unique Fijian culture to the world.
"It is the role of Tourism Fiji to provide a platform for our local industry to market itself to the world," said Rick Hamilton, CEO of Tourism Fiji. "Our focus will be to more effectively engage the Australian and New Zealand markets and to attract quality long-haul buyers from Asia, UK, Europe and the USA.
"The FTE program will be tailored to cater for the needs of local industry and deliver a unique Fijian experience. We will look after ALL service providers, big and small, and provide a more effective way of promoting Fiji as an international visitor destination of choice."
Mr Hamilton said Ms Cooper has extensive experience and the initiative and creativity to effectively develop FTE as a successful annual event.
"Sally enjoys an excellent reputation in the industry and has enormous contacts from the small operators to the big resorts. She is also highly regarded by the international tourism industry and will bring all her expertise to the FTE to ensure its success."
Ms Cooper said she was pleased to be working with Tourism Fiji in supporting such an important initiative which will deliver a more cost-effective and dynamic alternative for local tourism sellers to successfully communicate with international tourism wholesalers and operators.
