AIME update: Unique meetings and conferences in Samoa


Samoa lends its stunning scenery and enriching experiences to any meeting, conference or sporting event that comes to its shores. A wide range of meeting facilities are available including the fully equipped Samoa Conference Centre which hosted UN SIDS 2014, the newly refurbished Conference Fale at Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Resort, the Conference Centre and Board Room facilities at Tanoa Tusitala Hotel or, for a more unique location, there are options to gather in a traditional meeting house. Samoan cultural and outdoor experiences can be incorporated into a programme to create a memorable event – all easily accessible from Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland.

Samoa Conference Centre is located in the heart of downtown Apia with easy access to all major sites, restaurants, cafes and Apia harbour. Opened in 2011 the venue can host up to 450 guests for a major event or conference. The air-conditioned centre is fully equipped with interpreter rooms, video conference system, PA system, PPT system and two LED screens.

Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Resort re-opened on 15 January 2015, the fully refurbished 133 guest room resort is conveniently located five minutes from Faleolo International Airport. The resort’s Conference Fale allows delegates to appreciate the beautiful surroundings and hold meetings in natural daylight, hosting up to 65 guests in classroom style. The resort provides professional event coordinators to streamline the planning process.

Tanoa Tusitala Hotel offers multiple conference and meeting facilities for groups of up to 250 delegates, located in Apia just a five-minute walk from the central business district. The hotel’s meeting facilities include the Conference Centre, Conference Fale and Boardroom. The Conference Centre can host up to 250 people and has the ability to be divided up into four separate rooms for smaller meetings. The Conference Fale is a self-contained venue situated in the middle of the property and can host up to 50 people. The Board Room can host up to 20 people.

For a more informal meeting or event, an open-sided traditional meeting fale can be requested and an event co-ordinator procured to organise all the requirements. For a truly Samoan experience, a Fia Fia night can be attended or organised and will include traditional Samoan food and a celebration of Samoan culture through song and dance. Samoa is an island paradise with excellent diving, snorkelling and outdoor hiking and cycling opportunities such activities can be arranged by hotels and ground handlers organising the event or meeting.
