Tourism Fiji has this week hosted suppliers at the 2018 Boutique Luxury Roadshow in Australia. Spread across four cities, the roadshow kicked off on Monday in Brisbane, before moving on to Sydney (23 October), Melbourne (24 October) and Adelaide (25 October).
Participating were 14 luxury boutique suppliers, including Likuliku, Kokomo and Royal Davui, all of whom were independent properties and not part of a global chain.
The frontline sellers were hand-picked by Tourism Fiji. In a speed-dating style format, each supplier was allocated eight minutes to showcase their product to small groups of agents. At each event, there was also a chance to win some luxury prizes. Demand was so high for the inaugural Boutique Luxury Roadshow that spaces were filled by consultants three months ahead of the roadshow dates.
The showcase received a positive response and great feedback from agents and suppliers, who said the format provided a valuable platform to discuss products and information.
Jenni Triffitt from Perchalla & Turner Travel Associates praised Tourism Fiji and the suppliers, saying “it was so well run, such high quality of suppliers”.
