Tourism Fiji will offer its first ever Virtual Fijian Tourism Expo (FTE) next week, on 25 November 2020.

Traditionally, the FTE is an annual event that brings our international buyers and sellers together to do business here in Fiji. However, with border closure, staging a physical event was impossible for 2020. In response, a virtual event has been scheduled for our Australian and New Zealand markets.

Around 50 international buyers from these markets, and some 80 industry partners in Fiji will take part in virtual appointments and presentations.

“FTE is such an important event for Fiji’s tourism industry, it always has been. While we would have loved everyone to experience the Fijian tourism hospitality first-hand, I’m thrilled the event will still go ahead, be it virtually,” Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism and Transport Honourable Faiyaz Siddiq Koya said.

Event delegates will also get an update on how Fiji’s tourism industry “Is Ready” for borders to be reopen with presentations from Tourism Fiji on the destination’s Care Fiji Commitment (nation-wide programme to align industry with Fiji Government’s COVID-safe Guidelines) as well as its re-entry plans for its Australian and New Zealand markets.

Tourism Fiji Chairman, Andre Viljoen, said, “An unprecedented challenge needs an unprecedented solution, and that is just what Tourism Fiji has prepared though our Four Stage Re-entry Plan. It’s a comprehensive plan to ensure we re-enter our markets effectively. To achieve this, the organisation has its biggest ever consumer and trade campaign planned for Australia and New Zealand that will let everyone know (when its time) that Fiji’s open once again”.

At the Expo, the Event’s Platinum Sponsor, Fiji Airways, will present on the innovative Recovery Rebate Package Programme (RRP) that was announced by the Fijian Government to ensure that there are attractive packages in place for the destination’s re-entry into its international markets.
