National carrier confirmed as platinum sponsor for Tourism Showcase
Fiji Airways, Fiji’s National Airline, is confirmed as the Platinum sponsor of Fiji’s biggest tourism showcase, the Fijian Tourism Expo (FTE), for the third consecutive year.
FTE, hosted by Tourism Fiji, has become a key event for the Fijian tourism industry that aims to enhance the awareness of Fiji as a premier vacation destination to the global travel market. Tourism Fiji’s Executive Chairman, Mr Truman Bradley says Fiji Airways has been a strategic and important partner to help realise the objectives of FTE since the inaugural event in 2014.
“Tourism Fiji values the support of the National Carrier and the strong relationship that we have established by working together over the years to make the Fijian Tourism Expo the most anticipated tourism event in Fiji for both international buyers & media and our industry stakeholders, who make the event what it really is – a showcase of the unique tourism products and services that Fiji has to offer its visitors,” Mr Bradley says.
“We are excited to again work hand-in-hand with Fiji Airways, as well as other industry stakeholders, as Team Fiji to make FTE 2016 a success,” he adds.
FTE has proven to be a solid platform for developing Fiji’s tourism industry and an avenue to strengthen existing partnerships and build new business relationships.
Fiji Airways’ Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Mr Andre Viljoen says, “We are delighted to play a part in the biggest tourism expo in Fiji. At the airline which brings in close to 70% of all visitors to Fiji, we are a major stakeholder in the tourism industry. Our goal is the same as Tourism Fiji – to help increase visitor arrivals to our home. It is a responsibility we take seriously, and our sponsorship of the FTE reflects this commitment.
Registrations for FTE 2016 closes this Friday, 1 April, with booking appointments to be announced the week after.
