This year marked the third consecutive year for the event – a uniquely designed Fijian tourism experience for international buyers. Hosted by Tourism Fiji, the National Tourism Organization, the event provides a cross-sectoral platform for partners in the tourism industry to engage directly with international buyers and travel trade media.
