The South Pacific Tourism Exchange held in Auckland, New Zealand earlier this month was one of the best.
South Pacific Tourism Organisation Chief Executive Officer, Chris Cocker says it’s one of the best they’ve convened in recent years.
The SPTE he says attracted 62 buyers or travel agents from 14 countries around the world and 94 sellers or tourism operators from 17 of our Pacific Island member countries and the New Zealand Maori tourism businesses.
Cocker says they’ve seen received positive feedback from participants with the event a roaring success.
The SPTE is convened annually by SPTO to generate increased business opportunities and incentives.
Cocker says members who participated as sellers were pleased with the quality of buyers or travel agents who attended.
Meanwhile, Rosie Holidays General Manager, Eroni Puamau, who attended the event commended the SPTO for the use of the Marcom Connect appointment scheduling software, used to book meetings at the SPTE, and for the set-up of the meeting areas that were accessible for participants.
The venue and dates for the 2020 SPTE will be confirmed in the coming months.
