The China Trade event was held on Tuesday, December 2nd, at the InterContinental Fiji’s WaterCourt Conference Center where Tourism Fiji in conjunction with Fiji Airways, Rosie Tours and Tour Managers provided a unique opportunity for agents from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan to expand their product base with more Fiji suppliers. Over 34 agents and 17 Suppliers (Hotels & Resorts) converged at InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa for the event, which focused on the growing Chinese tourism market to create and build networks and strengthen business relationships.
“The China Trade Day was an opportunity to showcase what Natadola Bay and the InterContinental Fiji has to offer for the Chinese market. This event gave us an opportunity to not only showcase the results of our IHG China Ready program but also gave us the opportunity to promote Fiji as an authentic and enriching tourism destination that can cater for Chinese guests and meet their needs and service requirements. Over 100 staff was trained early in the year as part of our IHG China Ready programme. The Resort has invested into Chinese speaking TV channels, Chinese translated website, rolled out Chinese menus, refreshed mini bars to allow for Chinese teas and also invested in Chinese speaking staff to be able to make the Resort China friendly. All of this combined with our amazing beach front setting makes the InterContinental Fiji an obvious choice for Chinese inspired events and travellers alike,” said Hudson Mitchell, Director of Leisure Sales & Marketing.
