INDIAN travel agents say they are excited to be in Fiji after hearing stories about the country back in their home country.
Mumbai-based Sunrise Travel agent Kanan Fotedar said Fiji had a lot to offer to the Indian travellers despite its location.
She said the climate, untouched natural vegetation and the many tourism attractions had put Fiji alongside the top holiday destinations in the world.
"It's very nice and relaxing feeling here, meeting easy-going people and I feel it's home away from home," Mrs Fotedar said.
Trans Globe travel agent Sanjay Mehta of Gujarat State said the trade show was nicely organised, enabling the travel agents to learn details about Fiji.
"Personally for me I have never known Fiji in detail until this visit. Not many people had in mind that Fiji is the place to go when it comes to holiday destinations. There are many Indians here who would definitely help me to promote Fiji," he said.
"It will take time for people to come but with more promotions, advertisements and Bollywood coming to Fiji, it will help to promote more travellers to visit Fiji," he said.
Mr Mehta said location and the high fares would be one of the challenges faced by the Indian travellers.
"Definitely the high end spenders will surely come and so will the honeymooners.
"Fiji has fantastic resorts, good food and I don't see any problems in attracting more Indian travellers to come to Fiji."
Mrs Fotedar said connecting flights was also one of the challenges faced by the travellers.
"The flight connection are not that good, we will need a transit visa if we come through to Auckland or Australia and coming from Hong Kong, the transit time is too long so I think flights connectivity needs a drastic improvements to promote Fiji," she said.
