TOURISM Fiji's New Zealand office was named the national Tourism Office of the Year in the prestigious Travel Digest Travel Industry Awards 2012 announced earlier this week.

The highly sought-after award was achieved through votes cast by travel and tourism professionals from agencies, wholesalers, colleges, tour operators, hospitality companies and tourism organisations from around New Zealand.

In a statement issued by the national tourism centre, Tourism Fiji's executive chairman David Pflieger said the accolade by the New Zealand tourism fraternity was remarkable.

"It is fantastic to have this industry recognition. New Zealand is such an important tourism market for Fiji and for the local tourism team to be chosen above all the other tourism offices in this competitive environment is a great achievement," he said.

Tourism Fiji's New Zealand regional director Sala Toganivalu said her team was honoured to receive the award.

"What makes this even more special is that we were chosen by our peers in the travel and tourism industry," she said.

Travel Digest has been in production for 33 years and is highly regarded as New Zealand's premier monthly travel industry magazine. It has a circulation of 1500 and a readership of over 6000.
