ABOUT 150 international buyers will be attending the inaugural Fijian Tourism Expo on Denarau next week.

And to welcome them to our shores, a cocktail function would be held at Raddison Blu Resort on Monday night, a statement from Tourism Fiji said.

Minister for Tourism Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum will officially open the expo the following morning at the Denarau Island Convention Centre.

The statement said the expo would give about 230 tourism operators from across Fiji an opportunity to present their products and services to buyers from Fiji's largest international markets, including Australia, New Zealand, the US, Britain, Europe, China, South Korea and India.

"In conjunction with the expo for tourism operators, the Fijian Tourism Expo provides the local industry an opportunity to showcase their products and services."

"In addition to attending the expo, many of the international buyers will get to experience Fiji first-hand via a wide range of familiarisation trips being conducted both before and after the expo. This will give the international representatives an ideal opportunity to understand what Fiji has to offer by getting out and experiencing it for themselves."

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the expo would bring international travel buyers and media under one roof where they could discover first-hand everything Fiji had to offer.

The Fijian Tourism Expo would be held from May 5 to 8 at the new Denarau Island Convention Centre.
