FOLLOWING the success of the annual Fijian Tourism Expo (FTE) this year, dates have already been set for next year's event.

Tourism Fiji yesterday announced the fete would be held from June 16 to 18 at the Denarau Island Convention Centre.

The venue was decided after a competitive tender process and organisers believe the centre has the capability to cater for an even bigger event.

Events director Sally Cooper said the interest in FTE 2015 had grown.

"We expect the event to be significantly larger in 2015 with the addition of more niche operators and service providers from the wider tourism industry," she said.

"Event organisers will work with a number of resorts to provide accommodation for the attendees of the event and will showcase a range of venues for the events and functions that are part of the main program.

"Pre and post-FTE familiarisation tours will also be offered to showcase the wider Fiji to visiting travel industry specialists."

Ms Cooper said they had timed the event to run prior to the Australian Tourism Expo.

"We hope to not only attract more long-haul buyers to Fiji but also give them an opportunity to understand and experience the great variety of tourism product we have to offer."
