THIS year's South Pacific Tourism Exchange in Melbourne, Australia, is expected to be bigger and more successful than previous exchange events.

South Pacific Tourism Organisation CEO Ilisoni Vuidreketi said they had secured partnership with the Australian Tourism Organisation for the event from June 19-20, adding the Australian Tourism Exchange event would be held after the Pacific exchange at the same venue.

This, he said, would boost tourist numbers in the region.

"Australian is one of the biggest source markets in the region and that direct access flights from Australia to Fiji was the highest in the region. We are encouraging tourism wholesalers, travel agents that sell and package Pacific Island tourism products to register for the exchange right away.

"To avoid a mad rush and even disappointment, buyers for the event should take the opportunity to register for the event now.

"Registration is simple and our marketing team led by Alisi Lutu has mapped out the registration processes to enable attendance at the event," he said.
