AFTER winning the Best Decorated Booth at the Fiji Tourism Expo 2017, Rivers Fiji was given a free booth at the Fijian Tourism Expo (FTE) 2018.

Rivers Fiji managing director Kasimiro Taukeinikoro, who was pleasantly surprised by the win, said: “Last year we did not plan to win and but it was indeed a great feeling to win! And we’re looking forward to doing even better with our booth this year.”

Mr Taukeinikoro said the win strengthened the existing business partnerships they had.

“Just the mere presence of our company annually reinforces and registers visual representations of Rivers Fiji Ltd that individuals/buyers recall which is used later in referrals and point of contact to potential customers,” he said.

Tourism Fiji CEO Matthew Stoeckel said each year, they set out to exceed expectations and improved the expo from the year before.

“It’s through the hard work of the exhibitors like Rivers Fiji that helps the event deliver such an incredible experience for our international buyers,” Mr Stoeckel said.

The winning booth was judged according to strict criteria but judges were won over by the team’s attention to detail, use of sounds for ambiance and overall authentic look of the Rivers Fiji booth.

Having participated for over a decade at the expo, Rivers Fiji say they keep coming back because the event brings new business opportunities for them.

The Fijian Tourism Expo 2018 will be held from April 10-12 at the Sheraton Fiji Resort & Spa on Denarau.

Rivers Fiji is a company that specialises in the Fiji adventure, offering unique river rafting and sea kayaking trips which provide incredible opportunities to experience remote highland villages, dense tropical forests and aqua-blue ocean alive with brilliant corals and wildlife.
