Buzz over trade show

WITH only a month left for one of Fiji’s biggest annual trade events to commence, exhibitors are ready to showcase their products and services at this year’s HOTEC tradeshow.

It is hosted by Fiji Hotels and Tourism Association in collaboration with Fiji Chefs Association.

And according to Fiji Hotels and Tourism Association president Dixon Seeto, the tradeshow brings the international and local exhibitors together to communicate, compete, connect and learn from each other.

He said the event marked an important day in the industry’s event calendar.

“The tourism industry plays a huge role in our economy. It makes up 40 per cent of our GDP, the biggest foreign exchange earner. Exhibitions like these help boost the country’s economy,” Mr Seeto said.

Participants can look forward to different kinds of services and talents showcased by the participants.
