[13 July 2016:] Tourism Fiji is set to surprise and delight guests as they arrive at the AFTA National Travel Industry Awards this Saturday, 16 July 2016.
The NTIA is the most highly anticipated event in the travel industry calendar and Arrivals Sponsor Tourism Fiji won’t disappoint. Guests will be greeted by Fijian Warriors and a beautifully Fijian themed pontoon.
“There isn’t a more dynamic and fun way to being the 2016 NTIA Gala Dinner. I have no doubt guests will be warmed by the energetic and colourful Fijian welcome on the chilly winter’s evening,” said AFTA Chief Executive Jayson Westbury.
Carlah Walton, Regional Director Australia said; “Tourism Fiji is very proud to be partnering with AFTA for the NTIA Awards. Australia is Fiji's major source market and as such supporting the industry is an honour and a way to show our commitment to those who support our destination. After TC Winston it is imperative that Australian travellers continue to holiday in Fiji as this is the best way to support Fijians in their hour of need”.
The Gala Dinner will be held this Saturday 16 July at Darling Harbour.
Doors open at 5pm.
