The Tourism Fiji event took place in the Morrison Hotel, Dublin. Over 60 media and trade attended the evening which included a three-course meal and traditional Fijian singing, music and dancing.


The evening began with drinks and networking followed by a short address by Mr Jitoko Tikolevu, the Fiji High Commissioner to the UK. Andrew Sharpe and Ruth Lansdale (both Tourism Fiji) were in attendance. Andrew delivered a presentation which enlightened all attendees about the tropical islands of Fiji and the many extraordinary aspects of this perfect holiday destination.


Paul Cruttenden (Head of Trade Partnerships Cathay Pacific) was also in attendance and informed guests that Cathay Pacific now offer connecting flights from Dublin to Hong Kong and then directly on to Fiji. Debbie Lewis (Sales Manager Captain Cook Cruises, First Landings & Tokoriki) took guests on a journey around the numerous islands that offer luxurious accommodation options from villas to apartments. Throughout the evening guests joined the ‘Fiji Warriors’ on the floor and enjoyed music and songs, while tasting the traditional drink ‘Kava’.


Kevin Olphert (Click&Go) won the amazing prize of 2 return prem economy flights from Dublin to Hong Kong, return economy flights from Hong Kong to Nadi, 4-nights B&B hotel accommodation and 3 nights cruise.
