FHTA Chief Executive Officer Fantasha Lockington says, “FHTA is excited to have Austrade on board for the return of HOTEC and launch of the Tourism Talanoa Symposium.”

Mrs Lockington adds, “this year’s events are all about providing an opportunity to reconnect suppliers with hoteliers post-COVID, and will introduce new and direct supply paths to the industry.”

Austrade Trade Commissioner, Pacific and Timor-Leste Sheila Lunter said” “HOTEC is an unmissable opportunity for Australian exporters to engage directly with the Fiji hospitality sector. We are delighted to partner with FHTA as the platinum sponsor for the event and we look forward to showcasing some of Australia’s finest food and beverage exporters at the event.
