Fiji’s largest trade event for the tourism and hospitality sectors, HOTEC, is here!

The event is an unparalleled opportunity for local and international business people in the hospitality, equipment, food & beverage, food service, and packaging industries to scope local markets, establish new trade relationships and broaden their presence within Fiji.

We are encouraging a range of exhibitors at this year’s HOTEC that will provide a variety of products and service options for visitors/tourism operators under one roof.

The two-day event will educate visitors with a series of mini workshops in areas including technology, guest experience, digital marketing, employment relations and the availability of fresh local produce to you.
The Fijian Cuisine Competition will be introduced in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture showcasing the culinary skills and talents of local chefs while promoting the use of locally grown produce in efforts to raise Fijian cuisine standards, recognize some key Fijian dishes and eventually use this to promote Fiji as a food destination.
