Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort Hosts the ONOC 42nd Annual General Assembly

Nadi, Fiji – May 3rd 2022 – The Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort are proud hosts of the Oceania National Olympic Committees (ONOC) 42nd Annual General Assembly. The newly renovated resort welcomed delegates from 17 different National Olympic Committees and six Associate Members from 29 April to 4 May.

The annual ONOC General Assembly is scheduled at the turn of every quadrennial Olympic cycle – one every four years, where it holds elections, reviews, and approves budgetary and financial reports to ensure athletes remain at the heart of the Olympic Movement in Oceania and that sport and physical activity are promoted in the Continent.

The Sheraton Fiji Golf and Beach Resort associates and ONOC team welcomed the International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach, who made a special visit to Fiji to attend the final night and President’s Dinner at the resort’s Golden Ballroom.

ONOC has achieved one of its biggest milestones in establishing a new headquarters in Suva in which President Thomas Bach will also be the Chief Guest at the event and have the honour of opening the new establishment.

Neeraj Chadha, Multi-Property Vice President – Fiji & Samoa, Marriott International and General Manager of Westin & Sheraton Resorts, Fiji Complex said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to host an important five-day conference for ONOC. Hosting events of such calibre and the attendance of the IOC President Thomas Bach, speak volumes about Fiji’s capacity to host such conferences. As Fiji’s largest integrated resort with world-class conferencing facilities, we are optimistic about the future to host more events like these.”

The first ONOC Annual General Assembly was held at the Sheraton Fiji Resort & Spa in 2013.

This year is the second ONOC Annual General Assembly to be held at the revitalised Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort.
