SPTE Buyer Testimonial

Buyer Testimonial Image

I am attending SPTE in order to get a good insight into product news and new products from the South Pacific region. I am very supportive of one event representing the whole region. The combination with ATE works perfectly for me as a European buyer, taking into account the travel distances from Europe”.– Sebastian Martens (FTI Touristik)
