SPTE Seller Testimonial Seller Testimonial image

The revival of a South Pacific focused Tourism exchange was a welcome relief.
This event provided a platform where Pacific Island Tourism operators,  could at very little cost, meet with long haul partners to discuss and renew partnerships.
For the Edgewater Resort Resort & Spa, the opportunity to meet with key European partners is an important part of our business and SPTE helps to provide that opportunity. 
SPTO is to be commended on being able to put together a fantastic program for SPTE 2014. We are confident 2015 will be as successful event. – Emile Kairua, Edgewater Resort, Rarotonga, Cook Islands
