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)

It was a great to experience SPTE17 in Sydney for the first time and hope I will attend many more.  Meeting with the suppliers of Tourism, Hoteliers and Cruise products in Fiji and the South Pacific Islands that Fiji Airways services was very helpful in gaining knowledge to better promote Fiji and beyond in the Canadian market.  I look forward to working more closely with all of the suppliers that I met with in 2017 and look forward to Adelaide in 2018!

Coral Perry, Area Sales Manager (Fiji Airways, Canada)

It was really good to be do SPTE straight after ATE. Same city and location of the venue which made it very efficient for me. Something that I think is very important for all the buyers that travel from a long haul destination.

The SPTE show was very well organized. From the early phases with the Marcom ACE system to the day of event. The appointment time was good and breaks between the meetings had enough time (almost too long breaks).

Well done SPTO!
