Partnership Opportunities

The South Pacific Tourism Exchange (SPTE) will offer your organisation the opportunity to enhance its position as a valuable partner to an industry that is the lifeline of many Pacific Islanders. The enhancement of such a partnership can be made possible through partnering with us.

Work with us

The South Pacific Tourism Exchange is SPTO’s premier trade event involving its member countries, industry members and international partners.

The concept of the South Pacific Tourism Exchange (SPTE) was born due to the need to offer a one-stop shop to valued international travel partners to meet our regional tourism products and suppliers from the islands. It offers the convenience of meeting all Pacific island destinations and a cost-effective platform for our Pacific Island partners to travel from all corners of the Pacific to the location to exchange their exciting products with buyers from all across the globe.

In collaboration with Fiji’s Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation (MTCA) and Tourism Fiji, the SPTO will convene SPTE 2024 ahead of the Fijian Tourism Expo. FTE is scheduled for 6-7 May, also in Nadi, Fiji.

The last SPTE was held in Christchurch, New Zealand and had more than 200 participants comprising international wholesalers, travel agencies and online travel agencies, national tourism organisations, destination and product market representatives, inbound tour operators, regional airlines, hotel operators, and tour and excursion operators. SPTE 2023 included sellers from across the Pacific, while the buyers were from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and the Solomon Islands, along with those from long-haul markets like the USA, Germany, Singapore, Korea and Switzerland. The success of SPTE 2023 has ignited anticipation within the industry, making SPTE 2024 a highly awaited event. The event’s impact on the travel landscape promises to be substantial, fostering new partnerships and driving the growth of the global tourism sector.

With SPTE 2023 expected to be bigger than previous events, we are delighted to cordially invite you to be a major sponsor. Through your partnership, your organisation will reach a unique audience of key tourism stakeholders from across the world.
Some of the many benefits of sponsoring this event include the following:

  • Promoting your organisation to attendees from various parts of the world
  • Boost and reinforce your branding
  • Boosted credibility among industry peers
  • Build your network and generate leads

To have a stronger presence in the tourism sector across the region, the South Pacific Tourism Exchange provides the perfect platform in which you could further strengthen communication and relationships across our Pacific Island membership.
