Samoa will be tempting Aussies this winter to visit Samoa, as the Beautiful Samoa Australia Roadshow to begin visits this week in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
Up to 12 suppliers and service operators are first travelling to Brisbane with the Samoa Tourism Authority to further showcase the beauty of Samoa and why industry professionals in Australia and New Zealand should have their clients choose and visit Samoa this year dubbed by the United Nations as the the year of ‘Sustainable Tourism’.
Papali’i Sonja Hunter, CEO of Samoa Tourism Authority says that the Beautiful Samoa Australia and NZ Roadshow is one of the most anticipated events during the calendar year with industry partners and associates being key to shaping the Samoan tourism industry.
“We are thankful to these two source markets for helping us get to where we are today. The roadshow allows us to engage with our partners in both countries to improve and further discuss strategies on how best to meet the needs of the different types of travelers Samoa attracts.
“We look forward each year to the roadshow when we meet with the movers and shakers from our key source markets, as we have listened and implemented their recommendations - the results speak for themselves with visitor numbers steadily rising each year. We are looking forward to hitting Australian and NZ shores and continuing that dialogue.” Says Papali’i.
