South Pacific Tourism Exchange

Miss Pacific co-hosts SPTE

Our very own Miss Papua New Guinea also known as Miss Pacific, Josie Nicholas, was in part of the fore-front representing the Pacific on an international stage.

The South Pacific Tourism Exchange (SPTE) under the leadership of the Pacific Tourism Organization (SPTO) is an annual travel trade show. It is used as a platform for Pacific Island partners to showcase their products and connect with international buyers from around the world.

The SPTE is the largest annual Business to Business tourism event organized by the South Pacific Organisation for the Pacific islands. It is a platform for sellers, which facilitates collaboration between tourism service providers, national tourism offices of SPTO member countries and international buyers including travel agents and tour operators from around the world.

A majority of participants expressed their gratification with the two-day event and their commitment to participation in the next SPTE.

A majority of the participants had established new networks, clients and contacts at the event and had gained new information, with a number of buyers securing actual bookings, contracts and package deals.
