The Vanuatu Tourism Office announces the second Vanuatu Travel Expo, to be held at Warwick Le Lagon Resort on 29th August 2018 after the inaugural expo held last year at Iririki Island Resort.
With an aim to bring the local Port Vila community to talk and meet with tourism operators from all over Vanuatu, Mrs Adela Issachar Aru, CEO of the Vanuatu Tourism Office adds, “We want to encourage our local community to get out and about and explore all that Vanuatu has to offer. We all know that Vanuatu is home to many wonderful experiences that are unique in the world, and we want to take this opportunity to encourage our own people to enjoy these very experiences, promoting domestic tourism within Vanuatu”.
The travel expo is a free event happening a day before Tok Tok Vanuatu bringing the largest number of Vanuatu Tourism operators, Sellers and Buyers, across both local and international regions.
Mrs Adela Issachar Aru further delivers, “It would be a loss for the tourism industry to disregard a growing domestic market and so we will continue to add an additional day to our TOK TOK event to allow our local tourism operators to showcase their products directly to a market just sitting at the doorstep”. This market is a very important segment because it connects the market access opportunity for the local people, expatriate communities, government civil servants, non-profitable organisations and other stakeholders to pay a visit and see what accommodation operator and activities are available in the different islands of Vanuatu. This makes it easier for the domestic traveller to be able to prepare their booking and internal travels within Vanuatu.
All 6 provincial tourism offices will be at the show ready to help the public understand how they can experience their special areas of Vanuatu, at a reasonable price fit for the domestic traveller.
