The General Manager of Stevensons at Manase, Megan Bradney, enjoyed every bit of the exhibition.
“It gives the travel agents an idea of how things are in Samoa in the tourism sector, so that people can formulate and decide where they want to spend their holidays, not only in Upolu but also in Savai’i,” said Megan.
“This is a great way of showcasing Samoa to the rest of the world. This is a great opportunity for hoteliers both from Upolu and Savaii to show and get the word and name out there for people to know.
“It helps us to get the name out and also one-on-one appointments with the providers and buyers so we can tell them a bit about each hotelier has to offer and also an update of where things are.
“For us at Stevensons, this is an opportunity for us to tell our providers where we are now and update them with work that we do. We’ve built new villas and we are almost finished with our infinity pool.”
Fa’aso’otauloa Paulina Theresa Schwalger from the Sesilia’s Bayview Bungalows shared the same views.
Sesilia’s Bayview Bungalow is located on the Lava field at Saleaula Savaii.
“For us, we always look forward to the Samoa tourism Exchange as it gives us the opportunity to showcase and tell other buyers about our place, location and what we can offer.
“It provides a platform for us to show and promote our work with the hope to getting more tourists and visitors in the future.
