Isles of Smiles for PCOs in Fiji

July 3, 2014 MICE No Comments Email Email

InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa’s recent Professional Conference Organisers (PCO) famil was a ‘resounding success’ according to attendees.  

An enriching Fijian experience for PCO’s at InterContinental Fiji

The 3-day famil flew a selection of hand-picked PCO’s to the Fiji Islands, to showcase Fiji’s finest five-star property on Natadola Bay, the enriching culture of the islands, and the creative options available to groups looking for a destination event.

The exciting itinerary included visiting primary schools in the Natadola Bay community, discovering Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course – home of the PGA sanctioned Fiji International – themed dinners, a kokoda cooking class, guided tour of Batiri Village with traditional kava ceremony, and a special guest appearance by 11-time ASP World Tour Champion Kelly Slater.

“The InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa is an ideal destination for delegates; with our unbeatable location on one of the best beaches in the world, award-winning conferencing facilities, luxurious Spa InterContinental, championship golf course, and ‘In the Know’ cultural experiences,” said Mr. David Pearson, Director of MICE at InterContinental Fiji.

When asked to name the highlight of the famil Pearson didn’t hesitate: “Showcasing Fiji’s enriching culture – particularly the closing night dinner at our signature restaurant, Navo, which was complemented by a spectacular traditional fire show, and appearance by guest speaker Kelly Slater.”

Feedback from famil participants has been overwhelmingly positive; “Experiencing firsthand the warm, gentle nature of the Fijian people was incredible. Natadola Bay is an idyllic location and the InterContinental Fiji team is a credit to the industry; undoubtedly their strongest selling points,” participants commented.

“This PCO famil not only gave us a platform to showcase the extraordinary MICE experiences Natadola Bay has to offer, but most importantly it gave us the chance to promote Fiji as an authentic and enriching MICE destination,” stated Pearson. “Introducing PCO’s of this caliber to the FijiIslands brings immeasurable potential for the Fiji’s tourism industry including ground operators, tour companies, and DMC’s.”

InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa overlooks the azure waters of NatadolaBeach – one of the best beaches in the world, and Fiji’s finest beach. Spread across 35 acres of tropical gardens, the resort offers all of the facilities and services expected of a luxury international resort.
