A range of industry partners from Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Europe, USA and Asia will be invited to attend this key opportunity to see recent developments in the destination firsthand.
Prior to the event, two of Vanuatu’s biggest properties, Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu and Iririki Island Resort and Spa will be re-opening. Iririki Island Resort and Spa has undertaken an extensive refurbishment, and new builds such as the Ramada Resort Akiriki will also be completed.
Vanuatu’s national carrier, Air Vanuatu, has also taken delivery and ownership of its new Boeing 737-800 aircraft, introducing a new level of comfort across the Pacific skies with the spacious ‘Sky Interior’. Tok Tok participants will be able to experience this firsthand, ensuring their Vanuatu experience starts as soon as they board the plane.
Tok Tok will also follow the launch of a major marketing campaign set for May which will aim to raise consumer awareness of the destination and recover visitor numbers.
The tradeshow will be an ideal opportunity for travel industry buyers to leverage renewed interest in the destination by meeting with local suppliers, exchanging ideas and learning about upcoming opportunities in Vanuatu.
Pre and post touring will be available for all delegates who wish to experience other highlights across Vanuatu’s 83 incredible islands.
Vanuatu Tourism Office’s general manager, Linda Kalpoi said Tok Tok this year is more important than ever following a challenging 12 months.
“It’s no secret that Vanuatu has faced some difficult times over the last year and Tok Tok is the ideal place for us to come together as an industry, show the wholesalers how resilient Vanuatu is and let them see for themselves that Vanuatu is not only open but our tourism industry is moving forward in leaps and bounds.”
Pre and post tour information will be released over the coming months. Wholesalers should keep an eye out for when Tok Tok registration opens.
