Samoan suppliers have proved the importance they place on the New Zealand market, with twice as many taking in the NZ Roadshow than a year before.

Sonny Rivers, NZ sales and marketing representative for Samoa Tourism says 24 suppliers have taken part in the event, which wrapped up a four-city visit in Auckland last week.

Along with extra representation from hotels, including from the island of Savaii, Rivers says it was significant that the that the number of tour operators present increased from one in 2023 to four this year – Tour Samoa, Samoa Sunsation, Coconut Tours and Samoa Scenic. There was also a beach falé operator on the roadshow.

"We definitely have more variety than before and it shows how serious they are about this market and how much they want to engage with agents."

Rivers adds that the trade here has responded well, with a total of 280 plus attendees across Christchurch, Wellington, Hamilton and Auckland.
