Agents invited to Samoa Roadshow

Agents are invited to learn how to ‘Holiday the Samoan Way’ at the upcoming Samoa Roadshow.

Hosted by Samoa Tourism Authority, the Australian Roadshow 2014 will visit Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney from 27 to 29 October.

Agents will have the opportunity to receive the latest industry and property updates, as well as meet representatives from some of Samoa’s most popular hotels and resorts during a fun and educational experience over breakfast. 

There will be Samoan performing arts as agents are updated on new developments in the Treasured Islands, including the much anticipated Sheraton Aggie Grey's Samoa properties and new boutique resorts which have opened along Upolu's magical south-coast, which many now refer to as the 'Romance Coast'. 

All agents who attend the event have the chance to win amazing prizes including a trip to Samoa.

Samoa Tourism recommends those agents who have not been to Samoa to attend as they will gain important selling tips for the country.

“Education is important for agents to understand Samoa’s unique offering for their clients and sell Samoa with confidence. Samoa is quickly gaining a reputation as the hottest emerging South Pacific destination for Australians,” a Samoa Tourism spokesperson said.

Recognizing the important role the Australian travel industry plays in building up Samoa’s destination profile, Samoa Tourism and its partners and look forward to networking with guests who will attend.
