Visit Pacific fair set again for Sweden

The colourful travel fair in Malmö will attract public and trade for presentations, discussions, meetings.

The tour operator Tour Pacific, based in Helsingborg, Sweden, is organising the travel fair Visit Pacific at the event centre Malmö Live for the second time on March 3, from 10:00 to 16:00.

Offering a comprehensive lecture program, Visit Pacific’s exhibitors and partners will be coming from Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

Visitors can choose between around 30 talks in Swedish and English, at what is the only travel exhibition of its kind in the Nordic countries.

The first fair in February 2017 was successful for the organiser, with Tour Pacific pointing to “a lot of praise” from the 300 visitors and exhibitors of destinations and products from the Oceania countries.

“As Sweden’s leading organiser for this part of the world, we want to inspire the Swedes to get a feel for these amazing destinations when they’re already at home,” CEO Lars Jönsson explains.

“Together with our partners, we invite you to get a taste of what the countries can offer, listen to talks and meet representatives from travel agencies and suppliers. There will also be an opportunity to book time with one of our own travel experts and plan a future trip.”

Destinations on show
During the day, visitors will get a chance to meet representatives from countries such as Vanuatu, the Cook Islands and Papua New Guinea, and a caravan set up on site will be equipped by New Zealand Travel.

Visitors will be able to discover the remote volcanic Yasawa Islands in Fiji as well as cruise expeditions around Australia. A new exhibitor this year is the Sydney Opera House, which offers guided tours to music and theatre performances.

“We expect many people to book trips at the fair and we hope visitors from different parts of Sweden will want to come to Malmö for this unique opportunity,” Jönsson says.
