The biggest ever Solomon Islands tourism promotion staged in Australia, the joint Solomon Airlines and Solomon Islands Visitors Bureau Queensland and New South Wales road show has got off to a cracking start.
More than 40 of Queensland’s senior travel management, Brisbane media guests and VIPs crowded into Brisbane’s Hotel Urban on Monday night to meet the combined airline and national tourist office team and watch a performance provided by the Hageulu Panpipers from Isabel Province flown in especially for the promotion.
Dignitaries in attendance included the Solomon Islands High Commission’s Ms Jenny Barile, and Solomon Islands community representative Miller Apusi.
SIVB chairman Wilson Ne’e, SIVB CEO Josefa Tuamoto, Solomon Airlines head office marketing division manager Colin Sigimanu and Solomon Airlines’ regional director Australia, New Zealand and Asia, Victor Sharan also attended the event.
The Brisbane event was the first stop in a week-long promotion intended to play a two edge role in promoting both the national carrier’s soon to commence Sydney-Honiara direct service and also encourage Australians to holiday in the Solomon Islands.
The road show will also visit Sydney, Wollongong, Parramatta and Gosford.
