Tappoo executive director Kaushal Tappoo said: “We have always supported the awards and will continue to do so every year because it plays an important role in the tourism world.”
The awards ceremony, organised by Tourism Fiji and the awards committee, will be held on February 24 at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa.
Today at the Tourism Fiji office at Namaka the list of finalists will be announced.
Mr Tappoo stressed the fact that tourism had played a big and vital part in the running of their business.
“The Tappoo group believes in tourism because while our TappooCity complex and other stores does cater for our locals, a lot of our retail business is directed at tourists as well,” Mr Tappoo said.
He said: “We think it is a great event that keeps all the players in the tourism industry interested.”
“It does a good job on rewarding those who have worked hard in the year; it?s a big night for tourism and the Tappoo group is proud to be a part of that,” he said.
Apart from being amongst sponsors for this year’s AON Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards, the Tappoo Group will also be supplying the awards with wine on the big night.
