By Nahrain John @karryontravel08 Nov 2018Hello Fiji – that’s not just the hashtag for the 2018 Helloworld Travel Frontliners Forum (#helloFiji2018), it’s the genuine feeling of excitment & appreciation among all 500 attendees.Helloworld Travel consultants, their families and their closest supplier friends received a warm Fijian welcoming to the South Pacific island today (Thursday 8 November), with locals embracing their Aussie visitors from the moment they arrived at Nadi Airport.Large digital ‘Helloworld Travel’ signs filled the international arrivals terminal, giving attendees a sense of home at the busy gateway.WELCOME TO FIJI @helloworldau! Such a warm welcome at Nadi Airport. @TourismFiji #fiji #helloworldtravel #hellofiji #helloworldau pic.twitter.com/WqdmAfCXwQ— KARRYON (@karryontravel) November 8, 2018As they approached the airport exit, they each received a Fijian shell lei and were ushed onto an air conditioned Tourism Transport Fiji (TTF) bus for convenient door-to-door transportation to Denarau.A quick shower later, hundreds of consultants and suppliers met in the foyer of the Sheraton Fiji Resort where they posed with locals dressed in tribal attire.It wouldn’t be a visit to Fiji without a couple of pictures with the locals 😜 #hellofiji2018 @helloworldau @TourismFiji pic.twitter.com/k7hfTWLxNw— KARRYON (@karryontravel) November 8, 2018The ‘welcome to Fiji’ party continued at a private beachside function behind the Sheraton where they were treated like royalty with throw pillow seating, all-can-drink cocktails and a spectacular buffet.Entertainment, including several traditional Fijian dances, kept consultants smiling from ear-to-ear between socialising with long-lost peers.Fiji’s cultural heritage is on full display at the Helloworld Travel Frontliners Forum welcome party ❤️. #hellofiji2018 @helloworldau @TourismFiji pic.twitter.com/tcgbi7Jadz— KARRYON (@karryontravel) November 8, 2018Helloworld Travel Frontliners Forum officially kicks off tomorrow (Friday 9 November) and is expected to be one of the busiest programs with several exciting guest speakers and learning opportunities.Keep an eye on KARRYON for direct updates from the conference.CLICK HERE for a full gallery of images from the Frontliners Forum 2018 Welcome Party READ: Frontliners kicks off in Fiji today with prizes & a BachelorREAD: “Agency group has added benefits to our group”READ: Agents helped raise $53,000 for Aussie farmersIs anyone you know up in Fiji for the Frontliners Forum?
