“The first event to be held at the new Denarau Island Convention Centre will showcase this fantastic new facility and demonstrate to international buyers that Fiji can host large-scale events.

“The facility is designed to accommodate up to 1,500 delegates and will be a great asset to both Denarau Island and Fiji in attracting large conferences and events to our destination.”
