Peter Hopgood, General Manager of the Outrigger on the Lagoon – Fiji, has been voted in as the new Chairman of the Coral Coast Chapter of the Fiji Islands Hotel and Tourism Association.
Mr Hopgood replaced outgoing chairman, Bob Kennedy of Sandy Point Beach Cottages, Korotogo.
Mr Hopgood acknowledged the hard work and long time dedication of Mr. Kennedy and concluded by saying that the Coral Coast was a much better place for Mr. Kennedy’s involvement.
Looking to the future, Mr Hopgood stated that the Coral Coast hotels would become more pro-active in community projects, as well as the promotion of the Coral Coast as Fiji’s premier tourism destination.
“We have a fantastic group of sales and marketing executives working at our hotels on the Coral Coast and our aim is to combine the talent and resources of these professionals to market the Coral Coast in our major source markets such as New Zealand, Australia and the United States”.
Only last week, the Coral Coast Hotels hosted 69 travel writers from the USA.
A major focus for our marketing team will be the promotion of the Coral Coast Sevens in November.
