If you want to get to know who we are, why we do what we do and why you should join us for the Fijian Touch Cup you’ve come to the right place.
Who are we?
We are TourismHQ. We are a New Zealand registered travel company who specialise in delivering fully immersive travel experiences with a team who have over 50 years experience in the industry.
Tourism HQ founded New Zealand’s first Fiji festival getaway with ‘BlueSky FIJI’ in 2012. We are also the team who created Spring Break Experience now available in Fiji, Rarotonga, Samoa and Vanuatu.
We specialise in creating once in a lifetime travel experiences and international festivals. We are passionate about delivering our clients the best value for money, and ultimately, the time of their lives. We stop at nothing to deliver the perfect event.
Why Are We So Great?
With our wealth of knowledge, specialised skills and extensive network of industry alliances, we create experiences that exceed your expectations and blow our competition out of the water.
We take a great deal of time in researching the market so we can create packages that are designed with our guests wants and needs front and centre.
We looked at the recent boom in touch rugby festivals across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific and we identified a number of issues that we were not happy about. Rather than sitting back and throwing shade over the recreation sports tours industry we decided to take matters into our own hands, to up our game and to offer you the ultimate touch rugby festival.
We came to realise that players and forking out upwards of $1,000 for entry fees alone. On top of this they then had to fund international or across country travel, accommodation and food. We thought this was not only too much money but also too much hard work for the players.
We removed the organisation mayhem and created a package deal that includes return flights, 5* accommodation, transfers, daily breakfast, water sports AND tournament entry fees. We’ll even connect you with kick-ass Fijian players if your team numbers are running low!
The TourismHQ team then came to another realisation, that the Fijian Touch Cup has the ability to be a platform for identifying and developing local Fijian rugby players. This is where our story gets interesting and our ethos is explained.
We believe that the Fijian Touch Cup is a community event at heart and as such we put the needs of the young Fijian rugby community at the centre of everything we do. In the run up to the Fijian Touch Cup we fly out a team of coaches and match officials to run skills clinics for local teams.
We invite local teams to compete at the Fijian Touch Cup for free so they have an opportunity to experience a high class tournament but also so you, our guest, can play against some of the best undiscovered sporting talent in the Pacific.
In the not so distant future we intend to create Academy Fiji, a unique community where Fiji’s most promising sporting talents have access to world class education, life skills training and professional sport development within a safe and motivational environment. By choosing to join us for the Fijian Touch Cup you are helping pave the way for young sporting talent in Fiji to reach the world stage. Thank you.
In a brief phrase, or rather, in a tweet our ethos is to ‘host an event where players receive high class touch rugby competition, enjoy the wonders of the Fiji & give back to the athletes of tomorrow’
The Fijian Touch Cup is unlike any other touch rugby tournament in this part of the world. We’re all about community and player development. We’re here for a good time, not for a long time. We can guarantee that your four days at the Fijian Touch Cup will be the time of your life. You and your teammates will wanna come back year after year and we can’t wait to make memories with you!
See you at the airport! Remember your passport, your boots and your smile!
