From sunrise or sunsets over sparkling white sandy beaches, stunning waterfalls, lush tropical rainforests, perfectly manicured gardens and the sweet harmonies floating out of colonial churches from the local village choirs, one might ask, “why Samoa for our next conference or event?”
Old world hospitality, the friendliest people in Earth and excellent modern infrastructure, Samoa offers the perfect 'home away from home' for the discerning business traveller.
While Samoan values are timeless, their conferences and events facilities are up to date and can accommodate groups of all sizes – from a board meeting for a dozen to a conference for three hundred.
A wealth of activities await your delegates – rejuvenating spirits, refreshing the soul, allowing you to bring the best out of everyone during your conference or event.
Scratch beneath the surface and you will find that Samoa has more to offer than meets the eye.
Conference and event experiences can be made more memorable by incorporating traditional Samoan cultural experiences as part of the programme.
Hotels and resorts offer traditional Samoan food, usually at their Fiafia nights with traditional buffets and entertainment. Fiafia nights are a celebration of Samoan culture through song and dance. Performers in traditional clothes serenade the audience with folksongs and energetic dancing incorporating Samoan myths and legends in the performance. A highlight is the Siva Afi or Fire Knife dance and the graceful Siva dance. Demonstrations and performances can easily be arranged by the venue coordinator and Samoans are more than happy to have audience participation in their performances!
Beyond the tropical setting, Samoa has excellent infrastructure and one main road circumnavigating the main island so all major sites, landmarks and places of interest are within easy access. Traffic is non-existent so there are no excuses for tardiness - unless you get into the island way of living and you willingly adopt the notion of “island time”.
Fa’a Samoa has a strong focus on welcoming visitors making Samoans friendly and hospitable hosts. A number of hotels in Samoa are ideally suited to meet the needs and expectations of different markets including business travel.
With conference, display and banqueting facilities, Samoa is an ideal venue to host international conferences, product launches, seminars and receptions.
