Wendy’s 30 Year Conference in Fiji
Map of the Island Resort

Greg went with Air Pacific to Fiji on Thursday 23/7/09 and arrived late at night at the Shangri-La resort.
Early next morning he retrieved the crates with the joinery which were shipped from Melbourne and together with the help of Dale from Wendy’s and some carpenters from the resort he was able to mostly set up the counter on Friday with the final setup being finished off on Saturday. Everything went together smoothly thanks to the committed preparation work by all the staff back in the factory in Sydney.
At the end of Day 1 of the convention the local school children choir sang, followed by the beach party with the Kava ceremony and polynesian dances (there are a number of photos attached).
At the end of Day 2 we were treated to a band music performance by the local Fijian Police Band, which lead into the Gala Dinner.
Everyone loved our joinery and we received a lot of praise from all.
Thanks to the fantastic help by the Shangri-La staff when packing up the joinery again, Greg was able to enjoy a few action-packed days after the convention with his family before they had to reluctantly leave again. Greg and his family had a fantastic experience in Fiji, their first overseas trip.
The convention was a huge success for Wendy’s as well as Tri-Design and Greg came back buzzing and full of stories about the reaction from the staff at the resort, Wendy’s and the franchisees.
