Bi-Rite recently hosted over 150 members and suppliers to celebrate 25 years in business at its annual conference in Fiji.

The conference kicked off with a welcome dinner at the resort accommodation. The next day, members and suppliers gathered at the conference centre for a range of sessions with presentations from Bi-Rite senior management, as well as guest speakers including tutch chair, Stuart Harker, Narta CEO, Michael Jackson and Electrolux ANZ managing director, Kurt Hegvold.

Bi-Rite then held a Gala Awards Dinner to recognise and celebrate its members. The dinner was hosted in the lavishly decorated Grand Salon Ballroom, at the Marriott Momi Bay. Celebrations were kicked off by a Fijian Fire Dance, before the opening address. The last day of the conference saw attendees come together for a team building challenge.
