Oceanic signs partnership for Digicel Suva Rugby Festival
Suva, Fiji - 21 September 2009

The Suva Rugby Union are delighted to announce the signing of an agreement with Oceanic Communications Ltd to develop the official website of the Digicel Suva Rugby Festival 2010 and to be the creative team behind the promotional work for this historic event.

Held from 15-23 January 2010 at a number of venues in Suva, the Digicel Suva Rugby Festi- val promises to be one of the biggest rugby festivals in the world with more than 200 teams participating.

Digicel Suva Rugby Festival 2010 organising committee chairman, Vilikesa Rauca, thanked Oceanic wholeheartedly in stressing the importance of a solid and professional partner on the creative and website side of things.

“The quality of the new website being developed by Oceanic is critical in promoting the Digicel Fiji Rugby Festival to a worldwide audience,” Mr Rauca said. “Likewise, the professional stand- ards met by Oceanic on the creative and advertising side for promotions is essential.”

The new webiste, www.suvarugby.com, will be launched in October and will promote heavily the Digicel Suva Rugby Festival as well as the Suva Rugby Union club competitions like the fabled Escott Shield, now in its 98th year.

Jonathan Segal, Oceanic Communications managing director, said: “Oceanic Communications is proud to be supporting an event like the Digicel Suva Rugby Festival, which is sure to bring a lot of attention to Fiji.”

“We believe this exciting event will become a tradition for Suva, and in years to come grow to be a recognised international event. From the start, the organising committee have displayed a commitment to quality, which has been a large deciding factor in us coming aboard.”

”The official website will become an important marketing tool for this event, given its inter- national visibility,” Mr Segal said. “It will provide as much information about the Suva Rugby Union, the birthplace of the festival, as it does of the event itself.”
