It might sound like just another Valentine's Day marketing ploy, but the speed-dating event at Hooray Bar & Restaurant does feature a tempting added incentive.

The Causeway Bay establishment has teamed up with Air Pacific and Tourism Fiji to offer a tropical island getaway for one lucky couple.

Participants at the event on February 14 will have the chance to win a return flight to Fiji with a four-night-stay at the Likuliku Lagoon Resort.

To win, singletons must first meet their match at the party. The new couple then have to write their 'love story', in no fewer than 500 words, and e-mail it with photos to media@discoverfiji.hk by April 30.

Although staff at Air Pacific and Hooray will get to pick the loving couple, a lot of 'likes' on the event's social network page will also help.

What is more likely to happen: meeting your soulmate on a speed date or winning a free holiday in Fiji? Either way, you will need a bit of luck this Valentine's Day.

Tickets cost HK$300 per person. For more details and bookings, call the Italian bar at 28950885
