The Seychelles Tourism Board with its partners from the private sector participated in one of India’s biggest travel trade fair, the Outbound Travel Mart, 2017 between 21-23rd February at Bombay Exhibition Centre. The private sector from Seychelles was well represented by the DMCs and hotels including -7 Degrees South, Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort & Casino, Banyan Tree Seychelles, Kempinski Seychelles Resort and Air Seychelles.
The event was successful and fruitful to all our partners and great exposure was received by the Seychelles Tourism Board. While the travel partners were able to communicate with the DMC and hotels face to face, many queries were answered and business opportunities were presented to the Seychelles Tourism Board to further capture the Indian market.
Along with astounding response and fruitful networking, the Seychelles Islands booth was given the award for ‘Best Decoration’. This recognition was much appreciated by Mrs. Elsie Sinon who was here to represent the head office along with the Indian representation office for Seychelles.
Commenting on the participation in OTM 2017, Mrs. Sherin Francis, CEO, Seychelles Tourism Board said, ‘‘We are grateful to our private sector partners for their continuous support and would like to congratulate them for the successful event.
We would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation towards the organisers of OTM, 2017. With India breaking into the list of top ten source markets, we are also focussing on MICE opportunities and destination weddings along with honeymooners and hope to see this momentum of growth continue“
