Seychelles Tourism Board recently organised an all-women familiarisation trip for travel agents from Mumbai, Nagpur and Ahmedabad. The objective of this trip was to enable understanding about the destination and establish relations for the Indian trade with the private sector in Seychelles.
The trip was aimed at showcasing some of the best hotels and resorts in Seychelles to the agents educating them about the various offerings Seychelles has in the luxury living space.
Speaking about this initiative, Sherin Francis, CEO, Seychelles Tourism Board, said, “We are seeing increased interest for Seychelles from the Indian market. A major part of the credit can be attributed to our Indian travel trade partners for understanding the uniqueness of Seychelles islands. We will continue to educate and support them through initiatives like FAM trips, training and roadshow.”
