The Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) is in collaboration with Qatar Airways to take part in Travel & Adventure Show in Los Angeles, USA.
This partnership helps in intensifying efforts to promote the destination in the aviation and tourism market.
Travel & Adventure Show in Los Angeles is an annual event, which is allowing international visitors to discover the endless vacation options, new destinations from around the globe and come face to face with thousands of travel experts.
For the past 14 years, the Travel & Adventure Show has conducted 76 events in the major cities of the United States of America, connecting over 1.5 million travel enthusiasts, with over 3,700 unique travel professionals, facilitating face to face dialogue which has resulted in more than 2.1 billion dollars in travel bookings worldwide.
The Seychelles Tourism Board Director for Africa & the Americas, David Germain, together with the Qatar Airways representative, showcased Seychelles to thousands of international tourists, travel trade representatives and media who visited this year’s edition of the exhibition.
The presence of Qatar Airways at the Seychelles Stand, as the airline partner, offered the opportunity for potential travellers to be presented with the availability of air links.
Qatar Airways offers daily flights from Los Angeles to its central hub, Doha, with easy connections to Seychelles. Mr. Germain said that the collaboration is key as the tow companies endeavour to grow the Seychelles’ tourism market share in North America, and on the entire continent.
“Seychelles’ participation at the Travel and Adventure Show has provided the Seychelles Tourism Board with the opportunity to develop new partnerships with the travel trade, media and consumers in general,” he added.
