The office of Seychelles Tourism Board in South Africa has recorded quite an increased enthusiasm in the meetings, incentives, conferences and events (MICE) market in the last year. This is the reason why it is quite keen to pursue this growing segment.
Lena Hoareau, the manager of STB said that they are quite encouraged by some of the queries they have been receiving for MICE.
Since the commencement of the year 2017, the office has assisted many tour operators in connecting them with the appropriate people and companies in the region of Seychelles. Hoareau has stated that Seychelles is an outstanding destination and there is quite a lot of willingness in this robust market.
She added that brand new tourism operators are looking forward to introducing the destination and that they feel very motivated by the various queries that they have been receiving. And, she even said that they have helped few of them in the last three months by planning familiarization trips to Seychelles to obtain a taste of their destination experience and also to visit different facilities, hotels and activities.
She was speaking following the recent Meetings Africa exhibition that was held in Johannesburg where Seychelles was represented as a perfect destination for the MICE sector.
The office of STB in South Africa had partnered with the national airline known as Air Seychelles.
And, both of them had interacted with international professionals from the MICE industry. Seychelles is an ideal destination that draws a large number of visitors thanks to its magical sunsets, azure waters and abundant reserves of tranquility that paves the way for a perfect ambiance for honeymoon and other kinds of leisure tourism too, alongside MICE tourism.
