Destination Seychelles started and proceeded in fast pace in North America as the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) Seychelles Destination team carried on a “Seychelles product & destination” training session for 45 travel agents from Chicago and the region.
STB Regional Director for Africa & the Americas, Mr. David Germain, took the benefit of his presence in Chicago, Illinois, for the Travel and Adventure Show, during the weekend of February 8, 2020 to February 10, 2020.
The selected agents for the training comprised partners who are by now actively associated with promoting Africa and the Middle East, placing Seychelles as an exclusive destination providing an ideal escapade planned for pristine nature and cultural diversity.
The Luncheon training session took place on Thursday February 7th, 2020, at the Maggiano’s Restaurant, North Clark Street, Chicago, Illinois 60654, USA.
At the event, the participants got updated information regarding Seychelles Destination as a multifaceted destination, which comprises sundry recreational activities with nature and its diversity of products. During the meeting, participants got the chance to ask questions regarding Seychelles in general.
Mr. Germain explained about his utter satisfaction after the successful event and emphasized that the training Seminar is a crucial tool to boost up the confidence of the travel trade in North America to better understand and sell Seychelles.
To quote Mr. Germain, “We have seen the importance of those training sessions as it provides the STB with the perfect platform to introduce the agents to the archipelago. For the past 3 consecutive years since the STB initiated the training seminars in the various cities in the Americas, on the side-lined of its main event, the participants have not only increased in numbers, but the STB have also noticed the increased awareness of Seychelles in North America”
