Of late, Seychelles Tourism Board carried on workshops in Pune, Bangalore and Chandigarh to instruct potential travel trade partners and provide them with comprehensive information related to various offerings in Seychelles. This helped Seychelles Tourism Board to meet with several potential travel agents in the three cities and put down the foundation for future sales visits with potential operators. These workshops comprised a destination presentation, question and answer round followed by networking session that was attended by around 45 – 50 tour operators in each of the three cities.
To quote Lubaina Sheerazi, COO, Blue Square Consultants, Seychelles Tourist office India, “Seychelles has so much to offer beyond its beautiful beaches and has gained immense popularity among Indians in the past couple of years. Taking a step further, our focus has been to widen our outreach beyond the metro cities as we see a lot of potential travelers in tier two cities. Conducting workshops and trainings have helped us to create awareness about Seychelles, build relationships with travel agents in new regions, understand real challenges of travelers from different cities and offer customized solutions. Looking at the great response we received from these cities, we plan to conduct similar trainings in tier two cities like Raipur and Nagpur as well.”
Visa on arrival, direct flight connectivity with picturesque views, crowd less beaches, tropical weather all through the year and numerous exotic experiences makes Seychelles a perfect destination for Indians. This year, the country has witnessed a steady growth in tourist arrivals from India and ranks India as the top 6th source market for Seychelles.
