OTM 2017 in India was a successful one, and the Seychelles islands received great exposure.
The Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) with its partners from the private sector took part in one of India’s biggest travel trade fairs, the Outbound Travel Mart (OTM) held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre between February 21 to 23.
The private sector from Seychelles was represented by the DMCs and hotels including -7 Degrees South, Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort & Casino, Banyan Tree Seychelles, Kempinski Seychelles Resort, and Air Seychelles.
While the travel partners were able to communicate with the destination management companies and hotels face to face, many queries were answered and business opportunities were presented to STB to further capture the Indian market.
Along with astounding response and fruitful networking, the Seychelles islands’ booth was given the award for “Best Decoration.” This recognition was much appreciated by Marketing Executive Elsie Sinon who was there to represent the head office along with the Indian representation office for Seychelles.
“We are grateful to our private sector partners for their continuous support and would like to congratulate them for the successful event. We would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation towards the organizers of OTM 2017. With India breaking into the list of top 10 source markets, we are also concentrating on M.I.C.E opportunities and destination weddings along with honeymooners, and hope to see this momentum of growth continue,” said STB Chief Executive Sherin Francis.
