(eTN) – Next weekend will see the second edition of the Madagascar International Tourism Fair take place in the island’s capital of Antananarivo, which has already since its inception received the full support of other Vanilla Island partners as a key event on the annual calendar of mutually-promoted activities to promote tourism to the islands.

“Showground” will be at the Hotel Carlton in the capital, where a significantly higher number of attendees are expected this year. Madagascar is, in fact, hoping to make this fair THE Indian Ocean Tourism Fair of the Vanilla Islands regional body. Madagascar has been enjoying increased interest again and the island’s tourism industry is hoping that this event, combined with other high-profile activities like the co-hosting of the Seychelles’ Carnival International de Victoria will spur a revival for the sector.

Madagascar had been hit hard by the fallout of political unrest in recent years, boycott calls, and the suspension from the African Union, while the many attractions the island has to offer were largely laying idle.

The Vanilla Islands of Mauritius, La Reunion, the Seychelles, Comoros, and Madagascar will all be present in a show of solidarity and to showcase their very own unique attractions to the press and tour operators present.

Alain St. Ange, the Seychelles Minister of Tourism and Culture and current President of the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands Regional Organization, and Didier Robert, the President de la region La Reunion, the Organization’s Secretary, will both be leading their respective Tourism Board’s delegation to this Madagascar tourism event. Also expected is Pascal Viroleau, the CEO of the Vanilla Islands, and Derek Savy, who is set to be working with Pascal Viroleau as soon as necessary funds are unblocked. A Vanilla Islands meeting will also be held during this International Tourism Fair in Madagascar.
