The Seychelles delegation to IBTM was headed by Bernadette Willemin, the Seychelles Tourism Board’s Director for Europe based in Paris. She was accompanied by Eric Renard and Stephanie Marie from Creole Travel Services and hotelier Mourad Essafi, from Banyan Tree Seychelles.
“Seychelles islands are ready and have the right infrastructure in place to receive visitors from the meetings, events, conference, incentives and business travel industry. Organising incentives and conferences in Seychelles is now a real possibility,” said Bernadette Willemin at the IBTM Trade Fair. “It is thus important that the Seychelles Tourism is present at such key trade shows to keep our islands top of mind with qualified international buyers and to provide our industry partners with a platform to build relationships and convert into business.”
The Seychelles Islands have recently benefited from new airlines’ services and hotels are equipped with conference facilities and modern technology to accommodate for meetings and conferencing.
