The Seychelles Tourism Board has once again excelled in trade fairs, this time at the Outbound Travel Market tourism trade fair in India known as OTM, winning the most decorative stall award.

Maharashtra State’s Minister for Tourism, Ram Shinde, presented the award to the Seychelles Tourism Board’s representatives who were in India.

The Deputy Chief Executive of the Tourism Board, Nathalie Didon; Marketing Executive Pamela Godley; and the team from the Seychelles Tourist Office in India were all present to represent the islands there.

The Seychelles’ stall saw more than 500 visitors in the period of 3 days, and was one of the highest number of visitors owing to a fantastic location and innovative design which contributed in the Tourism Board clinching the award.

The Outbound Travel Market tourism trade fair was held from February 4-6 in Mumbai. Chief guest, Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister of Maharashtra State, inaugurated the event.

The private sector partners who attended the fair from Seychelles were 7 Degrees South, Savoy Resort & Spa Seychelles, Creole Travel Services, Air Seychelles Ltd., Coral Strand Smart Choice Hotel, Berjaya Resorts, and Le Relax Hotels.

Over 1,000 travel-product sellers from 50 countries exhibited at the fair and over 10,000 buyers from the travel industry attended the 3-day event.

Pavilions at this year’s OTM tourism trade fair were from Turkey, New Zealand, Mexico, Dubai, Japan, Thailand, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Nepal, the Philippines, Macau, China, Argentina, Oman, Bangladesh, Jordan, Bhutan, the Czech Republic, Romania, and Taiwan, among others.

Seychelles was also represented by trade partners from the private sector, who also accompanied the Tourism Board’s delegation to the SATTE trade fair in New Delhi.

Both trade fairs were more significant this year with the Seychelles Tourism Board’s increasing focus on its emerging markets in Asia and the launch of Air Seychelles’ direct flight to Mumbai.

SATTE’s fair this year, held from January 29-31, saw over 650 representatives from over 35 countries, 26 Indian states, and more than 12,000 visitors (a 42% increase over last year).
