Strong delegation for WTM as new marketing tools are launched

Strong delegation for WTM as new marketing tools are launched ( A 27-strong delegation headed by the Seychelles’ Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St Ange, will travel to London in the United Kingdom, at the beginning November to attend the annual World Travel Market (WTM).

The highlight of the country’s participation at the travel show this year will be the launching of the destination’s new promotional videos, new website, and new consumer brochure.

These marketing tools are important in the promotion of Seychelles as a tourist destination to the world, to showcase the attributes of the islands and what they have to offer to modern visitors.

The official launching of the marketing collaterals will be marked by a cocktail event at the Seychelles stand where the Minister and Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB), Ms. Sherin Renaud, will address the UK trade and press on why the destination should continuously try to adapt to travelers’ trends and expectations.

The new videos will portray what Seychelles has to offer besides its beautiful beaches, white sand, and blue seas.

Minister St.Ange and CEO Renaud will also thank the UK trade and press for their continuous support of the Seychelles destination and reiterate why everyone must continue to work together to push that market.

Visitor arrivals so far this year from UK have been erratic with good weeks where the numbers rise and dipping at other times. But the peak seasons have seen good numbers and solid bookings.

The market is currently at -2 on the same period as last year.

The trade participants traveling to London are representing different hotels on Mahe, Praslin, and other islands. These include Kempinski Seychelles Resort, Coco De Mer Hotel and Black Parrot Suite, Cerf Island Resort, Ste. Anne Resort and Spa, Maia Luxury Resort and Spa, Coral Strand Smart Choice Hotel, Raffles Praslin Seychelles, Banyan Tree Resort Seychelles, Eden Bleu Hotel, AVANI Seychelles Barbarons Resort and Spa, Hilton Hotels and Resorts, Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay and Resort, and Seychelles Pure Hotels.

The destination management companies participating include 7 degrees South, Mason’s Travel, and Creole Travel Services. The national airline – Air Seychelles – will also be exhibiting.

The STB delegation led by CEO Renaud will include the Director of Marketing Rose-Mary Hoareau, E-Marketing Manager Vahid Jacob, Copywriter and Consultant Glynn Burridge, and Senior Marketing Executive Maria Morel.

They will be supported by the UK Office staff, including Marketing Manager Tinaz Wadia, PR Manager Lena Hoareau, Marketing Executive Eloise Vidot, and the Director for Europe Bernadette Willemin.

Reigning Miss Seychelles, Camilla Estico, will also be representing the islands at the trade fair.
