Seychelles Minister congratulates Tourism Board on winning Best Destination Management Award at 2013 Routes Africa Aviation Forum in Kampala, Uganda, for 2nd year running (Forimmediaterelease.net) For the second year in a row, Seychelles was awarded the Best Destination Management Award at the closing ceremony of the 2013 Routes Africa Aviation Forum that took place in Kampala, Uganda, from July 6-9.

The award was collected by the team of Seychelles delegates headed by the outgoing CEO of the Tourism Board, Elsia Grandcourt; Gilly Faure, CEO of Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority; Glynn Burridge, the board's tourism consultant and Chief Copywriter; and Amy Michel, the Seychelles Tourism Board's Senior Marketing Executive.

The Seychelles team attended the 3-day event which consisted of strategy sessions addressing some of the challenges facing the aviation and tourism industries before engaging in one-on-one meetings with representatives of Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, South African Airways, and Turkish Airlines to discuss future plans for air connectivity and collaboration.

The latest award for Best Destination Management was voted for by members of the global airline community at Routes which saw the participation of over 300 delegates at the Speke Resort, Kampala, Uganda.

“The winning of this award at Routes for the 2nd year running is a vindication of our combined efforts to market Seychelles as a tourism destination, and we are delighted to have our hard work recognized with by this prestigious award," stated Elsia Grandcourt.

The Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, Mr. Alain St.Ange, has congratulated the Tourism Board for this latest accolade. “Seychelles is today visible as never before. We know that the annual marketing strategy meeting held between the Tourism Board marketing team, our overseas Seychellois managers, and members of the tourism industry keeps us focused on the way forward and the work we are doing based on decisions at these annual meetings in keeping Seychelles relevant as a tourism destination. We have tacked our marketing with intelligence; we knew that promoting only our sun, sea, and sand will not suffice anymore as unique selling points, so we embarked into the world of events to increase visibility of our islands for the benefit of those involved in the tourism industry. Today, we can see that our chosen path is proven to be working when we look at performance of other destinations," Minister St.Ange said.

As Seychelles is winning such recognition on the world stage and as the islands’ Tourism Board is being congratulated for its work in getting Seychelles more seen, more known and more sought after, the Minister said that it was important for the country to looks at areas brought up by the tourism trade as new challenges such as the level of cleanliness of the country and the spate of insecurity being felt today.
