IIPT Supports Seychelles Minister of Tourism for Election to UNWTO Executive Council

IIPT Supports Seychelles Minister of Tourism for Election to UNWTO Executive Council (Forimmediaterelease.net) STOWE, Vermont, USA (FIR) - The International Institute for Peace through Tourism (IIPT) is pleased to support Mr. Alain St.Ange, Minister of Tourism and Culture, Republic of the Seychelles, in his nomination for election as a member of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Executive Council.

Since becoming the Seychelles Minister of Tourism and Culture, Seychelles has been continuously in the media spotlight. Minister St.Ange would bring this same energy, marketing expertise, and commitment to the UNWTO Executive Council, as well as his media alliances throughout the world, with the aim of doubling arrivals to Africa in a few short years.

Minister St.Ange is a strong believer in strategic regional marketing approaches as demonstrated by the successful Vanilla Island Cooperation of Indian Ocean Islands. He has also developed win-win marketing partnerships with African mainland destinations promoting combined safari-beach vacations and thereby reaching new markets for both partners.

In supporting the Hon. Alain St. Ange for the Executive Committee, IIPT President Louis D’Amore stated: “IIPT was honored to have Minister St.Ange as a keynote speaker at the Fifth IIPT African Conference - Meeting the Challenges of Climate Change to Tourism - during which he clearly demonstrated his visionary and insightful thinking. We have observed since that time, the impressive manner in which he has marketed the Seychelles as a global destination and the creative new initiatives he has implemented such as the Carnaval Internationale de Victoria (The Carnival of Carnivals).”

Mr. D’Amore continued: “As Africa’s representative to the UNWTO Executive Council, he will similarly use his marketing skills and expertise to bring world-wide media attention to all of Africa as a premier global destination of the twenty-first century. Moreover, his Seychelles philosophy ‘friends of all, enemies of none’ is a philosophy supportive of IIPT’s vision of ‘Building a Culture of Peace through Tourism’ and our belief that ‘Every traveler is potentially an Ambassador for Peace.’”
