The Seychelles delegation who will attend the Top Resa and TTG trade fairs

The Seychelles islands delegation will be headed by STB chief executive Alain St Ange and by the tourism board’s director for Europe, Bernadette Willemin, alongside other representatives of the country’s tourism board.

The delegation will also comprise representatives from the tourism board’s trade partners keen to consolidate their presence on the French market. These include Air Seychelles, the Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Beach Resort & Casino, Creole Travel Services, Desroches Island Resort, Kempinsky Seychelles Resort, Le Méridien Seychelles, Le Relax Hotels, Mason’s Travel, Raffles Praslin Seychelles and Seychelles Connect.

TOP RESA is one of the world’s major tourism trade fairs and this in terms of the number of visitors and exhibitors alike, enabling those taking par to renew their contacts as well as meet and make new professional contacts, discover or re-discover new tourism products and services.

The Seychelles delegation will take part in this year's Top Resa with a 60.5 square metre stand with its brand decoration.
 
A Seychelles delegation headed by STB deputy chief executive Elsia Grandcourt and comprising representatives of 14 companies from the tourism sector, will attend the TTG trade fair in Italy, from October 6-8.

In a meeting with the delegations for both trade fairs, Mr St Ange echoed the importance of having Seychelles present at these international trade fairs. 

In addition, he discussed with the private sector on pertinent points facing the Seychelles tourism industry and briefed members of the delegation on how best to present Seychelles in each of the markets so as to make the most of the opportunities and to work as one team.

“Our presence at Top Resa and TTG will enhance the various marketing efforts that have already been undertaken to develop these markets, and most importantly the opportunity for us to make Seychelles better known,” said Mr St Ange.

France remains the main tourism market for Seychelles with Italy maintaining its position as the second most important market.
