Held in association with Emirates Diving Association (EDA), this year’s Dive Middle East Exhibition was the seventh. The five-day event engaged the islands’ delegation in promoting Seychelles, not only as a holiday destination, but also one where visitors can indulge in diving, sailing and fishing. A huge number of potential holiday makers visited the Seychelles stand and showed interest to travel here this year.  Their enthusiasm was spurred by both what Seychelles has to offer, as well as the amazing deals by Emirates Holidays.

On offer during the show was a AED 5,126 package for a three-night stay in Seychelles inclusive of the airfare, hotel and private transfers on breakfast basis and this special Seychelles package with Emirates Holidays remains valid until April 30, 2013.

A number of high profile clients from different parts of the world who were seen at the show visited the Seychelles stand to recount their unforgettable experiences in the islands and the beauty of Seychelles.

“The STB Middle East has confirmed that it has witnessed a substantial growth this year with 37% increase from January to February 2013 compared to the same period last year. With the continuous presence of Seychelles on this targeted event we are optimistic that we will achieve our goal this year to receive 22,500 visitors,” said Ahmed Fathallah, regional manager STB Middle East.

“The STB’s aim in taking part in this event is to continue to increase awareness of the impressive diving, fishing, yachting and sailing opportunities that Seychelles can offer. The Middle East remains a lucrative market for Seychelles and we will continue to increase the visibility of Seychelles to strengthen its position,” said Aliette Esther, STB’s tourism attaché in the Abu Dhabi office.
