Seychelles partners with Reunion travel trade experts on “seduction mission” |28 May 2022
Tourism Seychelles partnered with Reunion travel trade professionals Anthurium Tourisme Océan Indien and Air Austral on a seduction mission dubbed ‘Seychelles Voyages de Rêves’.
Representatives of fourteen companies from the banking, medical and commercial field were invited to a destination presentation dinner event in the city of Saint Denis.
Targeting group travellers for leisure, the evening included presentations by the Tourism Seychelles representative in Réunion, Bernadette Honore; sales & distribution director of Air Austral, Brigitte Ravily; Anthurium Tourisme director Valérie Lemoine and Anthurium Tourisme manager Nathalie Shun-Keo.
The three presentations revolved around the discovery of the destination, the availability of flights including the special offers for group travellers and also on packages for group travellers for leisure, respectively.
Although not present at the event, some local partners including Acajou Beach Resort, Britannia Hotel, Coco de Mer Hotel Black Parrot Suites, Le Duc de Praslin, Paradise Sun, La Digue Island Lodge, Coral Strand Hotel, Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa, Le Meridien Fishermen’s Cove, Story Seychelles and DoubleTree by Allamanda offered special packages for the event. The packages were presented by Anthurium Tourisme director Valérie Lemoine.
Following the successful event, Ms Honore expressed her satisfaction to have hosted the ‘Seychelles Voyages de Rêves’ event, which was the first of its kind to be organised on the market this year.
“‘Seychelles Voyages de Rêves’ provided the right platform to network directly with business decision-makers who have adequate budgets to organise leisure travel for their workers to destinations such as Seychelles. Such an event where all invitee attention is focused on Seychelles helps not only to generate interest for Seychelles but most importantly to secure bookings. Through the event, our objective has been achieved with companies already committing to positioning their group travellers for leisure to Seychelles,” she said.
She further mentioned that the group travellers for leisure have been one of the key segments focussed on by the Tourism Seychelles’ team in Reunion as part of its marketing activities.
‘Seychelles Voyages de Rêves’ event was initiated following Seychelles Tourism’s presence with Anthurium Tourisme Océan Indien attendance of B2C event, held in March 2022, dubbed ‘Salon Comité d’Entreprise’ targeting businesses in Réunion.
