Roadshow 2022 reconnects Seychelles and Réunion Travel Trade   |20 October 2022

The Seychelles Tourism department hosted yet another productive roadshow in Réunion, bringing together professionals from the Réunion and Seychelles Travel Trade to discuss the latest developments on the market.

In each town, Tourism Seychelles and its local partners engaged in a series of workshops and round-robin discussions to keep their counterparts in Réunion abreast of new products offered in Seychelles.

Senior marketing executive for Réunion, Bernadette Honore, was actively involved at the Seychelles Reunion Roadshow in Saint-Gilles-Les-Bains and Saint Denis from October 3 to 5.

Also representing Tourism Seychelles in Réunion was marketing executive Ingrid Asante.

Towards the end of the workshops, Ms Honore shared her sentiments on the overall engagements and success of the events.

"We are very satisfied with the outcome of the B2B workshop sessions. Since the re-opening of Air Austral flights in December 2021, the time was right to bring local trades on the market to network and reconnect with their Réunion Travel Trade professionals. Their participation in the B2B workshop sessions was very positive, and they showed strong interest to continue pushing sales to Seychelles," said Ms Honore.

The two local destination management companies (DMCs) at the events were represented by Lucy Jean Louis from Masons Travel and Stéphanie El Abou Mekdachi from 7° South. Another local travel trade participating in the roadshow was Fabrice Maynard, representing the Constance Hotels.

The event also saw the participation of Air Austral, represented by Brigitte Ravilly, head of Distribution for the Réunion market.

On the last day of the Seychelles Réunion Roadshow, Tourism Seychelles and its partners hosted the Réunion Travel Trade Directors and Head of Products to a business lunch held in Saint Denis. The session led with a presentation by Tourism Seychelles on market trends.

“The business lunch was organised as part of a strategic approach to grow businesses in Seychelles and bounce back to the pre-Covid trends in terms of arrival figures. The event was ideal for networking with our product managers and directors and gaining sale support for the destination,” said Ms Honore.
