SATTE – South Asia’s leading B2B travel and tourism event, is being held from January 16-18 in New Delhi and from the 21st to the 22nd in Mumbai. India is proving to be one of the fastest-growing markets for the travel and tourism industry in the world, and SATTE is India’s first, and by far the biggest, tourism event that clearly recognizes this. This year it will be the 19th edition of SATTE with the participation of 33 countries.
The Seychelles Tourism Board is being represented by Stephanie Lablache, Senior Marketing Executive, and Mavreen Poupouneau, Marketing Executive, along with three local trade partners, Johnette Labiche of Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay, [email protected] ; Mr. Freddy Karkaria of SELECT –SEYCHELLES, [email protected] ; and Ms. Doris Coopoosamy of 7 South, [email protected]
The Seychelles islands started its first day at SATTE on a good note with a courtesy visit from the Secretary General for the Ministry of Tourism in India, Mr. Parvez Dewan, who was presented with a small token from Seychelles by Ms. Lablache, a USB Coco de Mer.
The day continued with many potential buyers visiting the Seychelles stand and with promising business for the participating local partners. The Seychelles Tourism Board also met with some reputed media companies such as Lifestyle magazine and also gave an interview about howe Seychelles intends to promote itself in India which will be featured in the SATEE Newsletter.
After 3 days of attending the fair in New Delhi, the Seychelles delegation will head to Mumbai to hopefully gain more promising business opportunities.
The Seychelles Tourism Board firmly believes in the potential that the India sub-continent has to offer, and last year saw a small 2% growth over the previous year in terms of visitor arrivals. By positioning itself at one of the biggest tourism events in this fast-growing market it would surely help to create that much-needed visibility that destination Seychelles needs to have on this market, said Mrs.Elsia Grandcourt, CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board.
