Seychelles Tourism Board enhances its presence in tier II and tier III cities

Mumbai: Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) participated in the Global Panorama Showcase 2019 (GPS), a premier business networking event in order to reach out to tour operators beyond metro cities of India.

Out of eight cities where the event took place, this year STB shortlisted Hyderabad, Lucknow and Kolkata to educate and network with the travel trade.

Commenting on this trade event, Lubaina Sheerazi, COO, Blue Square Consultants, Seychelles Tourist Office India said, “This year Seychelles Tourism Board conducted various workshops across India, however, participating in GPS helped widen our base of interaction with agents from tier II and tier III cities that have the potential and interest in Seychelles.

While we have reached out to around 200 agents in each city through this event, it has also helped us understand the nuances of these regions, their specific requirements and the destination’s image in these cities.”
