Seychelles takes part in Brussels’ Salon des Vacances

The Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) and its partners took part in another holiday fair that was held from February 2-5, 2017 at the Brussels Expo fair ground in Belgium.

The four days were the most crowded and busiest days with the Belgians coming out in full force looking for their next holiday destination.

Among those visiting Seychelles’ stand were the Seychelles Ambassador in Belgium Selby Pillay and his wife.

STB was represented at the fair by senior marketing executive Christine Vel based in Paris along with two representatives of the trade – Eddie d’Offay from L’Archipel Hotel and Carl Lacoste from Air Seychelles.

“In general there was a good turn out and we had a lot of clients stopping by who had already gone through the first steps of booking their flights and accommodation and were needing some advice on learning more about the destination, getting around, sight-seeing, excursions etc,” said Miss Vel.

Most of the people who came around were mostly looking for small family friendly hotels, guesthouses and self-catering and were happy to learn that these are available in Seychelles, she added.
