The Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) Office in Dubai conducted the third edition of its GCC roadshow across Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait, and Qatar from October 14 to October 17, 2018.
The STB representative in Dubai, Mr. Ahmed Fathallah and STB Headquarters’ Senior Marketing Executive, Mrs. Natacha Servina led the delegation.
They were joined by representatives of several local partners: Air Seychelles, Banyan Tree Seychelles, Constance Hotels & Resorts, Eden Bleu Hotel, Luxury Travel, MAIA Luxury Resort and Spa, Six Senses Zil Pasyon, The H Resort Beau Vallon Beach Seychelles, and Vision Voyages.
A great turnout was recorded throughout the roadshow, with some 40 to 50 agents in attendance in each city. The roadshow saw the participation of a mix of agents, working with both the leisure and Meetings Incentives, Conferences & Exhibitions (MICE) segments.
Accommodated in centrally located venues in each city, the agents were also hosted to a dinner, which allowed more time for them to network with the STB representatives and local partners.
The evenings ended with raffle draw with prizes, where winner/s won a trip to Seychelles with accommodation and excursions offered by the partners.
Talking about the event, Mr. Ahmed Fathallah STB representative in Dubai described this year’s GCC Roadshow a success.
“We are very happy with the event results and it will not be possible without the support of our partners. We believe that this roadshow is a good way for us to fortify our relationship with the trade sector hence roadshows and trainings will continuously be included in our activity pipeline in the coming years,” said Mr. Fathallah.
The GCC Roadshow has become an annual staple to the STB Office in Dubai, as it is a perfect venue to strengthen the relationship among the trade partners in the region as well as pave the way for future profitable collaborations of the partners with the local hotels, DMCs, and airline from Seychelles.
