Italy remains amongst the top five markets for Seychelles and has seen an increase of 3% in arrivals in 2018. Most Italians, especially when travelling long-haul, are seen as “big spenders” and the outbound segment from Italy has a positive trend.

TTG Trade Fair provides the perfect occasion for the travel trade to meet, network and conduct business on an international level.
