Trivedi, along with DMCs like 7 South and Holidays Seychelles, and hotels such as Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort & Casino, Club Med, Hotel Raffles, Silver Pearl, Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa, and Coral Strand Smart Choice Hotel, showcased the destination’s offerings.

Attendees had the chance to explore tailored packages and gain hands-on knowledge about Seychelles’ outstanding hospitality and adventurous activities.

Reflecting on the event, Bernadette Willemin, Director General – Destination Marketing, Tourism Seychelles, highlighted the significance of India as a pivotal market. She emphasised the commitment to nurturing partnerships with Indian trade allies to welcome more visitors and offer them exceptional experiences on the islands. The roadshow served as a vital tool in showcasing Seychelles as a year-round destination catering to diverse travellers such as honeymooners, nature enthusiasts, luxury seekers, families, divers, and adventure enthusiasts. Notably, eco-tourism stands as a key draw for environmentally conscious travellers. Willemin expressed the dedication to expanding Seychelles’ presence in India, fostering new collaborations.
