Maria Morel from the Seychelles Tourist Office in London, who attended the show, said there is huge potential in the Irish market: 

“It has been a pleasure once again to partner with Classic Resort at this event. This year’s visitor numbers exceeded expectations, with a large number of consumers stopping by the stand specifically requesting for a wedding or honeymoon in Seychelles.

“With much emphasis on Ireland last year and also this year, visitor numbers from this market are up by 33% and look to increase even further for 2014. The wedding and honeymoon market is huge in Ireland and, with the Seychelles already known as a leading romantic destination of choice, it is hoped that many of these couples will get married or honeymoon in the destination.”

Tinaz Wadia, Manager – UK & Ireland, Seychelles Tourist Office, told Irish Travel Trade News: “Seychelles is a unique, otherworldly archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, and is a top destination for discerning travellers. We will be inviting Irish travel agents to our spring roadshow, which will visit the Marker Hotel in Dublin on Tuesday 11th March.”
