The Seychelles Delegation at MEEDEX in Paris
Seychelles, ideally suited as an incentive and events destination, was present at the Meedex (Meeting destination Experts) held from April 3-4 in Paris.

Meedex which promotes destinations as incentives  to professional organisers of international events, was viewed an appropriate platform  for our islands to showcase its meeting, incentives, conferences and events (MICE) products  to the French speaking markets of France, Belgium and Luxembourg.

The Seychelles delegation was led at the gathering held at the prestigious Carousel du Louvre in Paris,by Bernadette Willemin, the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) director for Europe.

During the face-to-face meetings with different operators from the three countries, Seychelles was rated high as a new destination capable of offering unique and engaging experiences in line with market demand in this segment.

The Meedex trade fair has enabled Seychelles to put into perspective that it is much more than just beach vacation destination ideal of honeymooners.

It is firmly establishing itself in another niche market and establishing new contacts to set up a network on the MICE market.
