The Seychelles Tourism Board has given its verdict on the Jeddah International Travel & Tourism 2016 event held at Jeddah Hilton last week.
The three-day event had more than 20,000 visitors, 150 trade exhibitors, and 17 countries attend. It was the first time for the Seychelles Tourism Board to partake in the event.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) saw a 28.14% increase in visitor arrivals as recorded in year-ending statistics in 2015.
Ahmed Fathallah, regional manager at the Seychelles Tourism Board Dubai Office, said: “We are delighted on the outcome of the JTTX6 event, as we were able to communicate with different trade partners and consumers in Jeddah and at the same time have a glimpse on the latest travel behavior in considering KSA as one of our primary markets.
“Our first participation in the JTTX6 event has given us the opportunity to raise the profile of Seychelles as we aim to maintain and increase demand for the destination not just from our trade partners but from the end-users as well, which are the consumers.
“We have also placed several activities to be carried out for us to be able to best promote the destination.”
