A Seychelles delegation made up of the Seychelles Tourism Board and senior management from DMCs (Destination Management Companies) Mason’s Travel and Creole Travel Services are scheduled to attend the annual Seatrade Convention, due to be held between March 12-15, 2012 in Miami Beach, Florida, USA.
For over 27 years, Cruise Shipping Miami continues to be the leading international exhibition and conference serving the cruise industry, bringing together suppliers and buyers for a week of networking sourcing and education. No other event in the world attracts such a broad range of industry players with over 1,800 cruise line owners and operators from 66 companies in attendance in 2011.
The Seychelles Tourism Board’s tourism consultant, Glynn Burridge, will be joined by Lenny Alvis from Mason’s Travel, and Creole Travel Service’s Eric Renard, both senior management officials responsible for the handling of cruise ships to Seychelles, at the convention where they are expected to hold talks with international cruise ship representatives with the aim of promoting Seychelles as a cruise ship destination.
While in Miami, Glynn Burridge will be taking part in a Cruise Ship Miami Conference Session discussing how to enhance the links between cruising and aviation, where he will be answering questions concerning how tourism authorities can best assist cruise/fly programs to a tourist destination.
