Seychelles’ exposure on the international media network was unprecedented during the days of the former Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board, the present Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St. Ange.
The media wheel continues to move in the right direction with the newly-appointed Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board, Elsia Grandcourt.
In one of her overseas missions to the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, the Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board has attracted a number of listeners and readers onto the fledging Middle East Business and Financial news AME info.com.
Interviewed by the head of the AME info.com Broadcast, Phil Blizzard, Mrs. Grandcourt explained that the drive to generate media visibility in the Middle East has been a success.
“The media interviews conducted are effective and have reached the targeted audience. The Middle East reporters were updated on what was happening in Seychelles in terms of the tourism spectrum. The Routes Africa 2012 to be held in the Seychelles between July 8-10 generated maximum media visibility from the media networks,” she said.
From the Business Breakfast show on the Dubai eye to the Malayala Manorama newspaper - India’s largest read regional language newspaper with two million copies and 18 editions across India and GCC - the Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board has conducted some nine, consecutive sit-in interviews during the four-day Arabian Travel Market held between April 30 to May 3, 2012.
