Tourism Seychelles Hosts Impactful Travel Agent Networking Dinner in Bahrain

The Tourism Seychelles representative office in Middle East organised a strategic Travel Agent Networking Dinner in Bahrain on March 5th, 2024. Held at Flavours, Downtown Rotana, the event enhanced Seychelles’ presence in the Bahraini travel market.

Gathering travel agents from Bahrain, the dinner targeted both budget-conscious travellers and high-profile individuals. With the goal of bridging the gap between the two markets, the event aimed to raise awareness about Seychelles and foster collaborations within the tourism industry.

Ahmed Fathallah, representing Tourism Seychelles in the Middle East, led the initiative, emphasising the importance of strong ties between Bahrain and Seychelles in tourism.

“Our aim was to create an interactive environment where travel agents could connect with Seychelles’ offerings,” said Ahmed Fathallah. “Engaging with key stakeholders in Bahrain can stimulate tourism growth between our regions.”

Feedback from attending agents described the event as an intimate gathering with effective interactions, indicating a promising start to strengthening ties with the Bahraini travel trade.

While this event was initiated by the Tourism Seychelles Middle East Office as part of its ongoing efforts to tap into the Bahraini market, it is worth noting the prior memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between Seychelles and Bahrain on June 19, 2021.

This MoU underscores the importance of travellers from Bahrain and highlights the ongoing collaboration between the two countries in the tourism sector. Furthermore, the MoU reflects the mutual aspiration to revitalize the civil aviation and tourism sectors and to facilitate and enhance safe travel between the two countries as part of economic recovery initiatives following the Covid-19 crisis.

Moving forward, the Tourism Seychelles Middle East Office aims to build on the momentum gained from the Travel Agent Networking dinner by engaging with key stakeholders and exploring further collaboration opportunities.
