Seychelles Tourism Board appoints BRANDit as its representation arm for the India Market

The vibrant outbound tourism industry of India is optimistic about some green shoots of recovery by the latter half of 2021.

Travelling is innate to humans and having spent a considerable amount of time indoors, people are yearning to explore more than ever before. In light of this sentiment, Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) is all set to rule the travel rosters yet again with the appointment of BRANDit as its official representative in India. 

BRANDit will handle marketing, sales and Public Relations for the island nation in the Indian subcontinent.

She continued, ” India is a promising market and its ever-evolving dynamic nature has always made it an exciting playing field for our outbound marketing efforts. Seychelles will serve as a safe haven and an exotic getaway for the pent-up travel demand among Indians.”

She added, “With the right skills and experience, we are confident that BRANDit will fortify Seychelles’ growth in the India market. Despite a challenging 2020, we are positive to emerge through this phase stronger and better.”

The island country has recorded a 502% growth in tourist arrivals from India in the last 6 years and has executed many creative collaborations leading to a steady uptick in visitor numbers.
