Mauritius And The Seychelles Agree On Need For Joint Promotion


Mauritius Tourism Promotional Authority Chairman Robert Desvaux was joined by tourism officials from other countries at the Dubai Air Show this past weekend, to talk about airlines and how they relate to the industry. During a break from those discussions he met with Seychelles Tourism Board CEO Alain St. Ange to talk about joint efforts the two nations might possibly be able to engage in. Both Mauritius and Seychelles are directly competing for new arrivals, but they have also joined with the rest of the Vanilla Islands to try to promote the entire Indian Ocean region together.


At the heart of the discussions was the need for the two nations to work together to promote a more regional concept to travellers. Desvaux and other Mauritian tourism officials will be visiting Seychelles in the coming months to continue the discussions and work on more concrete plans. At that time Mauritius and Seychelles will attempt to finalize some specific events they can plan and work on together. Furthermore, officials in La Reunion have also expressed interest in being part of the joint effort.


In terms of the world's perspective, the nations of the Vanilla Islands working together is a good sign. Each of the countries has developed its own niche known internationally, but in order to grow beyond it they must work together and promote the entire area as a region. How to balance the regional effort with individual national interests is a difficult scenario which will be interesting to watch. In the meantime, each of the nations continues to pursue their own promotional programs.


As for Mauritius, they are aggressively undertaking new initiatives that will transform the international perception of the island. For example, Mauritius golf resorts are quickly gaining a reputation for being some of the best in that part of the world. Mauritius has already managed to land two major golf events this year; plans are in place to continue the trend in 2012. Resorts are getting in on the action not only by hosting the events, but also by providing family-based holidays with golf and golf instruction for everyone involved.


Beyond the golf, Mauritius is also a paradise for beach weddings, honeymoon couples, corporate gatherings, and families looking for some fun in the sun. There are two new hotels opening up - one next month and the other next spring - giving new arrivals even more options to choose from. In the north of Mauritius an ambitious construction project is under way designed to add several more hotels, a theme park, and an entire entertainment complex. That construction is slated for completion in about 10 years.


Whatever Mauritius and Seychelles can do to promote themselves and the region will be good for travellers. The more exposure these islands can get, the greater potential they have two lure Europeans, North Americans, and even Asians to their tropical wonderland.
