Sherin Francis, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board visited Seoul in Korea for what is being described as a “major mission” recently. The working visit by Mrs. Francis coincided with the 10th anniversary celebration of the Seychelles Tourism Office in Seoul. “This is a perfect opportunity to get added visibility and ensure we stay relevant in Korea. Seychelles has developed with success a working program to continue to diversify its source markets and Korea remains on the list with great potential,” she stated.
The Seychelles Tourism Board is using the island’s Creole culture to galvanize visibility during this working visit. Sherin Francis had interviews already with The Korea Travel News, The Travel Times, and Chosun Daily Newspaper.
The celebrations for the 10th anniversary of the Seychelles Tourism Board’s Korea Office was held with 120 attendees of media, travel trades, tourism friends of Seychelles, and important opinion leader groups. The invitees will be treated to Seychelles Creole cuisine where a 5-course dinner menu will be served, accompanied by a Seychellois rum-based cocktail.
The Tourism Board’s CEO was joined on the working trip by Julie Kim, the Seychelles Tourism Board’s Manager in Korea; Mr. Jeong, the Seychelles Consul. The Seychellois artisans showcased their works at the two soirees, and pieces of their work were offered as raffles for the two evenings.
