The Vanilla Islands at World Travel Market is in for visibility and partnerships

WTM2012_SJH0433-cn-wThe World Travel Market show has opened its doors today in London. Madagascar, the Maldives, Mauritius, Réunion and the Seychelles have come to meet 50,000 visitors and 3000 media outlets.

Since the beginning of the year, the trends have been very positive. For instance, the Seychelles has seen arrivals from UK increase by 33%!


The Vanilla Islands and Kreol Magazine have agreed to collaborate with the goal of pushing the Vanilla Islands on this platform. The magazine is distributed among the international Creole community, from Louisiana to the Caribbean, passing through our region.


The Islands exude a level of creativity worth noting. Through the use of visuals, the authenticity of the food tasting experiences is highlighted. The Indian Ocean region is very much present in this 2015 edition of the World Travel Market.

The stands, which ensure the promotion of each of the Islands, are noticeable. The Mauritius stand stands out by offering services such as performances by Baristas, and attracts numerous visitors.

The Maldives welcomes the public with visuals that are very hard to miss at the entrance of the hall leading to the Africa-Asia-Indian Ocean zone.

The biodiversity and the splendour of the landscapes are highly sought in the British capital where the fog and the bad weather lead the Islands to meet customers’ expectations. Réunion and its territory, classified UNESCO World Heritage Sites, are popular in this regard
