Pioneers of the Seychelles tourism industry will be honoured at a special plaque-laying ceremony at the Seychelles Tourism Academy.
The event will take place on Saturday September 6 as part of activities to mark Tourism Week 2015.
This year, the Seychelles Tourism Board will be honouring a first batch of pioneers of Seychelles tourism who have been recognised as having played important roles in the formative years of the industry and who, by their energy, vision and commitment, set the course that we are following today.
The pioneers of the country’s tourism industry will be honoured at a special plaque-laying ceremony at the Seychelles Tourism Academy on September 26, starting at 9am.
Tourism and Culture Minister Alain St Ange has welcomed the country’s tourism trade and friends of the island’s tourism industry to the event.
“Recognising those who have helped build our Seychelles is important. At the House of Culture, the National Cultural Centre in Victoria, our musicians today have their ‘Wall of Fame’ and at the Creole Institute we have already unveiled a bust for Antoine Abel to recognise his work as a poet and also as one of our popular authors. This coming Saturday it will be the first batch of pioneers of our tourism industry who will be recognised,” said Minister St Ange.
