The Seychelles - an unrivalled MICE destination

Eden Bleu hotel entrance
Mika Lara savours a visit to the Indian Ocean’s pristine paradise
The Seychelles Tourism Board markets its islands as ‘another world’ and that is exactly what I found on my visit: a tropical paradise, remote and exquisite, teeming with rare species of bird and an abundance of vibrant marine life. I was spoilt for choice – wherever I looked it was difficult to drag my eyes away!

Country of castles and commitment

Sydney Paulden was entranced on a visit to Unexpected Luxembourg

Luxembourg decided it was time to make itself better known to the MICE markets and I was one of the lucky people invited to a show-round of some of the country’s facilities and attractions. I was surprised at how small the country really is but also by the many benefits it has to offer to event organisers. It measures 82km by 57km (51 miles by 35) and so, within minutes, a group can enjoy excursions taking in river locations, vineyards, medieval chateaux, city centre convention centres, a variety of hotels, rail journeys through mine workings and walking tours through ancient rock tunnels.
