The www.seychelles.travel announced the 2019 edition of the Seychelles Tourism Festival.
The Tourism Festival marks the annual tourism week in the Seychelles in attempt to raise awareness of the significance of tourism in the country and for its people.
The Festival is a celebration meant to commemorate World Tourism Day and includes the annual Tourism Ball, Food Fiesta, Clean up the World, Tourism Mass, Public Speaking, and many more activities.
World Tourism Day takes place this year on Friday, September 27. Its purpose is to foster awareness among the international community of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political, and economic value.
The timing of World Tourism Day is particularly appropriate in that it comes at the end of the high season in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of the season in the southern hemisphere, when tourism is on the minds of millions of people worldwide.
