Peter Smith of Eden Island confirmed the island’s support for the carnival in a meeting on Wednesday morning with Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for tourism and Culture.

‘As a proud member of the Seychelles community, Eden Island finds it vitally important to continue its ongoing support of major cultural events and activities taking place in Seychelles, and with the Carnaval International de Victoria being the biggest event on the Tourism Board’s annual calendar, it was an easy decision to offer our assistance again’ says Peter Smith, Marketing Director for Eden Island.

The total value of the sponsorship of the accommodation being offered amounts to SR 325 000 and this will see over 55 people being accommodated on the luxurious residential estate over this period.

Eden Island staff are also hard at work with preparations for this year’s carnival float procession where the company has again entered a float. Not only is the Carnaval procession a great event, but the preparation in the lead up to the event is a wonderful teambuilding exercise for the  staff members who are able to showcase their artistic talents. “This is a wonderful fun filled  time of year, where excitement mounts in anticipation of the event’ says Peter Smith.

Eden Island looks forward to the 2014 Carnaval International de Victoria and wishes all its participants and the Tourism Board of Seychelles the best of luck.

Minister Alain St.Ange thanked Eden Island for their support and encouragement and said that it was so rewarding to see responsible businesses come forward to support an event where the Community of Nations all come together in an explosion of culture and colour. “Today Eden Island is confirming their support to an even so appreciated by the population as a whole. Eden Island is assisting us to be able to stage an even where well over 50% of the People of Seychelles gather in Victoria on the carnival parade day. We appreciate a lot the support of Eden Island and only wish more businesses and organizations would do the same” Minister St.Ange said.

As major sponsors Eden Island will be invited to the Press Conference where they will be able to meet the large number of International Press flying into Seychelles to cover the event. “We have a duty to ensure that those who assist the country in staging this major cultural event are given the opportunity to meet with the large number of International Press who will be in the country. This will be an opportunity where our sponsors can get international visibility for their own businesses” Minister Alain St.Ange said. The value of this interaction with such a large number of International Press is a reward that cannot be measured and one that will be a big bonus to all those committed to make the Carnaval International de Victoria the success it deserves to be.
