Discover everything that Mauritius has to offer as your ideal MICE destination, combining quality, elegance and style, in a paradise island setting!

After 18 months of lockdown restrictions and border closures, Mauritius has reopened its borders to welcome the world back to its shores once again and is open for business.

Recent global accolades include being named in the top three when Lonely Planet unveiled its top 10 countries to visit in 2022. And, at the 2021 World Travel Awards, Mauritius was awarded as both the Indian Ocean Islands’ Leading Wedding and Adventure Destination.

Mauritius is the ideal destination to visit, whether it’s for a business trip or an industry conference, an incentive trip or adventure excursion… or simply to reawaken your soul after a stressful year and a much-needed break.

Meeting in Mauritius

Having hosted a series of virtual business meetings, webinars, workshops and expos during the past year and a half, it’s time to get back to business. This is the view of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA), with the country now open for business.

Airlift is increasing and three other airlines – SAA, BA Comair and FlySafair – are now flying the Johannesburg-Mauritius route in addition to Air Mauritius.

The MTPA can reassure the MICE industry that Mauritius is once again open for business, as airlines, incentive houses and agents representing PCOs and groups promote Mauritius as the idyllic Indian Ocean destination to cater for all your MICE needs.

The MICE industry is an important cog in the MTPA’s tourism strategy, realising great economic benefits from this segment to the country’s GDP.

“Now that our skies have opened up again, both business and leisure travellers have the opportunity to visit and experience the island’s amazing warmth and hospitality again. Mauritius and South Africa have long enjoyed a magical relationship and we are confident this will continue as people feel safe to start travelling again,” says Arvind Bundhun, Director of MTPA.
