Dubai has been named as the second most important retail destination globally by CBRE for the fifth consecutive year. Tourism plays a vital role in Dubai’s retail market. Last year 14.9 million visitors stayed in Dubai and 86 million passengers used the facilities of the Dubai airports. This also reinforces the need for high quality hospitality offerings.
With this in mind Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism) hosted over 200 members from Dubai’s hotel industry at the Bollywood Parks Dubai to share updates and information on the latest hospitality offerings and experiences across the emirate. The event was held in partnership with Meraas and Dubai Parks and Resorts.
The attendees were taken on a tour of all the parks and Riverland Dubai, as well as given updates on various projects in the pipeline. The objective of the event was to ensure the best level of local knowledge and service be consistently offered to visitors by Dubai’s hotel community.
Dubai Tourism’s efforts, alongside those of its partners, are testament to the ongoing commitment to deliver exceptional visitor experience and promote Dubai as one of the world’s leading destinations for tourists and business visitors alike.
“Our partners in the emirate are of utmost importance to our efforts to promote Dubai as a destination as we head towards 2020, and their support is truly invaluable. We are very happy to be able to host members of Dubai’s hotel community today who represent the city first hand and we will continue to invest in our relationship with them,” says Issam Kazim, CEO, Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing.
