At the recently held World Travel Market in London it was Abu Dhabi in the limelight throughout. Abu Dhabi has recently taken gigantic strides in the Travel Industry Market. They have an ever growing range of tourist attractions to match their equally rich heritage. Abu Dhabi has managed to recreate it’s tradition through the help of several attractions. Mubarak Al Nuaimi, the international promotions manager was proud to have seen through a very successful couple of days as far as objectives of the Abu Dhabi travel market were concerned. All in all it remained a very successful venture for TCA (Tourism and Culture Authority) Abu Dhabi as Mubarak Al Nuaimi was quoted saying that a continuous line of visitors were visiting them at the WTM. Many were eager to inquire about the growing number of attractions developed by the oil rich Emirate and all these meetings bred positive results as more and more people left being completely familiar with the newly developed charms in Abu Dhabi.
International Promotion Manager, Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority, Mubarak Al Nuaimi was proud to announce the record breaking number of meetings secured by the travel destination with vital business figures which meant good news for stakeholders in the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Cultural Authority. One of the main attractions for people was the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Grand Prix and a year round booked events calendar. There are a number of hotel openings as well as newer attractions like the cultural treat ‘Arabian Nights’ and ‘Yas Waterworld’, all of this was communicated to all who cared to inquire at the meetings. According to the promotion manager, several of the business meetings lead to certain business leads from those meetings which would be looked into in the following days. Along with meeting business leaders they met with tour operators who are responsible for traveling to Abu Dhabi with travel agents in order to increase tourism traffic for the Emirate. The meetings provided executives at Abu Dhabi to highlight their own particular motives and getting their attractions added to the visitor’s travel schedules. The meetings that ended up being the most beneficent were the ones that weren’t pre-planned.
Abu Dhabi TCA was proud to showcase Manchester City’s new premier league trophy during the WTM in London. The owners of English Football Club are Abu Dhabi United Group Investment and Development Limited which is owned by the Deputy prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. This provided them with a good kick start making the whole experience a huge success. Etihad Airways is the official travel partner with the Manchester club. The 28 delegates from the emirate’s travel department held meetings with key business associates from the industry to promote the location’s new attractions. The meetings were used to spread awareness among major figures from western tourism to increase the amount of tourists seeking Abu Dhabi as a viable travel destination. The amount of meetings secured by the delegates alone was a record number meaning positive things in the near future. Two of the leads generated from the meetings were to be confirmed business opportunities as soon as the delegates were to return to Abu Dhabi.
