The Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) convened a high-level meeting with key tourism industry partners to analyze market trends in view of recent international developments.
“Last year was an extraordinary year of growth for Dubai and despite a slump in international tourism receipts and feelings of apprehension among some industry experts, the tourism business in Dubai has prospered,” observed DTCM Director General, Khalid A Bin Sulayem.
He noted that the DTCM adopted a series of measures to restore consumer confidence in the destination and made prudent use of the promotional budget and resources while stepping up co-operation between the public and private sector.
He assured the participants that an extensive campaign was currently underway to promote Dubai and work was already in progress. — (menareport.com)
