Al Bustan Centre & Residence, the popular hotel apartment among visiting tourists and businessmen in the heart of Dubai, has recently participated in the 13th Kazakhstan International Travel Fair (KITF), held at Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Kazakhstan International Travel Fair (KITF) was launched in 2001 and is now the leading travel event for inbound and outbound tourism in Kazakhstan. KITF provides an excellent opportunity to present Kazakhstanis with the latest tourism industry achievements, education and medical destinations, and holiday destinations from all over the world. This year around 500 exhibitors from 38 countries participated in KITF with 7,770 visitors.
Moussa El Hayek, Chief Operating Officer, Al Bustan Centre & Residence said: “We have been participating in this major exhibition for the past 11 years. As KITF provides us a perfect platform to develop strategic relationships with different markets in the region and beyond and pave the way for a host of new opportunities such as international joint ventures. Over the past five years, we have witnessed an increase in tourists visiting Dubai and our property from this region”
Khaled Saab, Director of Sales and Marketing who represented Al Bustan Centre & Residence at KITF 2013 said: “The feedback is positive; we have showcased our property’s facilities and services to the tourists wishing to visit Dubai. Our main focus this year was to introduce travel packages for young tourists who wish to visit Dubai by cooperating with various associations across Kazakhstan. It will also offer them the opportunity to experience traditional Arabian culture. The property will cooperate with travel agencies and airline companies to offer many different travel products themed on the luxurious shopping experience.”
The tourism potential of Kazakhstan is rich and versatile, and offers unique opportunities for development of almost all kinds of tourism. Its travel industry has seen huge growth over the last few years, and in 2011 the outbound tourism from Kazakhstan grew at over 20 per cent.
