DTCM organised study tour for Saudi travel agents

The Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) recently assisted the visit of 12 travel agents from Saudi Arabia`s port city of Jeddah

The Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) recently assisted the visit of 12 travel agents from Saudi Arabia`s port city of Jeddah and one representative from Qatar Airways who were in Dubai to acquaint themselves with its numerous attractions.



The visiting group toured some beach properties, five and four-star city hotels and hotel apartments for site inspections in order to get a better understanding and knowledge of the amenities available. In addition, they were taken on a city tour and a Dhow cruise by the Department.



The DTCM Manager Missions, Mr. Hamad bin Mejren, said: The visit, which was made possible with the assistance of Qatar Airways, was a great success. The travel agents, who were on their first visit to Dubai, were impressed with Dubai and the wonderful developments taking place.



The travel agents also visited the DTCM Head Office where they were received by DTCM Executive Missions, Mr. Abdullah bin Sowaidan, who presented them with souvenirs. He also gave them a presentation on Dubai and briefed the group about the travel and tourism facilities. In addition, they were given DTCM flyers and brochures.



The number of Dubai hotel establishment guests from Saudi Arabia has seen a year-on-year increase. Dubai hotels recorded seven percent growth in Saudi guests in the year 2004 with nearly half a million staying with the Dubai properties. This growth reflects the growing bonds between the two AGCC member-states.
