Representatives of the Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT) Abu Dhabi and the Oman’s travel trade representatives met at DCT’s
Annual Oman Roadshow held last week in Muscat to promote Abu Dhabi’s diverse tourism offerings.
The event was held in partnership with Etihad Airways and Experience Hub.
Nabeel M al Zarouni, regional promotion manager, Middle East and Africa, at DCT Abu Dhabi, said, “Abu Dhabi hotel guests witnessed a positive growth of 15 per cent from January to July 2019 by Omani visitors compared to the same period last year. Therefore, engaging stakeholder in Oman is a priority for DCT. We are constantly thriving to offer our Omani visitors unique and outstanding experiences.
“This year, for example, we will be hosting several festivities to celebrate the Omani National Day across Abu Dhabi on November 18 to ensure their experience in Abu Dhabi is an unforgettable one.”
The Oman Roadshow featured presentations by DCT to increase awareness of Abu Dhabi’s existing and new offerings as well as interactive games and team-building exercises, which saw attendees win valuable prizes.
DCT Abu Dhabi rewarded Sur Travel Agencies with all-inclusive trips for three of its staff to Abu Dhabi for achieving the highest number of passengers traveling with Etihad Airways from Oman to Abu Dhabi in 2018.
