1 Tourism boom in Dubai, fourth most-visited destination world 5% increase from Italy, top destination for Indians with 2.1 mn 09 February, 10:47 (ANSAmed) - ROME, FEBRUARY 9 - Dubai has become the fourth most-visited destination in the world as tourism continues to grow, according to data released by Dubai Tourism. Indian tourists ranked first with 2.07 million visitors in 2017, followed by Saudi Arabia with a total of 1.53 million arrivals. The United Kingdom came third, closing 2017 with 1.27 million travelers. China and Russia also registered very positive results thanks to the simplification of customs procedures. China ranked fifth (764,000 arrivals) while Russia registered a 121% increase on 2016 with its 530,000 arrivals. The performances of the United States, Germany and Iran also improved registering, respectively, 633,000, 506,000 and 503,000 visitors. Italy also performed well with 214,000 presences, up 5% on ''Dubai - commented Helal Saeed Almarri, director general of Dubai Tourism - attracts an increasing number of foreign visitors, making tourism a sector that contributes in a significant way to the Emirate's GDP''. The 6.2% growth registered in 2017, added Almarri, ''is giving the right rhythm to reach the target we have set for 2020''. The fourth place in the ranking of most-visited cities worldwide ''makes us even more confident in our current and future performances; in this perspective, we set a new target: becoming the number one city in the world in terms of arrivals''.

2 TOURISM March 5, 2018 Last updated 1 minute ago 15.8 million people visited Dubai in 2017 Visitors from India top tourist arrivals, thanks to an ongoing tourism campaign featuring Shah Rukh Khan Image Credit: Virendra Saklani/Gulf News A record number of tourists came to Dubai last year. Published: 13:52 February 7, 2018 Cleofe Maceda, Senior Web Reporter Dubai: A record-breaking number of international travellers flew into Dubai in 2017, further cementing the city s position as one of the leading tourist capitals in the world, a new report showed. According to the latest data published by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), Dubai is nearing its 2020 tourism target as it welcomed a total of million visitors last year, up by 6.2 per cent over a year earlier. South Asia emerged as the number one source of tourists for Dubai, with hordes of Indian visitors, amounting to 2.07 million, arriving in the emirate last year, up by 15 per cent from 12 months earlier. This is partly due to Dubai Tourism s ongoing collaboration with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the multi-awarded #BeMyGuest campaign.

3 DUBAI'S TOP VISITORS (number of tourists, million) Dubai offers a lot of appeal to discerning travellers from around the world. The emirate is not only home to some of the world's popular landmarks like the Burj Khalifa, it offers a host of activities for families and everyone else to enjoy.

4 His Excellency Helal Saeed Almarri, director general of Dubai Tourism, said the 6.2 per cent growth in tourist numbers has allowed Dubai to ramp up the pace towards meeting the 2020 tourism targets, which include attracting 20 million visitors per year starting Today, Dubai s travel and tourism sector is not only well positioned to offer a superlative destination experience across its eight core strategic propositions, but also geared to accelerate its appeal to the diverse and evolving needs of our global travellers, he said. Last year alone saw a number of developments that opened their doors to tourists, further broadening Dubai s appeal to a wide spectrum of visitors. The city s newest beachfront district, La Mer, opened to provide families with a new hotspot for dining, playing and unwinding, while Etihad Museum was inaugurated. The year also saw the inauguration of La Perle in Habtoor City, which is seen to boost Dubai s entertainment scene. Dubai s major theme parks IMG Worlds of Adventures and Dubai Parks and Resorts (DPR) had their first full year of operations in Among the openings towards the end of the year were Dubai Frame and Dubai Safari, both already proving to be popular and the former generating the most impressions ever seen on Dubai Tourism s Instagram page. Saudi Arabia was the second-largest contributor of tourists to Dubai at 1.53 million. The kingdom remained the highest driver of visitor traffic from within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, although the overall number of Saudi tourists posted a 7 per cent decline from a year earlier. The United Kingdom was the third-largest source of tourists, delivering 1.27 million travellers up by 2 per cent over visited-dubai-in

Emirates aims for 8.5 mn visitors 13 February, 11:00 (ANSAmed) - ROME, FEBRUARY 13 - Abu Dhabi had a record year for tourism in 2017, with a 9.8% increase in visitors to the United Arab Emirates' 162 lodging structures, for a total of 4,875,499 visitors, according to hospitality sector figures published by the Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT) of Abu Dhabi.

7 It said the number of visitors who stayed in the area of Abu Dhabi City in 2017 rose 10.3%, for a total of 4,295,030 guests in the area's 131 hotels and apartment-hotel structures, among a total of 26,821 rooms. DCT Director General Saeed Ghobash said the number of visitors to the three regions of the United Arab Emirates continues to grow annually, which he said is a testament to "our determination to make Abu Dhabi a must-visit destination". He said Abu Dhabi has "one-of-a-kind" cultural archetypes, and that those, "combined with the variety of landscapes, cultural and historical sites, the presence of numerous entertainment structures for families, and business opportunities, continue to stimulate tourism and will help us to reach growth of 11% annually, ultimately reaching the goal of 8.5 million (visitors) by 2021". The top three foreign markets for Abu Dhabi in 2017 were China (up 60%), the United Kingdom (up 13%), and India (up 11%). There were a total of 62,797 Italian tourists. One of the factors that contributed to increased visitors in 2017 was the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi on November 11.(ANSAmed).

8 Saif Saeed Ghobash, Director General of Abu Dhabi's Department of Culture and Tourism is bullish about the number of visitors to the emirate. Pawan Singh / The National Abu Dhabi expects six million hotel guests in 2018, as the emirate ramps up efforts to promote tourism, the director-general of Abu Dhabi s Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT) said. Visitor numbers have gone up, we ended the year 2017 with around five million hotel guests official numbers have yet to be published but there is definitely a ramp up, Saif Saeed Ghobash told The National. We have witnessed around a 10 per cent year-on-year increase which is quite phenomenal. For this year, as we have closed 2017 with 4.9 million hotel guests, we should hit six million in The largest visitor increases came from India and China, as a result of the UAE introducing visas on arrival for Chinese tourists in New tourism products such as the Louvre Abu Dhabi and Warner Bros studios on Yas Island have diversified the offering for families and other tourists that visit the emirate, Mr Ghobash said. We continue to invest a lot in promoting the emirate abroad in our source markets and are very optimistic about the future, he added. Abu Dhabi is vying to grow its travel and tourism industry despite global and regional headwinds. The emirate received a record 4.4 million tourists in 2016, 8 per cent more from the previous year, according to official statistics. The emirate is benefiting from widening its arts and culture offerings with the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi the only regional presence of France's famed museum. Abu Dhabi hopes to attract art enthusiasts and other visitors from around the world. A free mobile phone app will be launched by DCT on February 27 specifically aimed at promoting cultural activities in Abu Dhabi, Mr Ghobash said, in line with a statecommissioned television campaign launched this month.

9 The Culture app is targeted at residents and visitors and is intended to provide information on Abu Dhabi s cultural ecosystem, especially for digitally enabled millennials. One of our jobs as a department is to increase awareness of and preserve our culture by increasing engagement with it, and you have to keep up with the times. Maybe back in the day you d publish books and go on roadshows at universities," Mr Ghobash said. "Today it s just easy to make sure you have something easy to understand at your fingertips.

A consortium that includes the DCT, Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company, Etihad Aviation Group and real estate developer Miral said they were partnering with venture capital firm Wamda Capital to launch an accelerator programme for travel and tourism-focused start-ups. Each of the four organisations will put up $100,000 of capital to one of four winning start-ups that is most relevant to their business, and help incubate the start-up. Wamda will assist in the selection process and offer support and advice to participants. The initiative, called Fikra Labs, is also supported by the emirate s financial free zone, Abu Dhabi Global Market.. This is the first round that we are pioneering here and I don t think it will be the last," Mr Ghobash said. "Fingers crossed we will see...more rounds of this and this could evolve into something grander than something with a platform of just a few weeks.
