Dubai will invest heavily in tourism until Expo 2020. Tourist-oriented investment plans include expansion of metro lines and new hotel rooms, DCE executive for MICE Accounts (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Exhibitions) Dinah Policarpo said in Brazil.
“We can expect lots of new things for the next there years, because Dubai is getting ready for Expo 2020,” Policarpo told the audience of agents, tour operators and journalists.
Authorities attending the workshop in São Paulo included the United Arab Emirates consul general in São Paulo Saleh Ahmed Al Suwaidi.
Some of the new sites are already up and running, such as IMG Worlds of Adventure, the world’s biggest indoor amusement park, which opened in August of this year.
October will see the launch of the Dubai Parks complex, comprising three theme parks: Motiongate, focusing on the movie industry and featuring characters from American studios; Bollywood Park, devoted to the Indian film industry; and Legoland, featuring Lego-inspired toys.
