There were 586,355 visits made during the first quarter of 2017 to Dubai Parks and Resorts (DPR). The Indian outbound market is expected to contribute 20% of the total business for its three theme parks and supporting facilities in 2017.
David Loiseau, senior vice-president of sales & marketing at DPR said, “Dubai’s tourism agency reported 14.2 million overnight visitors last year with India as its largest source market for the first time. When DPR did the market sizing for India, we quickly realised that India was critical for the success of our destination.”
Loiseau said, “We have created a one-of-a-kind leisure and entertainment destination featuring the best of the East and the West, therefore, it’s difficult to pinpoint one popular park as each park caters to a different kind of audience.”
Dubai Parks and Resorts also feature a Legoland Water Park, the Riverland dining and retail district and Lapita Hotel. A Legoland Hotel and Six Flags theme park will come up in the coming days. About 1.6 million people visited Dubai from India last year, a 26% year-on-year increase.
