Exhibiting on the impressive Dubai Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing stand, Ms. Patima Onnorm, the hotel’s Director of Sales & Marketing, said the response from the trade and media had been very positive.
“With Dubai arrivals from the UK rising in the third quarter from 489,884 last year to 535,284 in 2013, we expect this trend of around 10 per cent growth to continue,” she added.
“The UK is the major medium-haul market for the city, and is third overall, demonstrating the importance of maintaining links with operators and agents as well as sourcing new channels of distribution in the country.”
More than 27,000 trade visitors and media attended WTM over the first two days of the show, and estimates from the organisers, Reed Travel Exhibitions, indicate the show will be the best-ever attended and will facilitate more than £2bn in industry deals.
“With more and more airline seats available between the UK and Dubai, including A380 services from London Heathrow and Manchester, our expectations are that the UK will remain a key market for both Dubai and for the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai,” said Ms. Onnorm.
“With occupancies on the rise in Dubai, and rates similarly going up, buyers were keen to source competitive pricing but without sacrificing quality – this is niche occupied by the Park Regis Kris Kin, and the fact was appreciated by the UK trade who are no longer just looking for beach resorts.”
