visitbritainYesterday, VisitBritain opened a new office in Riyadh. Britain’s national tourism body took this step to lure more travelers from Saudi Arabia to United Kingdom. This announcement was made at the residence of Simon Collis, British Ambassador to Saudi Arabia via press conference which also involved the selection of Saudi national Badr Almandeel as VisitBritain Country Representative.

To quote British Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Simon Collis said: “The appointment of Badr Almandeel to head VisitBritain’s in-country operations builds on a century of strong trade and cultural relations. Every year Britain welcomes more and more Saudis in the UK with thousands visiting on business, for tourism or to study. I would strongly encourage Saudis to go and see for themselves everything that the UK has to offer.”

To quote Sally Balcombe, VisitBritain Chief Executive, ”The new office in Riyadh will see us engage more effectively with potential visitors to Britain, converting aspiration to visit into bookings and inspiring more Saudi Arabians to book a trip now to come and explore our nations and regions. And with the UK offering excellent value at the moment, particularly for luxury goods, it is a great time to come to Britain.”
