Spain Tourism successfully hosted its first post-pandemic travel and trade roadshows in the GCC after international travel bans have been lifted. The first roadshow took place in Jeddah, followed by an event in Riyadh, and one in Dubai.

All three events saw huge turnouts as key travel agents and industry experts were excited to learn more about Spain’s new promotions and offerings after the ease of international travel restrictions.

The events saw the participation of partners from the regions of Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Andalusia and Costa del Sol, along with renowned hotel and DMC partners from Spain.

Mr. Ameen Saduk, General Manager of Al Maha United Travel, commented after his participation in the Jeddah roadshow that it was his first physical roadshow post pandemic and he thanked Spain Tourism for the tremendous effort.

The roadshow allowed Spain tourism to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones with their partners in Spain, which will help creating new holiday packages for the Saudi traveller in the coming months.

Mr. Mohamad Korjieh, Sales Manager of Time Travel, said regarding the Riyadh roadshow that they were very happy to receive an invitation for a physical roadshow after long time of attending the events virtually.

Spain has always been an attractive destination for Saudi families and sports enthusiasts. It has a lot more to offer as a destination.

Accordingly, they will work alongside their new Spanish partners towards developing and promoting exciting new holiday packages that target other traveller segments.

From his side, Daniel Rosado, Director of Spain Tourism – GCC said following the events in Saudi Arabia and Dubai.

They are very pleased to see the impressive turnout of travel agents and industry leaders at all 3 events, and it is always great to hear that many agencies are eager to resume promoting Spain now that travel restrictions have been lifted.

With continuous efforts to strengthen the connections between the region’s outbound travel professionals and Spain Tourism’s travel industry partners, the tourism board is hopeful that the numbers of Saudi and GCC visitors to Spain will grow in the coming period, especially with winter holiday seasons coming up.
