TCA Abu Dhabi hopes to boost inbound tourism at ATM

Apr 20 2017

Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority, TCA Abu Dhabi, is leading the largest delegation it has ever taken to the Arabian Travel Market next week in a bid to capitalise and increase on record numbers of guest arrivals into the emirate. The authority will be joined by 67 interested parties representing 115 products at the region’s biggest travel and tourism fair, which is being held in Dubai between 24th and 27th April.

The emirate’s leading hotels, destination management companies, tour operators and attractions will be represented at Dubai World Trade Centre where more than 30,000 delegates will be using the event to network, negotiate and discover the latest industry opinions and trends.

Saif Saeed Ghobash, Director-General of TCA Abu Dhabi, said, "Abu Dhabi’s popularity as a place to visit and experience is increasing each year and our impressive guest arrivals numbers demonstrate the emirate’s growing international appeal as a value-for-money destination. We are targeting a 10 percent increase in the number of guest arrivals this year with our strategic focus on six specific markets which we believe offer the best growth potential, the UK, Germany, India, China, United States and the GCC region.

Joining the delegation at the Abu Dhabi pavilion for the first time this year will be Abu Dhabi Airports Company, Abu Dhabi Health Authority, TDIC, Cleveland Clinic, Department for Economic Development, Tourism Police and the General Directorate of Residence and Foreign Affairs. The pavilion will be split across Abu Dhabi’s three distinct regions – Al Dhafra, Al Ain and Abu Dhabi city, with stakeholders allocated space according to the region they are representing.
