Boosting tourism and promoting local culture through the development of innovative cultural attractions
Whilst many Middle Eastern countries have seen an increased number of tourists, there is still a gap between the opportunity that could be enjoyed and what they have achieved in their tourism sectors.
Tourists are seeking more meaningful travel experiences, leading to an increase in demand for cultural tourism. As a result Middle Eastern countries are seeing the strong appeal of culture as a way to attract a much wider global travelling audience and consequently capitalise on more sustainable tourism sector growth rates in the coming years.
With this in mind, we are pleased to announce the 3rd Cultural Tourism and Museum Development Middle East Forum taking place on from 22-23 October 2018 in Dubai. The forum has become a key meeting place for tourism representatives and key stakeholders as well as the best suppliers across the industry to share their knowledge and drive better business in the region.
