Dubai remains at the forefront of Middle Eastern tourism and will host the World Travel Awards this April.
The World Travel Awards will be heading to Dubai this April, with the Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa playing host to the so-called Oscars of the travel industry.
Attendees will be able to enjoy the luxury resort’s first class amenities during the event, which is set to take place on April 30th.
The gathering will double as the opening ceremony for the WTA’s 2012 Grand Tour, which will scour the globe for the best travel firms in the world.
WTA will take into account the tourism provisions of 162 countries across the globe.
It is the fifth consecutive year that the WTA will host its Middle Eastern event in Dubai – an indicator of the world-leading tourism industry the emirate has built up over the years – not least because of its vast array of luxury hotels, with the world’s tallest hotel set to open in Dubai later this year.
Graham Cooke, president and founder of the WTA, said: “I am delighted that we will be returning to Dubai for what promises to be the most exciting and competitive Middle East ceremony yet.
“The emirate is a hotbed of fresh ideas being put into practice, as exemplified by our host, Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa.”
