Speaking Arabian Travel Market, Patrick Antaki, complex general manager at Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort in Fujairah, tells Breaking Travel News how this lesser-known emirate has sought to boost its fledgling tourism sector. With new properties opening all the time, the strategy appears to be paying dividends.
Concorde Hotel Fujairah announces its participation in the annual Arabian Travel Market running from today through to Thursday, 5th to 8th May at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, with the aim of strengthening Fujairah’s tourism industry.
The first quarter of 2014 has already marked record highs in tourist footfall at Fujairah City Centre. In 2013, Fujairah has seen a 17% increase in the number of tourists. To accommodate the rising number of tourists, Fujairah City Centre has enhanced their shuttle service, which transports tourists from five major hotels to the mall.
