The roadshow will highlight Dubai’s affordable experiences and the diversity of the city’s offerings to key travel partners in the visited cities.
Highlights of the roadshow span across travel, hospitality, entertainment and Dubai’s citywide events, with a focus on leisure, family travel, education and medical tourism.
Key elements of the event will include breakout network sessions, partner presentations, one-on-one meetings, and medical facility updates.

According to data from hotel management analytics firm STR, Dubai ranked Number one globally in hotel occupancy, ahead of other international destinations including New York (61 per cent), London (60 per cent) and Paris (57 per cent), for the January-April 2022 period.
Some of the organizations that will accompany DET to the roadshow include Hotels, Hospitals, Attractions, Destination Management Companies and other stakeholders in the Dubai Tourism ecosystem.

"This is our first roadshow post-pandemic and we are happy to be back. We look forward to working closely with our trade partners and speaking directly to our audience. A lot of new and exciting things have come up in Dubai since our last visit to this region, so we look forward to sharing the good news with all of our East African travellers,” he said.
