2 Nov 2017, Dubai, UAE

Dubai is celebrating four award wins at The World Travel Awards 2017 held recently in the emirate - accolades that once again cement the city’s standing as a tourism pioneer in the region. Established in 1993 to reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry, The World Travel Awards brand is globally recognised as the ultimate hallmark of quality in tourism.  Issam Kazim, CEO, Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), said: “Tourism is a central pillar of Dubai’s economic growth and diversification, and the city continues to be a must-visit destination for both business and leisure travellers – increasingly including repeat visits. But, in order to remain globally competitive, we must continuously innovate and adapt to the evolving nature of the travel industry. This forms the basis of Dubai’s strategy, ambition, and our determination to maintain and grow our standing as a premier global travel destination. In accordance with our Tourism Vision 2020, we are working tirelessly with our industry partners to broaden Dubai’s offering across events, attractions, infrastructure and services. We are therefore honoured to have received these accolades that demonstrate that once again, Dubai is pioneering tourism in the region.”
