Trophies of appreciation were also handed to several key partners
Dubai, UAE: A team from Golden Sands Hotel Apartments, part of A.A. Al Moosa Enterprises and pioneered the concept of hotel apartments in the region, has returned from a recent trip to Germany to meet with key tour operators in a bid to increase inbound tourists from Germany to the property.
German guests are one of the top source markets for Golden Sands Hotel Apartments and the trip was organised to strengthen ties with their key partners who were recognised for their continuous promotion of Dubai and the property to this segment.
The team of Mohammad Khoori, General Manager and Nives Deininger, Director of Sales shared vital information about industry developments including packages for the upcoming winter season. Trophies of appreciation were also handed to several key partners such as Thomas Cook GmbH, TUI Deutschland, Meier’s Weltreisen, Dertour and FTI Touristik during the visit.
“We have plenty of opportunities to attract the German market and Dubai is still a popular long haul destination so we should take advantage of this. Although the current political climate in the region and currency issues has impacted the pace of bookings for the winter season, we are still optimistic that we will be able to attract a considerable number of guests from Germany this year,” said Khoori.
The German market has played a significant role in UAE’s developing tourism industry and tourists are still flocking to the country in large numbers. Tourists from this segment have an average stay of five to six nights in the emirate.
“Our partners highlighted that some holiday makers are also waiting to see whether to book due to the fluctuating rates in our city. As the supply of hotels and hotel apartments continues to increase, hotels vie for the incoming leisure business by extending attractive offers at the last minute. Overall, the visit to Germany was successful as it helped ensure constant communication and regular updates from both sides,” added Deininger.
