Headed by the Dubai Tourism Commerce and Marketing, the group will be visiting four major South African cities namely Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town to promote tourism and business trade exploration.
South Africa is one of the important feeder markets for Dubai. This is made up by South African companies opening trade offices in Dubai, and, those travelers transiting via Dubai before proceeding to their onward routes.
“This is now our third consecutive year in participating with DTCM to sales blitz Dubai and Taj Palace Hotel to the South African market. Our hotel has proven to be one of the most preferred accommodations given our unique non-alcohol profile. A significant number of South Africans being Muslims welcomes this dry-policy. This makes the Taj Palace Dubai all the more popular with families and business travelers”,
