Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort uses ATM platform to attract GCC visitors through focus on “luxury”
Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort, a leading tourism destination in Morocco, was one of the major participants at this year’s Arabian Travel Market (ATM).
The participation at ATM focused on promoting dedicated packages for Gulf tourists with a focus on luxury, according to Stephan Killinger, President of the resort.
This comes on the heels of partnerships between Mazagan and leading airlines in the Gulf region, according to Killinger, who added that ease of obtaining visas and attractive offers have resulted in increased turnout of tourists from the Gulf region.
“We anticipate steady growth in the coming period from the GCC region, as tourists are realizing the competitive edge of Morocco as a holiday destination for those who look for an experience that combines Arabian ambience with European standards of service. Moreover, the year-round moderate climate due to its location on the Atlantic coast is a key attraction for Gulf visitors,” Killinger added.
“Our focus at ATM was on luxury, as we truly believe that luxury is what the Gulf tourists are looking for, in general,” Killinger said.
In addition to Mazagan’s family offers, the resort also tailors MICE packages for Gulf tourists. Killinger said that during ATM they were able to agree on exchange of expertise with the UAE’s MICE sector in general and Dubai in particular.
More than 100 new exhibitors participated in this year’s edition of ATM, as part of the total 2,500 exhibitors.
