UAE travel specialists are to step-up their international leisure and Mice promotion of Abu Dhabi’s Sir Bani Yas Island, claiming the nature-based legacy destination can play a key role in boosting visitor length-of-stay for the emirate. During a two-day, fact-finding visit to Sir Bani Yas Island – located in the emirate’s Western Region (Al Gharbia) – 12 top UAE tour and cruise excursion operators and destination management companies dubbed its wildlife, heritage and adventure experiences as a powerful tool to lift awareness of the emirate’s diversity and commitment to conservation, Khaleej Times reported. The tour was organised exclusively for members of Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority’s (TCA Abu Dhabi) tour operator Industry Development Committee. The operators took in a wealth of wildlife and activity tours, conference facilities and the island’s three, five-star resorts operated by Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas.
