The management of Al Bustan Centre & Residence, the popular hotel-apartment among tourists and businessmen in the heart of Dubai, who attended World Travel Market (WTM) exhibition in London, returned with a positive outlook for the industry after meeting with key decision makers, existing and potential clients.
Headed by Moussa El Hayek, Chief Operating Officer, and Yasser Moussa, Executive Assistant Manager of Al Bustan Centre, the delegation gathered vital information and the latest industry trends, and did the networking that will help the property boost their share of the European market.
Mr El Hayek said: “Our visit to World Travel Market has been very rewarding and like the previous years, we have achieved a lot in terms of discovering new brands and strategies that we can adapt and apply for our property. The European market is a diverse market so we met with clients who know our product very well. They have committed to support us by promoting Al Bustan Centre & Residence to their customers. It was a very successful visit and we are very excited to see the results of our effort especially with the coming season.”
This is the third year that the property has visited the four-day World Travel Market, the world’s leading travel and trade exhibition. Close to 5,000 exhibitors from 186 different countries participated in this year’s exhibition to showcase their destinations, products and services.
