Copthorne HotelRecognizing the importance of rapidly growing Halal tourism, Copthorne Hotel Dubai is keen to grow its share of the segment. The Halal sector was worth $140 billion in 2014 representing around 13% of global travel expenditure. This figure is expected to reach $233 billion by 2020, presenting huge opportunities for governments, tourism boards, hotels, tour operators and other key travel industry players across the Middle East region.

Elaborating on Copthorne Hotel Dubai’s strategy, General Manager Glenn Nobbs, said, “Halal tourism is rapidly gaining popularity, as recognised at the special seminar held at ATM yesterday. We are perfectly placed at Copthorne Hotel Dubai to welcome Halal travellers. Being a Sharia compliant property, with a team of well-trained hospitality professionals who understand the requirements of Muslim guests, we are in a great position to be a leader in attracting and serving this segment in Dubai. Each of our guestrooms offers a Qibla signage, prayer mat and copy of Holy Quran. For the convenience of our guests, while we have our own prayer room, the ‘Green’ mosque is located just across the road. Moreover, we do not serve any alcohol and only serve Halal food. Arabian Travel Market offers us the perfect opportunity to promote our facilities and meet key travel agents and suppliers of the Halal segment that covers a variety of travelers, be it corporate or leisure”.
