After recently announcing the establishment of a joint venture hotel management company in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with local partner Dyar Hotels and Resorts, Dusit International announces that it has opened a Regional Sales Office in the Saudi capital city of Riyadh.
Mr. Amr Mekkawi, Director of Sales, Saudi Arabia
With Saudi Arabia being the number one source market from the Gulf Cooperation Council to the Dusit properties in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Cairo and the Maldives, this move is a strategic one to continue building on this growing customer base whilst also providing support to the newly launched joint venture company.
Appointed to run the new sales office is Mr. Amr Mekkawi, Director of Sales, Saudi Arabia. He will be responsible for driving business and raising awareness of Dusit’s worldwide properties amongst Saudi travellers, working in conjunction with the Dubai Regional Sales Office.
“With Dusit focusing on expansion in the Middle East and Africa, and in light of the projects recently announced, we have decided it is an opportune time to have a Dusit Representative based in Riyadh,” said Mr. Sameh Shawkat, Dusit International’s Regional Director of Sales and Marketing – Middle East and Africa. “With his breadth of experience in the region and solid understanding of the market, we are confident that our new Saudi Arabia Regional Sales Office will be a success with Mr. Mekkawi at the helm,” he concluded.
