ARABIAN BUSINESS: This week, like most weeks, I have been meeting with the general managers and decision makers from across Dubai’s hotel industry. These are the people who have helped to make Dubai one of the world’s most visited cities and who ensured that thousands of TripAdvisor users recently voted Dubai as the world’s leading destination for hotels, as well as for retail. Inspired by the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, we at Dubai Tourism are working with the our local, regional and global hotel partners to fulfil Dubai’s Tourism Vision of attracting 20 million annual visitors by 2020 and tripling the economic contribution made by tourism.
