Within the framework of our quest for the realisation of our wise leadership’s vision to make UAE and Dubai a preferred friendly destination for tourists and visitors of determination, I have the pleasure to announce Dubai’s hosting of the 1st edition of the “Dubai Accessible Tourism International Summit – Tourism for Everyone: Improving Engagement, Enhancing Experience”.
A first-of-a-kind in the world in terms of the comprehensive range of topics to be discussed, the Summit aims to highlight the legislations, policies and requirements of tourists of determination, in addition to the challenges they face while travelling in relation to available infrastructures, transportation and communications means, education, medical tourism, banking services and qualified human resources capable of dealing with them, among other equally important related issues.
The Summit, which enjoys the participation of organisations, officials and international government officials and experts, aims also to strengthen our efforts to make our nation a preferred tourist destination for people of determination from all over the world, and to avail the opportunity for the decision makers in the UAE to be acquainted with best international practices in the field of tourism and services dedicated to people of determination. This will eventually serve our national economy by attracting a new segment of tourists and visitors of more than 700 million people, 50 million of whom live in the Middle East.
I look forward to your support and participation in this Summit, so that we contribute together to boosting the importance of our nation as a preferred tourist friendly destination for people of determination, while working together to make this Summit an additional achievement to the list of global events hosted by the UAE.
