13 Jun 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The travel & tourism sector in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is anticipated to keep on gaining momentum through to 2018, underpinned by the government’s strong initiatives to jump-start the growth in the domestic tourism business, develop tourism infrastructure, and take part in promotional campaigns and international events in the leading countries like the US, the UK, Germany and Russia, as well as in emerging China and India.

Domestic tourism trips volumes in the country posted over 5% CAGR, increasing by 1.3 million over the past 4 years. Such growth is supported by the gains in disposable income owing to the country’s booming economy and enhanced focus on the promotion of the national tourism. The key attraction for domestic travellers is shopping, with Dubai in this respect being the most visited destination hub.

The national hotel market performance was sound during the review period, with total hotel revenue recording over 18% CAGR and the number of hotels increasing by 146 to 723.
