Copthorne Dubai Hosts Vietnamese Travel Experts

Copthorne Hotel Dubai recently hosted a group of travel agents, tour operators and journalists from Vietnam visiting the UAE on a three-day familiarisation trip.

In collaboration with Rida International Tourism & Travel, a destination management company for the Gulf countries, travel agents and journalists from Vietnam discovered different elements of the destination for their knowledge to better promote the city to Vietnamese travellers.

Vietnam is a potential tourism market for Dubai and the city is welcoming a growing number of visitors, with reports citing that, during 2013, there were only 500 visas issued to Vietnamese nationals visiting the UAE, with figures leaping to 25,000 two years later.

“This is a great opportunity to support the government’s efforts to strengthen awareness of the emirate and promote the destination to all types of travellers across the globe,” commented Glenn Nobbs, general manager, Copthorne Hotel Dubai. “There is no better way for a travel agent to sell a destination to their clients than to experience it first-hand for themselves.”
