MICE Industry Highlighted at Great GM Debate

During the recent Great GM Debate in Dubai, Ferghal Purcell, general manager, The Ajman Palace Hotel, emphasised the increasing importance of the MICE segment to the region.

With the UAE, Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia driving its rapid and robust growth, the sector contributes significantly to the Middle East’s economic development through income and employment as well as by attracting foreign investment.

In addition to underscoring the region’s strategic geographical location, Ferghal noted, “The UAE is one of the safest destinations in the world and has set a great example in that direction.

The developments in terms of infrastructure and facilities taking shape for Dubai Expo 2020 will further boost its global and regional positioning as a MICE destination.”
