Analysts said sports tourists traveling to the UAE this winter will boost the local hospitality and events economy by millions of dirhams. The United Arab Emirates tops the list of favorite places for travelers to the region to catch the biggest global sports events such as the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the Dubai Finals for the European Tour Golf Tournament.
In a recent report by online travel company Muzaffir, travelers chose the UAE for the proximity of major sports events and family-based activities, personal safety, security, room availability, shopping, adventure sports and free link.
Meanwhile, hospitality companies in Dubai have announced a “substantial” demand for hotel rooms, events, bruns and boat rentals. This is the result of high-level sports events in the last quarter of the year.
The Football World Cup in Qatar is the main draw, with the deluge of people from South America – the Emirates is a relatively new tourist market.
We anticipate a significant demand for our services in the next winter of 2022. We offer a wide variety of services, including organising transports, visits, hotel accommodations, and desert safari and city tour items that have won numerous awards.
Customers select Dubai as a hub throughout the months leading up to the most anticipated mega events coming to the area this winter, both for groups and solo travellers. The Middle East, worth $600 billion, is the region of the world with the fastest-growing sports tourism industry, according to the World Trade Organization (DH2.2 trillion).
Aloki Bhadra, the chief executive of the five hospitality – the operator of five hotels in Palm Jumera and the Jumera village circle – said Dubai is likely to become very popular this winter.
It primarily originated from our important markets, including the UK, Scandinavia, Germany, and France. The need for sub-tourism services has expanded along with the demand from hotel providers and the economic expansion.
