Why the Middle East?
A SMART CHOICE FOR INVESTORS
The GCC has firmly established itself as one of the leading and most exciting tourist destinations in the world. Already valued at $178.8 billion a year, its hospitality, leisure and recreation industries are only set to grow, driven by rising visitor numbers, expanding populations and the hosting of major global events like Expo 2020 and the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
"Demand continues to grow as new attractions come on stream and more choices for accommodation, dining and entertainment become available. One of the driving forces for development in Dubai is the tourism vision looking at attracting 20 million visitors by 2020. This, together with an expected 25 million visitors to the Expo 2020 site, means that Dubai needs to continue to develop the hospitality sector to accommodate the demand."
