Dubai sees 24% growth in Romanian visitors


Romania is emerging as a key source market for Dubai’s tourism sector.

According to the Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), the emirate welcomed nearly 30,000 overnight visitors from Romania during the first three months of 2019.

That’s a 24 per cent increase compared to the same period last year.

The growth was largely down to Dubai’s diverse portfolio of attractions as well as customised marketing and promotional campaigns.

Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Tourism said: “This growth is testament to the market-specific approach we have adopted and the appeal of Dubai’s variety of attractions and experiences that cater to all ages. The city’s evolving product offering plays a large part in attracting our target segment, who are eager for customised and diversified experiences.”
