Delegates will also undertake a tour of the historical and archaeological sites in the emirate.

Haitham Mattar, CEO, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority said hosting the ITT annual conference “is a real coup for the Emirate and is a credit to the strong and visionary leadership of His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Ruler of Ras al Khaimah”.

“Whilst our size could be described as boutique, the ambition for the Emirate should not be underestimated,” he continued.

“With a captive audience of industry heavyweights from one of our most important source markets, we are putting on a real show.”
