Jumeirah Group recently kicked off its annual GCC road show which also includes Qatar. The event is scheduled to be held on 24 November 2014 at St Regis Hotel Doha.
As per statistics, Qatar is a key source market that registered a 37% growth in room nights and 32% room revenue year-to-date in comparison with the same period last year. The Group will focus on family tourism as it responds to international Muslim community requirements.
In 2014 year-to-date, combined business from countries in the Gulf region accounted for 326,644 room nights and 22.7% of revenues. The average room rates across the company’s portfolio grew by 1.4% with occupancy increasing by four percent which in turn contributed to a 7.4% growth in revenue per available room (RevPAR).
