The National Council of Tourism and Antiquities and Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA) had conducted a successful promotional tour Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan earlier this month.
Following this event, the authorities would be conducting another series of road shows to Russia, Armenia, Georgia and Kazakhstan. During the tour, SCTDA will promote Sharjah’s tourism developments under the Sharjah Tourism Vision 2021 that aims to attract 10 million tourists by 2021.
The delegation will be headed by HE Khalid Jasim Al Midfa, director general of SCTDA along with representatives from Air Arabia, Sharjah Airport travel agency (SATA), Copthorne Hotel Sharjah, Ramada Sharjah, Golden Tulip Hotel Apartments, and Khalidiya Travel & Tourism.
A number of workshops and meetings will be organised with representatives and decision makers in travel, tourism and hospitality sectors in cities of Almaty, Moscow, Yerevan and Tbilisi.
HE Khalid Jasim Al Midfa said: “The tours are part of the Authority’s strategy to shed light on the diversity of Sharjah’s tourism product and strengthen its tourism position. The road shows will also help attract a large number of tourists to Sharjah from key markets.”
SCTDA has also planned a number of promotional tours throughout the year in major capitals and cities of the Gulf, Asian and European countries.
