In light of the upcoming annual meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Marketing Fund taking place in September 2003, Dubai as a whole is gearing up for a major influx of business travellers to the region.
“The long-term gain of hosting the annual meetings will be very beneficial to the area, and will definitely ‘put us on the map’ as a fierce contender in the international MICE market,” explained Peter Mainguy, newly appointed regional director of sales and marketing for Ritz-Carlton in the Middle East.
“People will start to regain confidence in the region, and we expect to attract more city-wide conferences in the future.”
With this in mind, The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai has introduced a host of additional benefits and services to attract the more discerning business traveller to the hotel.
According to the hotel, the list of benefits is extensive and includes:
