Travel and tourism, which now amounts to around 12 per cent of the country’s jobs total, is expected to rise to 15 per cent in the next 10 years, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). The country is now generally considered safe, if perhaps a little spartan, to travel around most of the country.
The varied scenery and pristine quality of its antiquities are fascinating; but distances are vast and facilities are quite primitive in some places. Many tour operators advise visitors to carry their own supplies of bottled water and toilet paper, for instance.
TTN is the most established trade publication in the Middle East distributed on a controlled circulation basis to members of the travel and tourism industry.
Published monthly by Al Hilal Publishing and Marketing Group, the region’s foremost trade publisher, TTN is aimed at professionals in the industry, from travel agents to airline and hotel personnel.
TTN provides in-depth and extensive coverage of relevant issues in the Middle East and North Africa as well as in other parts of the world. Travel related news, analysis, and new appointments together with information on up-coming exhibitions, marketing and promotional campaigns are presented in an innovative and striking colour tabloid.
Every issue also contains a collation of international and regional news and topical features of interest to readers.
