MMI Travel, a division of Maritime and Mercantile International Limited., has relaunched Gulf Ventures, a dedicated destination management unit that will cater to inbound UAE tourists.
The specialised cell of the company was officially launched at an event hosted by the new management team of Gulf Ventures, and attended by senior representatives from various UAE-based hotels.
The Gulf Ventures re-launch coincides with new appointments at MMI Travel, new corporate livery for the destination management unit, the completion of two camp sites at Al Aweer, and a new fleet of 4WD vehicles.
"We have seen the world witness a downturn in the travel industry in the last two and a half months. But, compared to many destinations elsewhere, Dubai has not been as badly affected, which only proves its popularity as an internationally preferred global destination," said Kerem Camcigil, general manager, MMI.
MMI Travel is one of Dubai's leading IATA accredited travel management companies, providing a one stop travel solution in three core areas Ñ Business Travel Management, Outbound Leisure and Vacation Travel and Destination Management.
The company is the exclusive General Sales Agents (GSA) for Abercrombie and Kent, Contiki Holidays, Qantas Holidays, Simply Ski, American Airlines and Air New Zealand in the UAE.
