“We expect not less then 30 per cent increase in Indian arrivals in 2013. In 2012, over 125 thousand visitors from India visited Abu Dhabi,” said tourism and culture authority (TCA) Abu Dhabi international promotions manager Mubarak Rashed Al Nauimi. Abu Dhabi will focus on leisure and meetings, interactions, conferences, and exhibitions segments, he added.
“India is now our second largest overseas market for hotel guests after Britain should growth trends for the UK and India continue as they have been for the past twelve months, there is every likelihood that India will be Abu Dhabi’s largest overseas source market for hotel guests in 2014,” said Nauimi.
The road show starting on Monday in New Delhi and will be followed in Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai, said Bejan Dinshaw, country manager-India, TCA Abu Dhabi.
