The main objective of the Dubai Tourism Office is to increase the number of Spanish visitors, educate the trade segment by promoting knowledge about the destination and develop co-marketing campaigns with the main agencies and tour operators in Spain.
Tourism in Dubai aims to change the perception of the Spanish traveller about the destination, promoting it as a country that offers a great cultural wealth, nature, excellent gastronomy and hundreds of different activities for all types of clients that can be carried out. A destination that not only represents luxury and that adapts to different visitor profiles due to the variety of attractions it offers.
