Sharjah Tourism Board conducts a 4-city road show in India

The Sharjah Tourism board conducted a 4-city tourism promotional roadshow for stakeholders & travel agents in Chennai, Hyderabad, Jaipur and Ahmedabad from October 9’ 2017 to October 12’ 2017 respectively. The aim of the show was to increase visibility of the emirate of Sharjah as a cultural, business, leisure & educational destination amongst Indian travelers and to increase engagement with education boards, tourism sector, policy makers and business community.

The event witnessed huge attendance from travel agents who were seen interacting with DMCs, hoteliers, airline officials and management of Sharjah Tourism board. The roadshow created a platform for representatives of Sharjah Tourism board and other delegates to interact with travel agents based in these 4 cities and how to effectively promote & position Sharjah.

H.E. Khalid Jasim Al Midfa Naiken, Chairman, Sharjah Commerce & Tourism Development authority, Govt. of Sharjah, “India is a very lucrative market and we are aware of the potential it holds in terms of inbound visitor traffic into Sharjah. We are happy to be tapping this important market through our four-city roadshow. We received an overwhelming response from travel agents and stakeholders and we look forward to doing more roadshows in the state in near future.”

He further added “We want to promote Sharjah as a cultural & education destination for Indian travelers. Sharjah has a lot to offer in terms of tourism, culture and commerce and it is imperative that the scope of engagement between both countries should now be taken to second level. India is one of the most crucial and promising tourism markets for Sharjah and the emirate every year attracts thousands of tourists and visitors from the country. It is also a safe destination for women and we want to highlight that”

Sharjah’s hotels and resorts are witnessing a significant surge in tourist arrivals. The heavy turnout at beach hotels and resorts in the emirate has exceeded expectations. Numerous cultural, artistic, entertainment and shopping festivals hosted by Sharjah, not to mention special promotions offered by major malls and shopping centers since the beginning of the year, have added to the emirate’s attractions in the eyes of visitors.
