Eager to further entice Vietnamese travellers, Copthorne Hotel Dubai recently played host to a handful of travel agents, tour operators and journalists from Vietnam, who were visiting the UAE for a three-day familiarisation trip.
The Vietnamese tourism market holds great potential for Dubai, with tourist numbers increasing year-on-year and Emirates Airline offering flights to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
The familiarisation trip was organised in collaboration with Rida International Tourism & Travel, a GCC-based DMC. Agents from Deks Air Vietnam Travel & Tours, Atoz Travel, Ido Trading Travel & Event Co. Ltd., Tugo.com, Vietravel, VYC Travel, Royal Brunei Airlines, VJ Links Travel, Vini Travel and Lua Viet Tour were invited to explore the emirate and the hotel’s accommodation, service and culinary offerings.
Adding to this, journalists from Vietnam FDL, Brands Vietnam, Truong Son Media and Thanhnien News also took part in the experience to promote Dubai to Vietnamese travellers.
General manager, Copthorne Hotel Dubai, Glenn Nobbs declared: “This is a great opportunity to support the government’s efforts to strengthen awareness of the emirate and promote the destination to all types of travellers across the globe. There is no better way for a travel agent to sell a destination to their clients than to experience it first-hand for themselves. In addition, the FAM trip will enable journalists to write an informative and creative content for their readers.”
Throughout their stay in the emirate, agents and journalists visited the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall and Dubai Museum, and enjoyed a guided city tour.
Meanwhile at Copthorne Hotel Dubai, the delegates experienced warm and welcoming hospitality and high standards of service.
Nobbs concluded: “Dubai appeals to a wide spectrum of visitors and we hope that this FAM trip will result in increased interests from the Vietnam tourism market. We plan to host more groups in the future to let them see first-hand just how welcoming and convenient the city is for business and leisure trips.”
