The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) is introducing a version of its Abu Dhabi Specialists Programme for the travel trade industry in the GCC.
The e-learning platform was created to train and educate industry professionals across the GCC on all destination-related information about the emirate through a series of online courses.
Due to be released across the GCC in both English and Arabic, the programme will cater to industry partners inclusive of tour operators, travel agents, online travel agencies and wholesalers. It will provide travel trade professionals with up-to-date information about Abu Dhabi, as well as various multimedia tools and updated news on the emirate’s latest products and events.
Regional manager – Middle East and Africa, DCT Abu Dhabi, Nabeel M. Al Zarouni commented on the initiative: “This significant platform ensures that all participating industry partners within the GCC market have seamless and quick access to the latest content on the capital, including products, experiences, services, events and more.
“We look forward to engaging a large number of travel trade agents and helping them enhance their knowledge about Abu Dhabi, with all the diverse attractions and experiences we offer,” Al Zarouni added.
This move forms a fundamental part of DCT Abu Dhabi’s response to the COVID-19 crisis, which shifted all overseas roadshows, workshops and other forms of physical training onto virtual platforms.
