Eager to entice travellers from the Middle East, RCD Hotels has appointed BizGate Marketing & Consultancies as its representative in region.
BizGate Marketing & Consultancies will support the hospitality group’s sales and marketing efforts for its luxury properties in Florida (Eden Roc Miami Beach Resort and Nobu Hotel Miami Beach), Dominican Republic (Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana) and Mexico (Hard Rock Hotel Cancun, Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta, Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya and the UNICO 20˚87˚ Hotel Riviera Maya – the first of a new luxury all-inclusive concept).
While the frequency of Middle Eastern travellers to the USA is growing year-on-year, Mexico and Dominican Republic are new and undiscovered destinations for this market. Visa-free travel is offered to UAE nationals visiting the Dominican Republic, and the embassies of Mexico and Dominican Republic in Abu Dhabi facilitate travel for both Emiratis and expats residing in the UAE. Adding to this, Emirates Airline’s upcoming flights to Mexico will grant regional travellers seamless connectivity to the destination, as well as the Caribbean.
Corporate director of sales – Europe and Asia, RCD Hotels, Arturo Cruz commented: “The Middle East is a very important market for us and it was very crucial to establish a permanent presence in Dubai. We are looking forward to successful future work relationship with BizGate.”
Also remarking on the partnership was managing director, BizGate Marketing & Consultancies, Mohamad Masri: “We are proud to bring to the Middle East another great hospitality brand operating such amazing properties. We are very confident that this unique product will complement travel offering in the region.”
