GCC travellers contribute to increasing occupancy rate of Jumeirah Group’s properties worldwide
Dubai, 10 April 2013: Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, will highlight its 20 luxury hotels, resorts and residences across 11 destinations worldwide during a GCC roadshow aimed to signify the importance of GCC guests staying in their properties.
The road show stops over in five cities (Riyadh, Jeddah, Kuwait City, Doha and Abu Dhabi) from 27th April to 1st May 2013, addressing top travel trade, tour operators, travel agencies and clients.
The Group reported an 11.3% increase in occupancy rates to 71.3% for the first quarter of 2013, compared to the same period in 2012. While the revenue growth of the GCC market business into each region is up 41.2% on last year.
Thanks to Jumeirah doubling the number of hotels it operates around the world, the hospitality group has witnessed impressive revenue growth from its core markets in the first quarter of 2013. Revenue from the GCC market for hotels in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) grew by 20.3%, while in Asia Pacific it soared an impressive 474.3% and in Europe experienced an increase of 108.6%.
“We are experiencing fantastic occupancy rates on a global level, which is contributing to the growing hospitality and tourism sectors, especially in the GCC,” said Christian Pertl, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Jumeirah Group in MEASA region. “Our hotels’ successful performance can be attributed to the thoughtful and generous service offered to our guests, as well as the quality of our hotels in each destination.”
Jumeirah Group will also showcase its brand promise – STAY DIFFERENTTM – and its full range of luxurious and innovative offerings for business and leisure guests.
Representatives from Jumeirah Group properties in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Istanbul, London, Rome, Frankfurt, the Maldives and Baku will meet with regional travel trade partners to share exclusive insights and network with major corporate and leisure agencies.
The hospitality group continues to expand globally and regionally, Jumeirah expects to open Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel in Kuwait and Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Hotel in late Spring 2013.
