Jumeirah to Showcase its Meetings & Incentives Offerings at GIBTM 2013 in Abu Dhabi
Dubai, 24 March 2013: Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts in the UAE will showcase its diverse and growing meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) portfolio in this year’s edition of the Gulf Incentive, Business Travel and Meetings Exhibition (GIBTM), which takes place from 25-27March 2013 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC).
Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts recorded a 15% increase in group room nights for 2012 compared to 2011, capitalising on the strength of its eight properties in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The top source markets for groups segment for all Jumeirah properties in Dubai and Abu Dhabi since the beginning of 2012 have been the United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Saudi Arabia, Germany and Switzerland. The greatest growth in business for the Dubai hotels has been from Saudi Arabia, Russia and South Africa, while for Abu Dhabi from United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and United States.
Christian Pertl, Vice President of Sales and Marketing in Dubai & MEASA, Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts said: “We are delighted at the increase in corporate and meetings business that our MICE offerings achieved in 2012. This has been driven not only by the quality of our hotels’ facilities and the special attention given to MICE business, but also by the speed of our response time to enquiries and the addition of two new properties to the UAE portfolio, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi and Jumeirah Creekside in Dubai.”
In late Spring 2013 Jumeirah expects to open Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel in Kuwait, which has extensive meeting and conference facilities.
Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts will be participating at GIBTM in both the Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing pavilion and the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority pavilion. Both stands will include representatives from the group and participating hotels including Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Jumeirah Emirates Towers,Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Creekside Hotel and Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Hotel.
