euromic, the premier international consortium of companies specializing in MICE travel, events and destination management, recently announced that it has added a new World Affiliate in Dubai, Emeco DMC in the Emirates. The company, which has been operating under the name Al Abjar Tourism since 2003, has long been a leader within the tourism sector in the Emirates.
"euromic is thrilled to welcome Emeco DMC in the Emirates into our select association,” says Mr. Giancarlo Carrera, President of euromic. “They are a true destination management company capable of saving our clients time and money with solid contacts and a flair for creative programs. It is a privilege to count them among us."
In recent years, Dubai has emerged as both an international business center and a tourism hotspot. The Emirates encompass a wide variety of scenery and activities in a relatively small area, making it possible to experience sand dunes, mountains and beaches in one day.
Meeting and convention facilities, modern hotels and a multitude of dining and entertainment choices are readily available throughout the region. The Dubai International Airport, hub for Emirates Airlines, provides easy accessibility with direct flights from over 200 points around the world. Emeco DMC in the Emirates also operates a joint venture in Muscat, the capital city of Oman, to assist planners interested in combining and/or extending their Emirates experience with this unique destination.
“euromic stands for excellence in destination management and we are honored to become a part of this organization,” says Mr. Elhamy El Zayat, Chairman of Emeco DMC in the Emirates. Mr. Karim Aly, General Manager, added: “We are excited to introduce many more visitors to the bustling souks and majestic desert of Dubai through this prestigious association.”
