DMG and Kanoo launch new travel system
Dubai , September 25, 2007
DMG World Media Dubai has teamed up with Kanoo Travel to offer an innovative internet based travel system for participants in its exhibitions.
This follows a research conducted by DMG following the huge success of Index and The Big 5, two of the largest annual trade shows staged in the Middle East which attract huge numbers of exhibitors and visitors to Dubai every year creating massive demand for hotel rooms and flights.
'With both shows recording significant growth every year (in 2006, Index attracted 36,994 visitors, 1,575 exhibitors from 57 countries plus 35 country pavilions, while The Big 5 welcomed 41,058 visitors, 2,158 exhibitors from 67 countries and 30 country pavilions), we recognised that it was essential to offer our exhibitors and visitors a travel solution that was quick, easy and professional,' said managing director of dmg world media Dubai Bernard Walsh.
Linked to the Index and Big 5 websites (www.indexexhibition.com and www.thebig5exhibition.com), one click will enable visitors and exhibitors to book their flights, hotels and transfers and arrange visas via a downloadable booking form, email, telephone or fax.
The website will feature all of the leading four and five star hotel properties in Dubai along with comprehensive hotel information and rates and will also detail flight prices into Dubai (both economy and business) from the GCC countries, wider Middle East and North Africa.
'Kanoo Travel has put in place a dedicated team of travel consultants that will operate six days a week, and all travel requests will be handled and completed within 24 hours,' added Walsh.
Index 2007 will be held from November 1 to 5 at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre while The Big 5 takes place at the same venue from November 25 to 29, 2007.TradeArabia News Service
