14,500 delegates in Dubai for corporate leisure event
Dubai, April 7, 2014
The Dubai Convention and Events Bureau (DCEB), a division of the Department of Commerce and Tourism Marketing (DTCM), welcomed the first of 14,500 incentive delegates arriving from Nu Skin Enterprises in China yesterday (April 6).
DCEB won the bid for Dubai to host the Nu Skin incentive mega-group in January last year, fending off competition from Macau, Seoul in South Korea and Singapore.
The delegation, which represents the largest corporate incentive group in UAE history, are arriving in seven waves, with one wave averaging around 2,000 people arriving every day until April 12.
The last wave will depart the UAE on April 17, and each group will be in the country for five days.
Dubai’s offer included iconic landmarks, world-class accommodation and transport infrastructure, with an offering of leisure events and activities.
All the groups will experience an identical tour programme which will take them to see the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, Al Bastakiya, Dubai Creek and the Palm Jumeirah along with other locations in addition to select areas of interest around Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. - TradeArabia News Service
