As part of our efforts to achieve the government’s vision and goal of making the UAE the most preferred and friendliest tourist destination for People of Determination, I am pleased to announce that Dubai will host the 4th edition of Accessible Travel and Tourism International Conference.
Top representatives from international organisations, decision-makers and experts from the government and private sectors will participate in the Summit to shed light on the needs and expectations of millions of tourists with disabilities who travel annually with regards to infrastructure, land transportation, air travel, tourism, entertainment facilities, shopping centres and other facilities and discuss effective strategies to meet these requirements.
The Conference has achieved overwhelming success levels in its 3rd edition, and I look forward to it getting your continuous support and participation. This global gathering will undoubtedly contribute towards achieving our vision of making the UAE, with Dubai in the lead, the best tourist destination in the world for People of Determination.
We will continue our unfettered support of the national economy by attracting a large segment of tourists with disabilities, accounting for 10% of the total global tourists – an estimated 120 million, who deserve to enjoy their lives and travel the world freely, with appropriate facilities and infrastructure.
I call upon you to work together to ensure Accessible Tourism gains solid ground and helps enhance the UAE’s competitiveness as a friendly tourist destination for everyone.
