The event is held in co-operation with the Arab Tourism Organisation (ATO), the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) and Messe Berlin.
One year after the beginning of the Arab Spring, the Forum will provide an excellent platform to exchange ideas and experiences on projects and perspectives of the tourism sector in Arab countries, especially in Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Jordan and the GCC States.
More than 300 participants are expected to attend the Forum, among them high representatives of the Arab tourism sector as well as respected tourism experts and decision-makers. The forum will start with a session, moderated by Hannes Shied, Managing Director of Horwath HTL Dubai on the situation development in the GCC states, looking specifically at Abu Dhabi and Sustainable Tourism Development, Destination Development in Oman and major sporting events in Qatar.
The day continues with a panel looking at the ‘Roadmap to Recovery’ looking at how the tourism sector in countries affected by political upheaval can kick-start their tourism efforts. The second session, moderated by Ruediger Knospe, Managing Director of Horwath HTL Germany will examine Tunisia, how Egypt can restore its destination image, Jordan’s ongoing development to a multi faceted tourism destination and the roadmap to recovery – the tourism industry as a driver for job creation and Economic Development
