presence of official dignitaries, who will enlighten the visitors on some of
the recent developments at the emirate.
Nuaimi, Director, Promotions and
Overseas Offices, Department of Culture and Tourism- Abu Dhabi, said, “Owing to
the growing levels of disposable income in the hands of Indian travellers, we
believe that India is a crucial market with a potential to expand the tourism
inflow in Abu Dhabi. It therefore becomes imperative to educate people about
everything that Abu Dhabi has to offer, and re-shape notions regarding its cost
heaviness. The Abu Dhabi Week strives to amplify not only the splendor of Abu
Dhabi but also highlight its pocket-friendliness in terms of family vacations,
solo travels, film shoots, trade and business, and destination weddings, among
