India’s fastest-growing luxury segments; travel, hospitality, wellness, health care, education, fashion, and lifestyle are coming together for a trade show in Dubai on December 4 and 5.
The show aims to promote India’s portfolio of luxury products and services to Emiratis, Arabs, and high net-worth Asians.
Exhibitors include Incredible India (Ministry of Tourism, Government of India), Cox & Kings (an established travel company), Cox & Kings Weddings, Ramoji Film City, Air Aura, Sansha Spa, and UAE Exchange, among others.
The India Tourism Office said that the decision to relax visa policies for Emiratis is expected to increase tourist traffic from the UAE to India. I.R.V. Rao, assistant director at the Office, said the new policy is expected to double the number of tourists from the UAE to India annually, which currently stands at around 52,000.
The opening ceremony will be attended by Grace Princesa, Philippines ambassador; Dick Patrick Esparon, Seychelles ambassador; Seongdoo Ahn, Korean Consul General; Clayton Kimpton, New Zealand Consul General.
Dubai commands 30 per cent of the Middle East’s and 60 per cent of the UAE’s luxury market. The UAE tops the list of Middle East countries with the highest number of tourists to India, with a steady year-on-year increase.
