In Kuwait for example according to Alpen’s October 2012 GCC Hospitality Industry Report, by 2015 the Gulf state hopes to welcome one million tourist arrivals per annum.
In Qatar, tourist arrivals are expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.9% between now and 2022, and the government’s US$65 billion commitment to infrastructure development has proved to be a major incentive for long term investment by leading hospitality providers.
Tourist arrivals into Oman are expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7%, between 2012 and 2022 and the Ministry of Tourism aims to increase the GDP contribution of tourism from 2% in 2011 to around 3.5% in 2015.
Occupancy rates are also expected to increase from 53% in 2011 to 58.6% by 2016, Tourist arrivals in the UAE are forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% between 2012 and 2022. “The GCC leisure market is one of our fastest growing guest segments.
The summer period is traditionally a time when corporate travel declines and leisure increases especially family travel. This offer is designed to increase our share of that market, and our package has already been exceptionally well received at this year’s Arabian Travel Market,” added Kandil.
