世博会引发酒店预订咨询高峰

据《NewsDog》报道,2020 年世博会倒计时一周年之际,迪拜酒店业内高管和分析人士纷纷表示,已有客户咨询预订世博会期间的迪拜酒店客房。

Now we’ve proved it – a sneak peek of Expo 2020 Dubai is enough to convince anyone to return when gates open for an unmissable experience.

For the past six weeks, members of the public have been visiting Expo 2020 Dubai for an up-close look at the site, which is set to welcome the world for an unforgettable 173 days from 20 October next year.

And, after seeing ‘The World’s Greatest Show in the Making’ first-hand, the 3,000-plus tour visitors have sent a clear message – they can’t wait to experience our once-in-a-lifetime celebration for themselves.

A post-tour survey revealed that, on average, visitors rated the likelihood of them coming to Expo 2020 as 9.7 out of 10. Satisfaction with the tour averaged 9.2 out of 10, and Expo’s relevance to each individual tallied at 8.9 out of 10.

The free tours began on Saturday, 20 July 2019 and concluded Saturday, 31 August 2019. Seats were booked out within three hours of being made available, leading to more being released and promptly snapped up again, this time within minutes.

The initiative connected Expo 2020 with people across the seven emirates, reflecting the spirit of hospitality and generosity that the UAE will showcase when it says ‘hayyakum’ (Arabic for ‘welcome’) to the world in 2020.

More than 100 tours took place, welcoming visitors from 79 nationalities. Tours were also organised for special groups such as senior citizens, school classes, Boy Scouts and Girl Guides. In total, more than 14,500 seats were requested.

Manal Al Bayat, Chief Community Engagement Officer, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “We were delighted with the success of the sneak preview bus tours, which have highlighted just how excited the nation is to say ‘hayyakum’ to the world at Expo 2020.

“Next month (October 2019) will mark the ‘One Year to Go’ countdown to our once-in-a-lifetime celebration, and we’ll have further opportunities for everyone in the UAE to be part of the Expo story as we journey together towards the World’s Greatest Show.”

Expo 2020 Dubai is set to welcome 192 participating countries and millions of visitors for the largest event ever staged in the Arab world, taking place in Dubai South from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021.
