H.E. Khalid Jasim Al Midfa, Chair­man of the Shar­jah Com­merce and Tourism De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity, graced the oc­ca­sion as Chief Guest. The awards glit­tered through the night whilst dig­ni­taries from con­sulates, travel, tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity pro­fes­sion­als at­tended to be recog­nised for their un­tir­ing ef­forts to place United Arab Emi­rates as the fourth most vis­ited desti­na­tion in the world. This year two great stal­warts who rev­o­lu­tionised the travel and tourism in­dus­try in the re­gion were recog­nised for their ef­forts: Ja­mal Ab­dul­nazar, CEO of Cozmo Travel, re­ceived the Gallery of Leg­ends award whilst Nasir Ja­mal Khan, CEO Al Na­boodah Travel, was recog­nised as the DDP Game Changer.

Ara­bian Travel Awards is a plat­form for the Mid­dle East mar­ket to ap­pre­ci­ate the ef­forts of the travel spe­cial­ists who have con­trib­uted to the boom­ing travel and hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try. The aim is to en­cour­age them to con­tinue pro­mot­ing tourism in the re­gion es­pe­cially as all roads are set and ready for the Expo 2020 and be­yond.

Wel­com­ing the guests at the event, SanJeet, Men­tor, Ara­bian Travel Awards, said, “Our aim through the Ara­bian Travel Awards is to recog­nise and en­cour­age the tal­ent in some of the most im­por­tant sec­tors such as travel, tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity which con­trib­utes to the sus­tain­able growth in the econ­omy of the coun­try. From the time we started out in this re­gion over 15 years ago, we have seen the Mid­dle East leapfrog to a much open-minded, tech savvy so­ci­ety yet thrive on the tra­di­tional value prac­tices of the hu­man el­e­ments which makes it a jux­ta­po­si­tion of two worlds meet­ing at a mean­ing­ful junc­ture. This year, we had over 25 coun­tries sub­mit­ting nearly 50,000 votes hence, we have nearly 60 awards to recog­nise the gi­ants who have con­trib­uted to this coun­try's econ­omy.”
