Trans­port and Hos­pi­tal­ity

Abu Dhabi Business Travel Guide - - Front Page -

FA­CIL­I­TAT­ING BOTH afore­men­tioned facets of mod­ern day Abu Dhabi life - work and play is an on­go­ing up­grade of the city’s trans­port links, es­pe­cially re­gard­ing air and road travel. The visa process has also be­come more stream­lined in re­cent years to aid ef­fi­cien­cies as de­mand to en­ter the city in­creases.

In­creases have reached as much as 17 per­cent in some com­par­a­tive yearon-year sta­tis­tics since 2015, and fall­ing into line with these im­prove­ments have been gen­eral en­hance­ments of the city’s pub­lic trans­port ar­ray too.

Pub­lic busses, taxis, fer­ries and air links have all been im­proved upon and mod­ernised, and in all truth, there is no real cut and dry rea­son to choose one over the other. It largely comes down to per­sonal pref­er­ence, where you need to be, and how long you have to get there when de­cid­ing on the best way to travel around in­ter­nally.

From a hos­pi­tal­ity per­spec­tive, lux­ury ho­tels have been cited as a strong fac­tor for the in­creas­ing num­ber of global meet­ings tak­ing place in Abu Dhabi, and grow­ing ap­peal to the busi­ness travel de­mo­graphic con­se­quently. Lo­ca­tions such as Emi­rates Palace and Jumeirah at Eti­had Tow­ers of­fer their own ex­clu­sive event venues, while leisure fa­cil­i­ties such as Fer­rari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Water­world pro­vide en­gag­ing al­ter­na­tives for event plan­ners.

Armed Forces Of­fi­cers Club & Ho­tel, Danat Jebel Dhanna Re­sort, and Al Marfa Pearl Ho­tels Man­age­ment LLC are fur­ther ex­am­ples of Abu Dhabi’s plen­ti­ful ho­tel as­sort­ment.

And event or­gan­is­ers and del­e­gates are also sub­se­quently tak­ing ad­van­tage of the sig­nif­i­cant tourism op­tions pro­vided by Abu Dhabi from year-round sun­shine to a se­lec­tion of pop­u­lar beaches.
