Sharjah working on attracting more Russian tourists in 2019
SCTDA, Air Arabia will host an event in Moscow to showcase Sharjah as a tourism hub
Sharjah is aiming at attracting more Russian tourists this year, as the emirate has witnessed an increase in visitors from the country.
According to a report by Emirates News Agency (WAM), in 2018 Russian tourists were second on the list of overnight guests in Sharjah with 328,000 visitors travelling to the emirate.
To boost tourism in Sharjah, the Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA) and Air Arabia will be organising an event in Moscow on 11 September.
The event is part of SCTDA's efforts to make sure that the emirate is widely promoted across tourism and travel related events in Russia. The event will shed light on the emirate's latest tourism offerings, including leisure-related activities which will position the emirate as a family-oriented tourist destination.
