The emirate of Dubai recorded a total of 12.08 million international overnight visitors in the first nine months of 2019, according to the latest figures released by Dubai’s Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism).
The surge in arrivals resulted in a 4.3% increase in volume growth compared to the same period last year.
In September alone, the emirate recorded 1.23 million visitors in the city which was an increase of 7.3% when compared to the same period in 2018.
Dubai Tourism’s multi-dimensional market-specific strategies, and customised campaigns continued to yield tangible results particularly showcasing the city’s ability to reinvent itself and remain ‘top-of mind’ to both new and repeat audiences across regular strongholds – India, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom and Oman.
Together with China that remained the world’s largest tourism volume driver, these five leading feeder countries surpassed the five million threshold for the first nine months of 2019.
