“Travellers no longer have to choose between destinations, and we’re so excited to take this opportunity to elaborate on this new tourism relationship,” he added.
The webinar will feature a variety of speakers from each destination, including Eyal Carlin, IMOT’s Tourism Commissioner for North America, and Chad Martin, IMOT’s Northeast Regional Director.
Speakers representing Dubai include Soraya Alolama of Visit Dubai, Sean Campbell of Emirates and more.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on everyone, especially the tourism industry,” says IMOT’s Martin. “We’re thrilled to take this opportunity to shine a light on an exciting development that will ultimately provide visitors with a new opportunity when planning travel to the Middle East, for the first time seamlessly being able to include both Israel and Dubai within the same trip.”
