In addition to all of the exciting in-park activities IMG worlds of Adventure will be taking the excitement on the road during DSS and making special character appearances through-out various malls in Dubai along with a host of competitions and promotional offers.
Lennard Otto CEO of IMG Worlds of Adventure said: “Over the past 11 months since we have opened the doors at IMG Worlds of Adventure, we have welcomed both local and international guests to the park. With a third of the world’s population being within a 4 hour flight of Dubai, the emirate has always been a tourism hub and consequently will always be a favourite tourist destination attracting a significant number of guests to the region particularity for the retail sector and now themed entertainment. An example of this would be how Dubai Summer Surprises has become an iconic event in the city and across the globe for the last 20 years, and as we lead up to the park’s 1st year anniversary, we are thrilled to partner with DSS on the first edition of the IMG Worlds Summer Carnival. We look forward to working with DSS for years to come and together bringing the best of themed entertainment and retail to both residents and visitors of Dubai”.
“Dubai’s family offering has long been one of the most important pillars of the city’s growing proposition, led by the ambition of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Prime Minister and Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, for the emirate to be the world’s premier family destination. Families and couples also make up the majority – 64 per cent in 2016 – of all international overnight visitors to Dubai, underlining Dubai’s attractiveness among these visitor segments. The opening of a number of headline theme parks last year have added to the city’s long list of established attractions and have further cemented Dubai’s position as a leading tourism destination. As more theme parks come on line in the coming years, we expect them to play an increasingly prominent role in driving visitation to Dubai, helping us to realise our Tourism Vision 2020 goals of increasing the tourism sector’s contribution to Dubai’s GDP and welcoming 20 million visitors per year by the start of the next decade,” said Issam Kazim, CEO, DCTCM.
