AFTA has confirmed its ongoing strategic destination partnership with Dubai Tourism will continue throughout 2017, with the two organisations committed to working together to strengthen and expand travel agents’ knowledge of Dubai as a great stopover and holiday destination.
Dubai Tourism will tap into AFTA’s successful Member Webinar Program to introduce the brand new Dubai Expert online training program to travel agents. The first of the 2017 webinars took place yesterday and focused on helping travel agents gain confidence selling the Arabian city to consumers.
AFTA has also confirmed Dubai Tourism as the Gold Emcee Sponsors of the National Travel Industry Awards. Anjali Rao, multi-award winning journalist, TV personality and presenter will again herald the Gala Dinner on Saturday 22 July.
“Anjali is a true professional. It isn’t an easy gig being emcee of the industry’s biggest night. We were so impressed with Anjali’s poise, accuracy and energy in which she hosted the 2016 Gala Dinner that we’ve asked her to return in 2017,” said Jayson Westbury, AFTA Chief Executive.
