RAK Tourism Authority opens office in Denmark
Abu Dhabi: Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) on Tuesday announced the opening of their first international representation office in the Nordics in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The authority already has offices in Saudi Arabia, the UK, Russia and Germany.
“The Nordic market is one of the fastest growing sectors and last year it ranked in our top ten source markets for visitors,” RAKTDA CEO Haitham Mattar said in a statement.
“Already in 2018, we have seen growth in year-on-year figures up 26.2 per cent in the first quarter. The opening of the Copenhagen office provides an important resource to grow visitors from the Nordic countries and for our partners in the Emirate to access this market.”
In 2017 approximately 18,000 Nordic visitors stayed in the emirate, either on holiday or on business visits. In the first quarter of 2018, RAK attracted almost 10,000 visitors, an increase of 26.2 per cent when compared to the same period of 2017.
