The UAE has identified tourism as a long term revenue source in a post-oil based economy. Investment has been made in new theme parks, leisure and attractions to draw domestic and international visitors to the country. The UAE’s theme park revenue is expected to increase from USD 470 million this year to USD 837 million in 2019.
By 2020, ten major new theme parks and two safari parks are expected to open. With the intensifying competition in the region, parks will need to ensure operational efficiency by supporting park operations with the implementation of new technologies to ensure revenue growth and customer satisfaction.
TPLA Experience Tech UAE will be held on 5-6 September 2016 in Sheraton Grand Hotel, Dubai, UAE. This summit is organized by ACM, with the support of Dubai Municipality and Themed Entertainment Association (TEA), and will focus on enhancing guest experience, driving operational efficiency and optimizing revenue performance.
