About the Event

Following the success of the inaugural Global Travel Week in London, Jacobs Media Group is set to host a special edition of the show in the Sultanate of Oman in partnership with Oman Ministry of Heritage & Tourism.

Designed exclusively for decision-makers, the event welcomes luxury buyers from GCC, Indian subcontinent and around the world to meet with leading Oman and international suppliers. One-to-one meetings will be conducted in the pioneering Connections Way format which helps build trust through memorable experiences that lead to long-lasting business relationships.

Connecting Travel, the Middle East flagship brand of Jacobs Media Group, will offer an insightful and focused seminar to discuss the latest challenges and trends that the luxury travel industry is facing.
