Dubai / WAM
Dubai Tourism forged a strategic alliance with China’s internet conglomerate, Tencent to elevate the positioning of Dubai as the preferred destination for Chinese travellers, and enhancing their holistic experience across the city. The agreement will result in ecosystem-wide strategies spanning the Tencent network to expand Dubai Tourism’s marketing reach and penetration within China — one of the fastest growing source markets for Dubai.
Leveraging strength of Dubai Tourism’s industry influence and stakeholder network in Dubai, Tencent will promote its offerings including WeChat and WeChat Pay as an option for convenient and secure mobile payment for Chinese tourists at local outlets. In parallel, Dubai Tourism will encourage Dubai merchants to leverage Tencent Cloud and media solutions to enhance the overall city-experience for Chinese visitors and drive spending from this significant consumer base.
