Summer 2019

Welcome to the Summer 2019 issue of ttgmena luxury. In addition to the collection of news, views, trends and opinions from the MENA region and further afield, in this edition of the magazine, we explore how customising the experience ranks as a prominent priority for tourism and hospitality providers in the UAE on page 12. On page 20, we analyse the current trends influencing the weddings and honeymoons sector, including the way technology – and more specifically social media and other online platforms – is guiding the decisions of clients across the board. John Northern, the new executive vice president for the Middle East, India and Indian Ocean at Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, talks to us about how technology has become an integral part of travel on page 22 and on page 24 we travel to Europe to see how the region is keeping up with current trends to offer visitors the most enhanced experience. Africa’s newest luxury destination is the focus of our Emerging Destination report on page 26, where Rwanda Development Board shares the latest luxury openings and top travel experiences in the land of a thousand hills. On page 30, we invite a collection of experts to discuss the current trend for transformational travel and how despite technology and social media having some impact on the decline of connectivity on a more human level, it has also played a huge part in this shift towards how people experience transformational travel. So peel yourselves away from your busy schedules for a moment, have a read of our latest issue and let us know what you think.
