The birth of tourism in Oman

OMAN

Nouhad Dammous, editor-in-chief of Hospitality News Middle East, forecasts a bright outlook for Oman’s tourism industry as the sultanate’s diversification efforts gather pace.

Oman, a country of all seasons, is the oldest continuously independent state of the Arab world. With a gleaming safety record and a society known for being moderate and tolerant, the country launched its tourism strategy with the primary aim of increasing international arrivals to 12 million visitors by 2040.Oman, a country of all seasons, is the oldest continuously independent state of the Arab world.

The sultanate’s tourism sector has great growth potential and is contributing positively to Oman’s economic diversification. Popular destinations like Salalah, Nizwa, Mutrak Souk and Jabal Akhdar showcase Oman’s splendid tourist assets: its historical landmarks, cultural heritage and natural beauty.
Shaping the future of tourism is Oman’s Tourism College, which was established almost 20 years ago to develop local talent and support the Omanization drive.
In addition, incentive packages and tax exemptions for foreign companies have spurred further investment in the hospitality sector. At Hospitality Services, we are excited to announce that the HORECA Network has expanded beyond Lebanon, Kuwait, Jordan and Saudi Arabia to the shores of Oman, with the first HORECA Oman debuting from May 31 to June 2, 2022.
Gathering hospitality and foodservice professionals from around the region, this annual business meeting place promises to shine a bright light on the local hospitality and F&B scene. We look forward to seeing you there!
