Ajman records tourism growth in 2024

WAM

Ajman witnessed a seven per cent increase in tourism revenue in the first quarter of 2024, driven by a three per cent rise in occupancy rates and a nine per cent growth in visitor numbers compared to the same period in 2023.

The emirate saw the average hotel stay duration increase by five per cent, according to a statement issued by the Ajman Tourism Development Department.

The statement says Ajman is aiming to showcase the emirate's rich cultural heritage, events calendar, diverse tourism offerings, and tourism growth at this month's Arabian Travel Market (ATM), where Ajman will also seek strategic partners to enhance cooperation and strengthen its position as a leading global tourism destination.

In 2023, October recorded a five per cent increase in tourism activity, leading to a significant 11 per cent rise in visitor numbers. This increase in occupancy rates contributed to a five per cent growth in revenue per available room (RevPAR). Consequently, total revenue increased by 11 per cent on an annual basis.

ATM 2024 takes place on 6th - 9th May at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
