Dubai’s Global Village launches new travel trade portal for agents

Travel agents can win a AED15,000 voucher in launch competition and create bespoke experiences for clients

Global Village, a vast cultural theme park and fairground attraction in Dubai, has launched a fully digitised, one-stop portal for its travel trade partners.

From tickets to attractions including Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! museum, Carnaval fun fair and Harbour Force stunt show to dining and shopping opportunities, the new travel trade portal has everything needed to tailor the perfect package for visitors.

The platform allows partners to download materials, including images, videos, brochures and offers.

It’s anticipated the portal will play a pivotal role in building relationships with tour operators and travel agents, allowing them to deliver personalised services to their clients

Commenting on the launch, Global Village executive director, Marketing & Events Jaki Ellenby said: “We, at Global Village, are committed to providing enhanced services to our travel trade partners and keeping them up to date on the latest happenings. Our easy-to-navigate, user-friendly portal acts as an enhanced informational hub with customised resources and essential tools where partners can easily book tickets and avail exclusive offers to simplify the travel planning and promotion process. We very much look forward to welcoming all of our partners on board and to working together to make this a great success.”
