Abu Dhabi launches industry specialist program

The Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT) Abu Dhabi has launched an e-learning platform which will educate travel trade industry professionals with all destination-related information about the emirate through a series of online courses.

Available to Australian and New Zealand travel professionals, the Abu Dhabi Specialist Program also offers incentives to register including four weekly prizes of $250 gift cards per week for six weeks and a final prize of a five-star trip to Abu Dhabi.

The initiative comes as part of DCT Abu Dhabi’s response to the Covid-19 crisis, which brought all workshops and other forms of physical training to a halt.

“The Abu Dhabi Specialist Program is a significant step forward and through it we will be able to reach a larger number of travel trade agents across the globe, including previously untapped markets like Canada and New Zealand,” said Saood Al Hosani, Acting Undersecretary at DCT Abu Dhabi.

“This training and education platform ensures that all participating industry partners have easy and quick access to the latest content on Abu Dhabi, thus making the destination promotion aspect of their job much easier.”

The Abu Dhabi Specialist Program will be available from www.abudhabispecialist.com May 11.
