The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) is set to launch a version of its “Abu Dhabi Specialists Programme” specifically for the travel trade industry in the GCC market.

The e-learning platform has been created to train and educate industry professionals across the GCC with all destination-related information about the emirate through a series of online courses.

Set to be rolled out across the GCC in both English and Arabic, the programme will cater to industry partners including tour operators, travel agents, online travel agencies, and wholesalers.

The programme will provide travel trade professionals with accurate information about Abu Dhabi.

It will give access to multimedia tools, and updated news on the emirate’s latest products and events, supporting and encouraging travel trade professionals to promote the destination to consumers within the GCC market.

“This significant platform ensures that all participating industry partners within the GCC market have seamless and quick access to the latest content on the capital, including products, experiences, services, events and more,” said Nabeel M. Al Zarouni, Middle East and Africa Regional Manager at DCT Abu Dhabi.
