HE Saleh Mohamed Al Geziry, Director General of the Department of Tourism Development Ajman (ATDD), told Hotelier Middle East at the time: “Achieving the first rank in hotel occupancy in Q1 of 2021 is the stepping stone of where Ajman is headed. In harmony with a strategic vision and focusing on sustainability, the emirate will scale as an important touristic destination in the UAE and is becoming more and more attractive to tourists. It is remarkable what small cities can achieve when coupled with a wise leadership.”
Al Geziry said the figure was down to collaborative efforts across the emirate.
He explained: “Despite Ajman being the smallest emirate in the country, the collaborative efforts between Ajman Tourism Development Department and its hospitality stakeholders resulted in occupying the number one position in occupancy level among all other emirates.
