Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Tourism, commented on the win: “We are very pleased to have won this award, which recognises the great strides we have made to promote Dubai in Australia and New Zealand and encourage more visitors. Over the past 10 months we have doubled our resources in the region and developed a strong team.
