- PRESS RELEASE
Abu Dhabi has been making a splash at Moscow's popular Golden Dolphin Show - Eastern Europe's biggest consumer water adventure exhibition. A seven-strong destination delegation, led by Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), were thronged by up to 4,000 visitors when they mounted an information pavilion at the show.
TCA Abu Dhabi was the show's official partner and Edward Grigoriev, the authority's country manager Russia and the CIS, welcomedvisitors and invited them to check out the emirate's expanding water adventure offering.
The Abu Dhabi centre was activated throughout the show with videos, a henna demonstration and an underwater photography competition with a weekend-getaway-prize provided by Abu Dhabi's five-star Eastern Mangroves Hotel& Spa by Anantara.
The promotion came as TCA Abu Dhabi looks to build on growing interest in the emirate from the Russian market. Last year some 19,633 Russians stayed in Abu Dhabi's hotels and hotel apartments - a 40% rise on 2011 - and taking the country into the Top 20 of the destination's hotel guest source markets.
The Russian guests accounted for 104,956 room nights - a rise of 46% on 2011 - with Russians being amongst the destination's longest-staying guests averaging 5.35 nights.
