A primary objective of Dubai's Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing or Dubai Tourism (DTCM) is to promote and facilitate investments in the development of Dubai’s tourism sector in order to elevate it as a choice destination. Hence, Dubai Tourism welcomes interested investors from all around the world to make their mark on Dubai's future. Dubai Tourism will lend you a guiding hand every step of the way. Whether you want to invest in a new hotel development or have an idea for a startup that will help reshape a visitors' experience, our Investments Relations team are here to support and lend their expertise about business in Dubai. We have created a seamless two-step process by which you can engage with Dubai Tourism without leaving your office. Below are the steps we will take together towards the realisation of your dream project:
Complete the investment form
including all necessary information. This form helps us collect specific details behind your idea, helping us to better understand your proposition.
DTCM will carry out a preliminary review to assess the tourism alignment as well as the commercial and financial strength of the proposition. Then a representative will contact you to schedule a meeting – face to face or virtually – to gather additional information about the project, if necessary. Dependent on the nature of the proposition, the investment's representative will respond with the appropriate next steps to support your proposition.
Rest assured that all information provided is secure and held with the highest levels of confidentiality.
As part of our transparent process we, on occasion, may decline a proposal. An example of a declined proposal is if no aspect of the proposal is related to the tourism industry or if it requires support outside our jurisdiction. In this case, we will advise you on how to improve your proposition or direct it to another party with potential interest.
