Abu Dhabi — The Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA) will organise iftars for media in six cities across the Arabian Gulf during the holy month of Ramadan to raise the profile of the recently launched Abu Dhabi Summer Season, 2015.

Starting on June 21, Iftar banquets will be held in Jeddah, Riyadh and Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia, followed by Kuwait City, Qatar’s capital Doha and finally Muscat in Oman.

“Our valued GCC guests choose the emirate for its world-class tourist attractions and unique natural landscape that combines charming waterfronts, magical deserts and lush, green oases. Our Abu Dhabi Summer Season programme promises Gulf visitors family entertainment in a traditional atmosphere. The overlap of the holy month of Ramadan with our summer season offers makes Abu Dhabi even more special,” said Sultan Al Mansouri, KSA country manager, TCA Abu Dhabi, with responsibility for the GCC.

The three-month Abu Dhabi Summer Season is expected to attract a growing number of GCC tourists thanks to the wide array of Ramadan-inspired activities, followed by interactive entertainment activities held across Abu Dhabi City, Al Ain and the Western Region.

Promising ‘Fun for All’, the highly anticipated Summer Season will host more than 60 performances in venues and theatres across Abu Dhabi arranged by some of the UAE’s leading event companies. The series of live shows begin on July 18 with an Eid celebration in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, followed by theatrical performances for children, illusionists, and a range of other leading shows for adults and children.

Abu Dhabi hotels and shopping malls will feature promotional offers throughout, including a raffle draw across 12 of the emirate’s malls to win a Mercedes Benz every Saturday evening.  — Wam
