The research, conducted in both the United Kingdom (UK) and the UAE found that development and tourism go hand in hand in Dubai, that new landmarks like The Palm are already becoming recognised internationally as 21st century tourist icons and Dubai is considered to be the world city for architectural innovation.

Nakheel conducted the research in the UK, from where the largest number of visitors to Dubai are from, and in the UAE during April 2007.

The aim was to find out views about the importance of tourism in Dubai and how new landmarks are contributing to Dubai's economy and success.
