Business leaders and officials from the UAE and Montenegro gathered recently at the new and acclaimed Dubai Palazzo Versace Hotel to introduce and discover Montenegro, Europe’s newest hot spot.
The Discover Montenegro Now event came to Dubai as a result of an initiative seeded by Romy Hawatt, CEO of the Riana Group and owner of Airways Aviation and the luxury destination management company Discover Montenegro. Hawatt’s aim is to formally introduce the Montenegro opportunity to the Middle East and other important locations, commencing with this launch event in Dubai.
Presentations were delivered by Montenegrin Government officials H.E. Branimir Gvozdenovic, the Minister of Sustainable Development and Tourism, H.E. Ivan Brajovic, the Minister of Transport and Maritime Affairs and H.E. Darko Uskokovic, the Ambassador of Montenegro to the UAE.
His Excellency Darko Uskokovic said: “The event was a fantastic success and provided attendees with a unique insight into this rapidly emerging tourism and investment destination.”
With daily connections via Belgrade, Montenegro is a burgeoning market with a promising future. Direct flights are hoped to commence between Dubai and Montenegro in the not too distant future with opening discussions taken place between the Montenegrin Minister of Sustainable Development and Tourism and the FlyDubai CEO Gaith Al Gaith under the kind auspices of HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum at the Dubai Airshow last month.
