Corporate Profile

Corporate Profile

Founded in Dubai by Mr. Ghassan Aridi and his partners in 1996, Alpha Destination Management is the leading destination management company (DMC) and a pioneer in the tourism sector in the Arabian Gulf.
Over the last two decades, the company has established itself as one of the most credible and reputed brands in the tourism industry not only in the Gulf region but also on a global scale.
As a market leader, Alpha Destination Management sets the standard for excellence in the travel and tourism industry with its outstanding expertise, unique products, unmatched experience and vast local and international network.

The outlook for the travel and tourism industry across the GCC remains robust, with the UAE firmly leading the pack. Tourism continues to be at the forefront of economic growth in the region driven by a number of strategic factors that are contributing to its success. Primary among these are:
  • Prioritisation of tourism on the national agendas by governments in the GCC has given it a major impetus. Accelerating growth of tourism are massive investment in the sector, relaxation of travel policies and procedures and strategic regional collaborations.
  • The GCC, led by the UAE, has emerged as the hub of the world’s fastest growing airlines and low-cost carriers, that has proved to be a major stimulus for tourism in the region connecting the countries to bring in visitors from every corner of the globe.
  • Be it airports, Metro, rail, road or the advanced telecommunications system, the GCC’s existing and planned infrastructure are at par with international standards and the key to the success of the destination making it globally accessible.
  • Boosting the appeal for the destination are an exciting range of leisure and cultural attractions, iconic architectural developments, diverse choice of hotels, unique dining outlets, fabulous shopping malls and a year-long calendar of events as well as the ultimate sun, sea and sand experiences.
Over the years, the success of Alpha Destination Management has run parallel to the steady growth of the GCC countries and, in particular, the UAE. Capitalizing on the massive opportunities in the travel and tourism sector across the region, Alpha catered to the requirements of its partners with a wide range of world-class services and products which contributed to both the success of the company as well the destinations.
