About Dubai Office print

1. Consumer Assistance 2. Travel Agent Assistance 3. Visit Us 4. Staff
The Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) Dubai Office promotes tourism and provides general travel information on South Korea.

All brochures are provided free of charge including maps and travel guides. Visitors, especially those traveling to Korea, can approach any one of the staff if specific assistance is required.

1. Consumer Assistance
With our wide array of brochures, visitors might feel a little 'lost' as to which brochure they should be collecting for their travel. With an idea of travellers' itineraries, KTO will be able to help visitors select only the relevant brochures.

If a visit to KTO's office is inconvenient, travellers can drop us an email and the brochures can be mailed instead.

As our office is unable to offer direct assistance for hotel reservations, we can provide the contacts instead so that travellers can make their own reservations with ease.
In the event that travellers feel 'confused' by the massive number of tour itineraries available in the market as advertised in the daily newspapers, KTO can assist by 'analysing' with them the best itinerary to suit their needs.

From time to time, KTO also organizes public seminars to increase awareness of Korea as a holiday destination for specific target travelers, eg. Free & Easy travelers.

2. Travel Agent Assistance
Currently, KTO Dubai oversees promotional activities in the Middle East countries.

At the forefront, we closely work with travel agents as well as airlines in the development of new tour itineraries, provide training for staff to equip them with more effective selling skills, and introduce Korea to agents through familiarization tours.

KTO Dubai also organizes trade events to bring Korea closer to travel agents by inviting Korean delegates comprising of land operators, ski resort and theme park operators, as well as representatives from provincial and city government offices. These events have been instrumental in the development of creative Korean tour programmes, while bridging the gap between Korea and the respective markets.

In a supporting role, KTO Dubai also regularly produces press releases to ensure that new developments are constantly communicated and updated to the media. Our office also plans yearly marketing campaigns to maintain the image of Korea as a choice holiday destination through advertising in the local newspapers, on television and radio and even outdoors (eg. Bus advertising). Press trips are often planned so that invited journalists can experience Korea's distinctive culture, traditions and attractions, such as gourmet tours, visits to Korea's entertainment spots and shopping districts.

Periodically, KTO Dubai also distributes attractive tour shells for agents to print their itineraries.
