Yas Island, a tourist hot spot in the United Arab Emirates, is attending the Riyadh Travel Fair 2014 in hopes of attracting visitors from the Saudi market.

Exhibiting at the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority’s stand, YAs Islamd representatives will showcase their destination to industry experts from the kingdom and the wider region.

There has been a “significant increase of visitors from Saudi Arabia to Abu Dhabi when comparing January 2014 with January 2013,” said Karim al-Guanaini, vice president of Yas Island Destination Management, in a released statement.

“Yas Island offers inclusive business and leisure packages and arrangements to suit the needs of Saudi families – something that sets Yas Island apart from other destinations,” he added, referring to the Yas Marina Circuit, home to the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi grand prix.

A released statement lauds Yas Island as “one of the most convenient destinations for Saudi travellers,” due to it being within driving distance from several Saudi cities.

Set to run from the 15th-18th April, the travel fair convenes international industry experts.
