The glitz, glamour and money to be earned in the UAE are infinite. This week the Dh100 billion Bawadi project launch commenced the building of thirty one hotels and other services within the next eight years and Dubai is still craving for more innovative plans since there is so much capital to work with within the region.
Since Dubai is receiving millions of tourists each year, last year reaching to six million and forecasted to reach fifteen million by 2010, it is necessary for contractors, businesses and the government to accommodate to the influx of tourists, estimating 80,000 additional hotel suites to be made by the end of the decade.
There are still dozens of tourism projects still in the works. Currently the contractors are in phase one of the 2010 deadline to include the Bawadi project which includes inspirations of legendary buildings from across the globe to the dazzling skyline of Dubai. The subsequent phases will be primarily investor ventures which are expected to be completed by 2016.
Dubai’s neighbouring emirate Abu Dhabi publicized it would increase tourism projects worth Dh100 billion, which would include their own ski slope to be placed in Marina Mall. This slope will further enhance Abu Dhabi’s image as a central attraction for sightseers and consumers alike.
The Trump Organization in association with the Nakheel Hotels & Resorts are also adding their contemporary spin on the cities by install a hotel edifice in the heart of The Palm Jemirah, one of the three largest man made islands in the world.
Nevertheless, these large scale projects require large scale workforce, and investors and companies are seeking highly skilled and educated individuals such as Engineers, Architects, Construction Workers, down to the hospitality staff to reap the benefits of a rewarding salary and bask in the bright lights of the UAE. The never ending possibilities are becoming reality in the UAE, and the investors, government and companies are welcoming outsiders to have a piece of the profitable pie.
