Something of a hidden gem, Rooster will promote Ras Al Khaimah’s rich cultural heritage and unique mountain, coast (64 kms of unspoilt beaches), mangrove, and desert landscapes.
Haitham Mattar, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, comments: “We were very impressed by Rooster’s travel expertise and creative thinking, and look forward to attracting even more visitors and investment to our magical part of the world.”
James Brooke, Managing Director at Rooster PR, said: “The team got off to a flying start supporting the launch of the Jebel Jais Flight zipline and are excited to help the RAKTDA team propel Ras Al Khaimah into the major league of global adventure tourism destinations with our creative executions and best-in-class travel PR.”
As well as the adventure and activity products offered throughout the Hajar mountain range, Ras Al Khaimah offers over 7,000 years of history and is home to ancient archaeological sites such as the Dhayra Fort and the ancient village of Al Jazira Al Hamra, as well as 64 kilometres of pristine beaches and world class hotels.
In April 2018 the Emirate will play host to AHIC, the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference, for the first time, showcasing Ras Al Khaimah’s MICE offering and growing status within the region. This follows a number of major tourism events that were held in Ras Al Khaimah in 2017, including the 67th Annual Convention of the German Travel Association (DRV) in December.
