Making progress beyond imagination, oil driven Middle East is today a major hub of tourism. The landscape may not provide much variance, but modern attractions in the form of skyscrapers, gorgeous shopping malls, luxurious hotels and artificially created islands are among its highlights. In 2005 the Middle East was the second fastest tourism growing region after China. Abundant liquid cash from higher petroleum prices and prudent investment are likely to see the region’s tourism industry booming and hence the significance of such a conference.
