These include Lux* Al Jabal Resort – a luxurious beach resort in Khorfakkan overlooking the pristine waters of the Soueifa Beach; the Lux* Al Bridi Resort in Al Dhaid set adjacent to the Sharjah Safari, the largest wildlife safari in the world outside of Africa, where Shurooq and EPAA will collaborate to curate unique guest interactions with the wild; and Nomad which explores the emirate’s nature through beach trailer experience in Al Hamriya..

Through its presence at the leading travel and tourism event in the region, Shurooq aims to update industry stakeholders as well as regional and international investors on their latest contributions to the emirate’s travel and leisure sector, particularly through responsible and sustainable eco-tourism, beach tourism, and culture and heritage projects, as well as highlight the new and emerging business and investment prospects people can seek out in Sharjah’s diverse and business-friendly travel and leisure sectors.

Emphasising on the significance of showcasing Shurooq’s existing and future projects at the leading global event for the inbound and outbound travel industry in the Middle East, Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, Acting CEO of Shurooq, noted: “The tourism and travel sector is one of the key drivers of global economy, and it contributes significantly to UAE’s GDP.” “Shurooq is building new destinations for travellers and planning several other quality projects, which will be announced in the near future. ATM is a significant platform for us, and we look forward to reconnect and share our latest developments, discuss new investment opportunities with global industry partners as we highlight Sharjah’s ever-expanding travel and hospitality sector, particularly in the heritage, nature- and eco-inspired and sustainable travel segments,” he added.

The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority is currently leading a diversified portfolio of infrastructure projects, across Sharjah’s western, central and eastern regions.

Shurooq’s portfolio of projects reflects its mission to enhance long-term investment prospects offered by Sharjah to businesses, SMEs and startups across a wide range of sectors. Furthering this goal, the authority has been driving Sharjah’s Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) through joint ventures with key local and global brands. Through each of its focus sectors, Shurooq takes the responsibility of driving investments and creating new partnerships that effectively boost Sharjah’s economy and FDI growth, working closely in partnership with numerous local and federal entities contributing Sharjah and UAE’s economic standing and development.
