Dubai Tourism has announced the launch of “Dubai Expert”, an online educational game that has been created exclusively for travel agents. Created in collaboration with the Dubai College of Tourism and KTM Advance, a specialist in e-learning, the learning tool is a departure from traditional training programmes. It features an engaging interface that includes information on Dubai’s tourism attractions in an easily-digestible format, that will enable agents to promote the Emirate as the ideal holiday destination to their customers from around the world.

‘Dubai Expert’ operates as a turn-based card game, where participants will need to select the best cards – each with an attraction in the city – from an automatically generated deck, to create an ideal itinerary for a traveller. Various traveller profiles make up the 30 ‘missions’ of the game, with the best combination of activities earning higher scores. The platform also includes 25 videos from experts, that serve as a guide of what to do in Dubai – including family entertainment, gastronomy, shopping, theme parks, culture and heritage amongst others.
