Launch of Zagat Dubai City Guide
On December 10, 2012 Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing in conjunction with Zagat guides hosted an event at the Jimmy at the James Hotel in SoHo to launch the new Zagat Dubai City Guide. In attendance were Mr. and Mrs. Tim and Nina Zagat and Mr. Hamad Mohammed Bin Mejren, Executive Director of Business Tourism, who spoke on behalf of the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing. The new City Guide includes Dubai’s most popular categories in dining, nightlife, shopping, sights and attractions. 5,751 individuals were surveyed on their preference of 484 restaurants, 71 nightspots, 527 shops and 37 sights and attractions. The rankings assigned in all of Zagat’s publications are based on public opinion surveys which reflect average scores given to each establishment by the survey participants. The new guide is available for purchase on Zagat’s website. Zagat Guides are available to members of the media upon request.
