Oman Visitors Portal, which currently achieves a large number of daily hits, is a valuable source of information for potential visitors and a one-stop-resource for those looking to discover more about the Sultanate of Oman. Oman has a lot to offer to the Italian travellers, whether they be from the leisure or business travel sectors. With Oman Air connectivity between the two destinations, there is a particular potential of many Italians using Oman to transit further afield.
The new Italian version is more aesthetically pleasing for viewers, as well as more user-friendly. The www.omanvisitors.com website, published in three languages, attracts many visitors, offering comprehensive and invaluable information to its visitors.
Paola Amadei, Ambassador of Italy to Oman has commended the growing relations between the two countries in all fields, particularly in the tourism, trade and investment areas. She said, "I have accepted with great pleasure the invitation to participate in the launch of the Italian language version of the website of Oman Visitor. The objective of the portal is to promote tourism in this beautiful country, extraordinarily rich in history, cultural heritage and beautiful landscape. I am sure that the translation of the content of the website into the Italian language will contribute to further promote in Italy the tourism in Oman.
"The number of Italian tourists is increasing as well as the number of Omani tourists in Italy. I am sure that an increasing number of people might take advantage of this useful information".
"We are very excited about the launch of the Italian version for Oman Visitors website. We have been working to increase our connection with both our current fan base and our potential consumers. By making the website easier to navigate, we hope visitors will engage more with the comprehensive resources on Oman.
"Soon, we will also be launching other sites that will target various niche markets. By focusing on these specialised interests, we hope to demonstrate how relevant Oman is to these niches, and thus further foster tourism to Oman," said Bader Mohd Al Azri, the team leader for Oman Visitors Portal.
