Planning your next business meeting or conference on the Arabian Peninsula? Located between the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Oman and the Indian Ocean in the peninsula’s south-east is the Sultanate of Oman. Its capital Muscat, on the country’s north-eastern coast, provides ideal facilities for business events, MICE meetings, incentives and conferences. A legendary landscape of rugged rock formations, desert mountains, oasis with tall palm trees, and turquoise water awaits you in Oman. Immerse yourself in the fabled land of the Arabian Nights! With direct flights from central Europe, you can be in Muscat in 6-7 hours. Muscat International Airport is situated about 30 km from Old Muscat and has recently been elaborately extended.
Muscat is the country’s economic centre. Pipelines running from all over the hinterland pump crude oil to the port at the Mina Sultan Qaboos Waterfront; exports of the ‘black gold’ make up more than 50% of the national revenue. But you won’t find any mass tourism in Oman. The focus here is instead on customised tourism, comfort and exclusivity. Muscat wants to cut its dependence on crude oil, for its supplies are limited. The aim is to further develop the areas of infrastructure, investment and tourism in order to prepare for the ‘post-oil’ days.
