From robot jockeys to the world’s busiest international airport, here are some remarkable facts about Dubai, host city of the The Annual Meeting of the Global Future Councils on 13-14 November. 90% of the population is non-Emirati Data from the Government of Dubai suggests that more than 90% of the population in 2015 was from outside the Emirates.

What will travel look like in 2030? The travel and tourism industry has grown dramatically in the past decades, reaching nearly 1.2 billion international arrivals in 2015, compared to 25 million in 1950. That’s a growth of 4,700% – and this number is only expected to get bigger, reaching 1.8 billion international arrivals by 2030.

You might be surprised, but it’s one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world. While historically, travel was a luxury only offered to those wealthy enough to afford it, the lowering of travel barriers and falling real travel costs have led to the flourishing of the travel and tourism industry. These factors, combined with the growth of disposal income, the growth of the middle class in many growth markets, and changing attitudes of people towards travel, have enabled the surge of international travel.

Most visited museum in each European country. Which countries get the most tourists? International tourist arrivals hit a record 1.1 billion worldwide in 2014, up from 1 billion the year before.

It is the fifth consecutive year in which numbers have shown growth above the long-term average. Europe saw the biggest rise in absolute numbers but the Americas and Asia also showed significant growth. France was the most visited country with over 83 million inbound tourists. That figure was nearly 10 million ahead of the next country on the list, the United States. Image: UNWTO Tourism Highlights, 2015 While France’s visitor numbers remained stable, the United States and Spain, number three on the list, attracted more than four million more tourists than the year before. China attracted 55 million visitors, most of which were from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. The other countries in the top 10 showed steady growth in numbers except Mexico which jumped from 24 million to over 29 million in 12 months.

The United States is way ahead at number one with $177 billion. Share Written by.
