Launched in 2021 to provide the Middle East with thought leadership, news, comments and analysis for the travel and hospitality industries.

Connecting Travel aims to bring together the global travel market with travel and hospitality professionals in the Middle East Region.

Focused on a readership which includes the chief executives of the region’s leading travel firms, senior hoteliers, frontline travel sellers and suppliers, Connecting Travel is a digital first product powered by a database of the key players in the Middle East tourism and hospitality markets.

Editorial content is focused on thought leadership pieces and interviews with the biggest names in the Middle East travel and hospitality industries, plus destination content, and updates on all the latest routes, openings, and activities taking place throughout the Middle East. Connecting Travel’s aim is to bring the quality of journalism to the Middle East with which other Jacobs Media Group brands have seen such success, and to become the must-read source of travel and hospitality content in the region.

The Connecting Travel website is available in both English and Arabic language sites, with all content available across both iterations. The weekly newsletters bring readers the top stories of the week for both the internal and external tourism markets in the Middle East, with bespoke in-market editorial written by the team based in Media City, Dubai, plus global news sourced from its UK sister titles.
