OYO Hotels & Homes UAE is expecting to see a 25 percent increase in business travel from India in the first quarter of the year.

According to a release from the holiday home outfit, January already saw an 18 percent increase in business travellers from India, which has largely been attributed to the busy exhibitions and conferences industry in the UAE.

India was one of the six top source markets with close to two million travellers visiting Dubai. This further reinforces the fact Dubai is growing as a must-visit destination for Indian tourists,” mentioned Pranav Mehta, country head, OYO Hotels & Homes, UAE.

OYO currently manages over 15,000 rooms across the UAE and has served close to 200,000 guests from more than 80 countries.
