Dubai, UAE: Kanoo Shipping, a member of The Kanoo Group was awarded with a trophy by Dubai Cruise Tourism (DCT), an entity of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) as recognition for its crucial role in Dubai’s emergence as one of the world’s most attractive cruise destinations for 2013-2013 held on 28th October 2013 at DTCM premises.
Picture from Left to Right: Mr. Shihabdin Gulabdin, Service Manager – UAE (Kanoo Shipping) receives appreciation award from Mr. Helal AlMarri (Director General - Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing), Mr. Hamad M Bin Mejren (Executive Director, Business Tourism) and Mr. Jamal Humaid Al Falasi (Director, Cruise Tourism)
The Appreciation Award was also presented to other partners and stakeholders like DP World, Dubai Immigration, Dubai Customs, Dubai Police, Dubai Maritime City Authority, Ports, Customs & Free Zone Corporation – Security Department (PCFC-SD), the Roads & Transport Authority, the Department of Environment Health and Safety, Dubai Culture and various cruise ship agencies such as Gulf Agency Co., Inchcape Shipping, Khimji Ramdass, Rais Hassan Saadi, Seamaster Maritime, and Wilhelmsen as well as  tour operators such as Arabian Adventures, Gulf Ventures, Orient Tours, Sharaf Tours, SNTTA, and Travco, who  all shared invaluable contributions to Dubai with the strongest cruise season ever.

Helal Saeed Almarri, Director-General of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), said: “The 2012-2013 cruise season reached new heights. We are proud to announce 93 confirmed ship calls this season, which include 63 home porting ship calls: 27 from Costa, 17 from Aida, and 19 from MSC ships. We’re also delighted to welcome seven maiden ship calls, a reflection of Dubai’s burgeoning appeal as a cruise hub.”

The burgeoning reputation of Dubai as an international hub for cruise tourism is set to be bolstered by an eventful 2013-2014 season, with more than 20 leading global cruise lines anticipated to bring in as many as 300,000 tourists to the Emirate, according to Dubai Cruise Tourism (DCT), an entity of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).

From tours of the Arabian Gulf – taking in the region’s most majestic cities – to longer voyages to the Far East, India and the Mediterranean, cruises from Dubai will continue to offer a diverse selection of destinations for holidaymakers seeking adventure and relaxation alike over the coming season. By selecting the Emirate as a home port, tourists will be able to take advantage of its spectacular attractions – from world-renowned skyscrapers and shopping malls to beaches and leisure venues – at both the beginning and end of their expedition.

Among the upcoming cruises with Dubai as its home port are Cruise Ship Costa Fortuna and Cost Neo Riviera travelling to two of Oman’s major cities, Muscat and Khasab, as well as Abu Dhabi. Others include the Aida Diva – which visits Muscat, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain – and the MSC Lirica – stopping at Abu Dhabi, Khor Fakkan, Muscat and Khasab.

A planned expansion, which will endow Dubai Cruise Terminals with an additional facility spanning over 27,000 square meters to cater to cruise lines and visitors from 2014, is currently underway. Consequently, Dubai Cruise Terminals will be able to comfortably handle complete passenger turnaround of five cruise ships simultaneously.

Dubai is currently the home port for five of the world’s leading cruise lines - Costa, Aida, Royal Caribbean, TUI and MSC. Three of these lines – Costa and MSC Cruises from Italy and Aida cruises from Germany – will be operating Gulf Cruise itineraries out of Dubai this season, representing a total deployment of four ships. TUI Cruises from Germany will resume their operations from the 2014/2015 season and the Emirate is looking forward to welcoming USA based Royal Caribbean again in the 2015/2016 season.

Correspondingly, Kanoo Shipping will be having the first port call for the season, MV Seven Seas Voyager on 2nd December and MV Nautica on 7th December 2013.

In an opening speech, Mr. Mishal Kanoo said that The Kanoo Group is privileged and honoured to be associated with DP World. He is optimistic that the partnership can help make DP World become more successful and that The Kanoo Group will be proud to be a part of it.

Mr. Esam Khoori also commented that the strategic partnership is a great advantage with mutual benefits which can bring right results, with the right people.

“I would like to thank Kanoo Machinery for their initiative, walking the extra mile with DP World in bringing this business relationship from customers’ to partners’ level. This consignment of spare parts wouldn’t come to reality if not for their efforts and in believing in DP World as a successful international company representing Dubai and the UAE,” said Mr. Jamal Ahmed Al Kindi.

Shakil Merchant, Divisional Sales Manager-UAE, Kanoo Machinery added, “Kanoo Machinery had been looking forward to this day and we have been working hard for a long time to achieve this. At last this deal has come true and is a good association of the business with the consignment stock keeping in DP World.”

As the organiser for the event, Praveen Hubli, Aftermarket Sales Manager-UAE, Kanoo Machinery further said, “The consignment stock concept discussed with DP World was very much appreciated and welcomed. DP World does not have to keep an inventory of spare parts for machines as this is done in Kanoo Machinery premises, and the required parts will be available 24/7. Therefore  efficiency and delivery time are greatly reduced, thus giving immense benefits to both parties.”

This undertaking is another mark of a long-term business commitment that The Kanoo Group shares with DP World. Most recently, Kanoo Machinery has also received the Top Vendor Award for the year 2012 by DP World, as a constant reminder of their good business relationships and dedication that brings business opportunities up to the next level.

One of the exhibition highlights was the added confidence placed on Perkins-powered gensets for both prime and standby applications by customers. This is because of the visibility and recognition given to authorized Perkins Distributor OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) through 'Certificate of Authenticity' that gives assurance to end-users in the genuineness of the Perkins engines they are buying. This also gives the OEM an assurance of product support to their end-users wherever their Perkins engines are operating.

This unique opportunity has encouraged many new genset assemblers to approach Power Systems Gulf to join hands for engine business cooperation. Power Systems Gulf engine sales package offers applications support, training, Extended Service Contracts, OEM Dealer agreements and more importantly, stability in the long term, to do business with a trusted Perkins partner upholding its values of honesty and integrity.

Another noticeable point during the exhibition was the absence of serious complaints on product support issues from territories. This is a testimony to the fact that the new regional business model implemented is improving the support levels for Perkins products in the region.
