have you noticed the news content lately in dubai newspapers and magazines. there seemed to be a growing trend of pr grandstanding obviously by pr agencies. what bothers me is the way the obvious news have become non-reflective of the real scenario happening in town. take the case of topics such as DSS hotel occupancies this summer. You read out that so & so are havig almost 100% occupancy despite heat situations....people are flocking to dubai etc..etc.. due to the exciting DSS activities..etc. etc...But is this the real case? i asked around and spoke to some travel agent friends of mine telling us how they've been bugged by almost every hoteliers in town clamoring for increased guest bookings to meet the periods biz quotas. How pathetic can some pr agencies drum up news grandstanding. Isn't it time we turn ourselves and see the real picture. You are just making fool of readers/customers by grandstanding your news articles only for travelers to end up bemused by what is actually out there.
