Dubai: With the highly-anticipated Expo 2020 Dubai just around the corner, Dubai Police have stepped up efforts in organising awareness events for hotel employees in preparation for receiving large number of visitors during the event that will be held over six months, from October 2021 to April 2022.
Dubai Tourist Police recently organised an awareness lecture for the employees of Waldorf Astoria Dubai Hotel in Palm Jumeirah. Police personnel offered tips and instructions to be followed when welcoming tourists and visitors. The lecture also tackled the role of tourist police during Expo 2020 Dubai and the importance of adhering to local laws.
