UK Tourists in Sharm el Sheikh: We Love Egypt
British tourists on Sharm el Sheikh holidays will be joining leaders of the resort's tourism industry at the SOHO Square on Saturday 12th February 2011 to promote the Egyptian Red Sea resort in the "We Love Egypt" campaign.
Sharm el Sheikh tourism industry leaders will be gathering with British tourists on Saturday 12th February at SOHO Square to highlight the Red Sea resort as a destination for Sharm el Sheik holidays as part of the "We Love Egypt" campaign.
The pedestrianised square mile of shops, entertainment centres, and restaurants will be the setting for this event which was created after a group of British visitors approached tour operators and Sharm el Sheikh hotels with the idea.
Spokesman for the organisers, Khaled Saleh, explained: "A group of visitors asked if they could show their appreciation for the hospitality they've received while on holiday and also to show that Sharm El Sheikh is operating normally and lives up to its reputation as The City of Peace."
British travellers on Egypt holidays and leaders in the tourism industry will gather at the square next to Hotel Savoy Sharm at 10pm on the Saturday evening to support the thousands of travellers who are continuing with their Sharm el Sheikh holidays despite the conflict in other parts of Egypt, and the programme will also commemorate the victims of unrest across the country.
The programme of events will include musical tributes, a video presentation highlighting the culture of Egypt, speeches from diplomats and leading hoteliers in the Red Sea resort, and a folklore display.
T-shirts with the logo, "We Love Egypt" will be handed out to visitors with free drinks and food, and prizes which will be donated by Sharm el Sheikh businesses and tour operators. The event's logo will feature both the British and Egyptian national flags.
The event is expected to be attended by the UK's Honorary Consul in Sharm El Sheikh, Ms. Dawn Bacon, and a high representative of the Egypt's government.
The protests and demonstrations are continuing across major cities across Egypt as Egyptians urge President Hosni Mubarak to step down.
Following Mubarak's announcement on Thursday that he will not step down until September, he has left his residence in Cairo and is now reportedly living at his residence in Sharm El Sheikh.
