(MENAFN Press) Amman, May 2014 - In celebration of laying the foundation stone and marking the commencement of the implementation phase of Porto Dead Sea, Amer Group - one of Egypt's leading development companies within the tourism and entertainment sectors with a legacy spanning over 25 years - held a gala dinner for more than 800 top VIPs, businessmen and media representatives. Launched under the slogan - Pulse of the Dead Sea - Porto Dead Sea is Amer Group's first project in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the largest of its kind in the region. As one of the biggest investments in the Kingdom, Porto Dead Sea is estimated of a total cost of JOD 60 million for the initial development phase only.

The gala dinner, which hosted riveting performances by popular Egyptian singer Tamer Hosni, was held at Four Seasons Amman Hotel, in the presence of Amer Group Vice Chairman Omar Amer, alongside a number of 800 invitees. During the event, Amer welcomed the guests and spoke about the positive trade and tourism relations between Egypt and Jordan. The event also featured two presentations, one of which showcased Amer Group's longstanding history in the development of large-scale touristic projects across Egypt and the region, whereby the other touched on the rationale behind the Company's decision to choose the Dead Sea as home to one of its largest projects to date.

"By organizing this gala dinner, we aimed to officially unveil Porto Dead Sea to Jordan's top investors and VIPs, and highlight the project's unique investment and developmental value as a first-of-its-kind, world class family tourism city located on the banks of the Dead Sea. In addition to pying an active role in the development of the area, the project is set to positively impact the national economy by supporting the tourism sector, increase Jordan's overall hotel capacity, attract regional and international investments, as well as create thousands of jobs for Jordanians. Porto Dead Sea will generate 6,000 sustainable job opportunities upon its operation, as well as thousands of additional opportunities throughout its construction phase," commented Amer. "We hope that this event has presented our guests with the chance to learn more about this project, which we are confident will revolutionize Jordan's tourism sector."

Scheduled to complete its first phase in 2016, Porto Dead Sea will offer an expansive suite of family tourism facilities spread across 800,000 sqm along the Dead Sea coast. These include thousands of hotel-serviced apartments, 20 global restaurants and cafs, mega malls, an international health and spa center, medical facilities, and an amusement park. Furthermore, the project will feature an equestrian and shooting club, different sports courts, 20 swimming pools - four of which are women-only - in addition to four lakes, the biggest dancing fountain in Jordan, and the first cinema complex in the Dead Sea. Porto Dead Sea will also introduce Amer Group's highly-acclaimed Papa Porto Carnivals to Jordan, offering family entertainment throughout the year.

Amer Group is one of Egypt's leading development companies operating within the tourism and entertainment sector for over 25 years. The Group owns and runs several large-scale touristic and residential Porto destinations across Egypt, the Middle East and Morocco.
