Hospitality professionals from every corner of the world will gather in Dubai today (Sunday, 28 April) for the opening of Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2019, the largest travel industry exhibition in the Middle East. Arabian Travel Market has to offer many valuable insights and identifying the top tourism trends showing the greatest growth potential is one very important thing. ATM 2019 is to be held at Dubai World Trade Centre and will feature the launching of Arabian Travel Week.
Building on the success of last year’s event, ATM 2019 will welcome over 2,500 exhibiting companies and an expected 40,000 attendees, with over 150 countries represented, 65 national pavilions, and more than 100 new exhibitors set to make their ATM debut including Expo 2020 Dubai, Flynas, Belarus National Tourism Agency, Moscow Committee for Tourism and Montenegro National Tourism Organization, South Africa Tourism Bureau and Zimbabwe Tourism Authority.
According to eTurbo News, Danielle Curtis, Exhibition Director ME, Arabian Travel Market, said: “The introduction of two new events for 2019, as well as the creation of the Arabian Travel Week umbrella brand, was made possible due to the past success of ATM and ILTM Arabia. The debut ATM Holiday Shopper provides an exclusive consumer element, while CONNECT MEIA will provide a brand-new route development forum for our industry.”
Continuing till Wednesday 1st May, ATM 2019 has adopted cutting-edge technology and innovation as its main theme, and this will be integrated across all show verticals and activities.
