Middle East is growing and developing rapidly and so is the aviation, travel and tourism to and from the region. Recently, Dubai International Airport is now the world’s second busiest airport for international passenger traffic. Which not only reflects the importance of the Middle East as a destination for business & tourism but also highlights the geographic advantage that the region enjoys in connecting the East with the West and vice versa. So it is only fitting that we had a travel event which focuses on the region.
This is how the Arabian Travel Market came into being, which also in the travel industry is commonly known as ATM. It goes without saying that ATM is a vital and crucial Travel Trade event for the Middle East which attracts the who’s who of the industry along with the people who work in the travel industry and also non-industry people alike. Basically, all levels of the value added chain are present: from tour operators, booking engines, destinations, airlines, and hotels right through to car rental companies.
Arabian Travel Market is the travel and tourism event unlocking business potential within the Middle East for inbound and outbound tourism professionals. The 2013 show will run from May 6 – 9 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC). Arabian Travel Market offers business alternatives for travel agents as well as the best offers for the most indulgent luxury travelers of all around the world who want to enjoy all what the still little know middle east offers.
Along the usual luxury travel events and exhibitions, the Arabian Travel Market offers seminars covering a variety of topics related to the leisure industry from a technological point of view such as state of the art yachts and private jets, new develops in amenities and entertainment and communication technologies for a total control of business affairs from the holidays location. Tourism destinations from the Middle East and around the world also assemble at ATM to showcase a range of accommodation options, tourism attractions and potential new airline routes.
