Arab Travel Market gets a hybrid makeover this year


Over 70 representatives from government bodies, hotels, destination management companies and tour operators will join Dubai Tourism at this year’s edition of the Arabian Travel Market (ATM).

This year’s event will feature industry discussions under the theme, ‘A new dawn for travel’.

ATM will be taking place for the very first time as a hybrid event from May 16 to 19 at the Dubai World Trade Centre and virtually from May 23 to 25.

Meanwhile, Dubai Tourism will ensure that the destination remains in the global spotlight with unique events, projects and initiatives designed to further accelerate tourism momentum in the emirate.

Issam Kazim, CEO, Dubai Tourism said: "ATM will play a pivotal role in strengthening the industry in what continues to be one of the most challenging periods for global tourism. With Dubai being the host destination and as one of the longstanding official partners of the event, our participation together with a cross-section of industry representatives is fundamental to the global efforts underway in dealing with a rapidly evolving situation as well as to drive post-pandemic tourism growth.

"As we look forward to support ATM’s efforts to help rebuild the travel sector and facilitate business within our industry, we will also leverage this important platform to showcase the breadth of Dubai’s tourism proposition and innovative projects and initiatives while underlining that the health and safety of residents and visitors remains our top priority.

"We are committed to realising our tourism strategy of making Dubai the most visited and one of the most recommended travel destinations in the world.”

Visitors to the Dubai Tourism stand will have the opportunity to learn about a diverse array of offerings, activities and initiatives from its key departments.

Participants alongside Dubai Tourism at the Dubai stand in Hall 3 include Dubai Police, Dubai Health Authority, General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs - Dubai (GDRFA–Dubai) and Dubai Municipality.
