The 25th Edition of ATM opened its doors on Sunday 22 April, 2018 “welcomed more than 40,000 people and over 2,500 exhibiting companies, signing business deals worth more than $2.5 billion over the course of the 4-day event.
The annual business-to-business (B2B) exhibition showcases over 2,800 products and destinations from around the world to over 28,000 buyers and travel trade visitors across four days at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC).”
With this year’s theme: Responsible Tourism, including sustainable travel trends, Simon Press, senior exhibition director, ATM, said: “It is important to highlight that the GCC is one of the fastest growing regional hospitality markets on a global scale and is a resource intensive industry. Its impact on the environment is multi-dimensional, ranging from CO2 emissions, water and energy demand, food waste, and noise and light pollution”.
“GCC capital investments in tourism infrastructure are expected to reach US$56 billion by 2022, with the UAE ranked the most competitive in the region, driven by the development of multiple revolutionary transport projects, according to the latest research published ahead of Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2018.”
