Show- stopper Stand at Arabian Travel Market Dubai
Laxmi Durai, Director Middle East, Royal Carreabean– is excited to share her comments on Show – stopper stand at Arabian Travel Market, | Dubai
The Arabian Travel Market is an exhibition which is conducted by Reed Exhibitions, which brings over 3000 exhibitors from around 87 countries. The event brings together hotels, car rental companies, limousine service providers, travel agents, tourist operators, regional attractions and much more. ATM would be a B2B Event, which makes businesses speak with other businesses around the world. Arabian Travel Market would be the right place to showcase the brand, get connected with partners in a similar industry, and meet travellers, agents across the globe and many such reasons.
Arabian Travel Market has played a significant role in the development of Dubai, underscoring its position as a highly attractive centre for exhibitions and events. Dubai has achieved so much at a pace that many other cities can only dream of … Dubai’s Strategic Plan builds on those achievements and highlights a number of areas, such as the economy, infrastructure and the environment.
ATM, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, said the growth of the event had mirrored that of the emirate, jumping from just 300 exhibitors in 1994 to more than 3,000 this year – during a period when Emirates’ passenger traffic rose from 1.9million to 40 million last year.
Investment & Development Authority concurred on the contribution of partnership
With all indicators flashing green for growth, panellists listed some of Dubai’s recent achievements, including a number one position for international passenger traffic achieved by Dubai International Airport in the first quarter; a growth of 54 per cent in Russian visitors and 28 per cent from China in 2012; an additional 30 aircraft and 15 new destinations for Emirates in the past year with a target of 180 by 2020, and, double-digit growth in visitor numbers to Dubai to reach 10 million for the first time last year.
