The first Global Halal Tourism Summit will held at Arabian Travel Market on April 26, 2017, the organiser Reed Travel Exhibitions confirmed adding that it will hold the Summit as part of its line-up of special focus events.
The ATM Global Halal Tourism Summit will feature three interactive seminar sessions covering the big picture, halal destination strategies and how to sell halal travel.
The event will be led by Muslim travel industry experts including Faeez Fadhlillah, co-founder of Salam Standard and Nabeel Shariff, founder of Serendipity Tailormade.
The summit announcement follows a special roundtable session about halal tourism, organised by Reed Travel Exhibitions, which took place earlier this year in Dubai.
A 2014 report by Thomson Reuters valued the global halal food and lifestyle sector at US$1.8 trillion and this is expected to reach US$2.6 trillion by 2020.
That figure was supported by research commissioned by the government of Dubai, and produced by Thomson Reuters in partnership with DinarStandard, which found that halal tourism represents 11.6 per cent of global tourism expenditure, estimating the sector would be worth US$238 billion by 2019.
