Saudi, China & travel tech trends dictate ATM 2019

Published on : Wednesday, June 12, 2019

The Arabian Travel Market 2019 experienced a 106% growth in Chinese visitors and a 20% rise in overseas visitors to the event, which was organized at Dubai World Trade Centre from 28 April – 1 May 2019.

 

ATM has grown, turning out to be the largest event of its kind in the region and world’s one of the biggest, in terms of visitor numbers breaking through the 28,000 mark for the third year in sequence.

 

The event for this year displayed the largest ever exhibition from Asia, experiencing an 8% YoY growth in total floor space, with Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Sri Lanka being the largest exhibitors.

 

To quote Danielle Curtis, Exhibition Director ME, Arabian Travel Market, “The continued growth of ATM is testament to the continued strength of the travel and tourism industry in the Middle East.”

 

“It not only brings together travel and tourism professionals from around the globe to discuss the potential of the regional outbound market, where GCC tourists spend over six times the global average.”

 

“In addition, it draws major inbound players, eager to capitalize on the huge amount of investment that is being put into the region’s tourism infrastructure, including its airlines, resorts, attractions and facilities.”

The 2019 edition, which placed limelight on advanced technology and innovation, bragged over 400 main stand holders with over 100 new exhibitors making their debut. The number of countries represented at ATM 2019 was around 150.

 

Recognizing the top tourism trends highlighting the major growth possibility is one of the most expensive insights ATM has to offer, and this year’s event was no different as it launched Arabian Travel Week – an umbrella brand comprising four co-located shows.
