ATM Dubai to take place this year along with ATM Holiday Shopper

Wednesday, January 23, 2019


Reed Travel Exhibitions, organizer of the annual Arabian Travel Market (ATM) showcase in Dubai, which is scheduled to take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre on April 28 – May 1 this year has announced that it will host its first consumer day – ATM Holiday Shopper, as part of its arrangement of special focus events.


To take place on April 27 – the day before the official opening of ATM – the event will display over 30 travel and hospitality exhibitors from both regional and international destinations who will be putting forward a wide range of attractive travel and tourism discounts and deals for consumers who will attend the show.


To quote Danielle Curtis, Exhibition Director ME, Arabian Travel Market, “In direct response to industry feedback and consumer demand, we are proud to introduce a new and exclusive consumer event to ATM 2019. Whether simply looking for a deal on the Eid break or planning a long-haul getaway, ATM Holiday Shopper is designed to offer the very best discounts and deals. Talking to the experts face to face will also allow attendees to learn about a range of emerging and unexplored destinations and activities from destinations around the world.”


Now travellers do not wish to be part of the crowd. They crave for new destinations offering unique experiences, personalized according their tastes and expectations. A study by digital payment firm Visa revealed that residents in the UAE are among the world’s top spenders while traveling abroad, with an average spending of around $2,722 (AED10,000) during their last international trip.


Research from Visa revealed that residents from Saudi Arabia were on top with a predicted average spending of $4,800 (AED 17,600) on their next trip. Kuwait also featured among the top spenders, with a projected average spending of $3,474 (AED 12,760), while travellers from the UAE plan to spend $3,430 (AED 12,600), which is more than the global median which is estimated at $2,443 (AED 8,975).


While international travel being a key focus, ATM Holiday Shopper will also offer a range of discounts and deals from within the UAE and of course the wider GCC region – with a number of hotels, leisure and cultural activities, spas and F&B outlets within Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the Northern Emirates as well as Oman and Saudi Arabia scheduled to exhibit.
