As one of the emirate’s most influential departments, Dubai Tourism’s stand in Hall 3 of the Dubai World Trade Centre will comprise more than 70 representatives from government bodies, hotels, destination management companies and tour operators.
Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Tourism said: “ATM will play a pivotal role in strengthening the industry in what continues to be one of the most challenging periods for global tourism. With Dubai being the host destination and as one of the longstanding official partners of the event, our participation together with a cross-section of industry representatives is fundamental to the global efforts underway in dealing with a rapidly evolving situation as well as to drive post-pandemic tourism growth.”
The department’s stand will allow visitors to learn about the emirate’s latest offerings, activities and initiatives, all of which come together to position Dubai one of the safest travel destinations in the world.
Dubai College of Tourism, an offshoot of the department, will be present to showcase its range of education offerings to the travel trade professionals. The College will showcase the courses such as Dubai Way, an online learning platform which offers a series practical courses in keeping with domestic demand and global travel trends. There will also be five full-time vocational programmes and scholarships accepting admissions in September 2021, including food and beverage service, front office and hospitality management.
“As we look forward to support ATM’s efforts to help rebuild the travel sector and facilitate business within our industry, we will also leverage this important platform to showcase the breadth of Dubai’s tourism proposition and innovative projects and initiatives while underlining that the health and safety of residents and visitors remains our top priority. We are committed to realising our tourism strategy of making Dubai the most visited and one of the most recommended travel destinations in the world,” added Kazim.
The 28th edition of Arabian Travel Market (ATM) is fast-approaching, taking place from Sunday, May 16 to Wednesday, May 19, with a follow-up ATM Virtual from Monday, May 24 to Wednesday, May 26.
