Attending the Arabian Travel Market 2017

The Arabian Travel Market is approaching and I’m excited to attend and visit various exhibits from hotels, travel agencies, companies, official tourism boards from other countries, etc.

This is a four-day event which showcases leading travel industry trends as well various exhibits from different countries. There will be over 2600 exhibitors, 65 national pavilions, and over 35 seminar and technology theatre sessions.

I was able to visit the ATM 2015 and ATM 2016 events. Last year, I took part in the Blogger Speed Networking session where I met people from hotels, agencies and media to see how we could partner up and collaborate in future trips. This time, I’m going to join as one of the blogger participants again.

As a travel blogger in Dubai, this is a great opportunity for me to get acquainted with the tourism industry. I feature adventures, attractions, food, culture, events, etc. in Dubai and beyond so this exhibition is definitely right up my alley.

Venue: Dubai World Trade Centre
Dates: 24-27 April 2017

Here are some random pictures from last year’s event.
