The travel and tourism industry welcomes the return of the Arabian Travel Market from May 16th to May 19th, 2021. It will be held at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre - Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai, UAE, guided by the latest and most extensive COVID-19 health and safety measures.
Arabian Travel Market – A Brief Introduction
Arabian Travel Market (ATM) opens the Middle East to the world of travel and vice versa as the premier international travel trade fair that focuses on B2B networking. Each edition of ATM takes place in Dubai, AUE and has a specific theme. In 2020, the event will operate under the motto of ‘Events for Tourism Growth’. Arabian Travel Market arrives at Dubai World Trade Centre on an annual basis in the latter half of April and generates great business. Last edition saw nearly 30,000 trade visitors come from all over the world and 2500 exhibiting companies from 150 countries.
An Industry Profile
Arabian Travel Market is by definition a cross-border procurement platform, where senior decision makers from the travel industry gather together to shape a big chunk of the industry on a global level. B2B networking is built into the DNA of the trade fair and the product portfolio is diverse. As an exhibitor, you can be involved in destination travel, cruises, accommodation or airline routes and you will find the right buyer in no small part thanks to the Buyers’ Club, whose membership is close to reach 7000 senior members with real purchasing power.

The 2021 edition of the fair was the first hybrid event in the history of the Arabian Travel Market. It consisted of a face-to-face exhibition and a complementary digital platform. Such changes were necessary because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The event took place between 16.05.2021 and 19.05.2021. The in-person section of the event had rigorous health protocols in place to ensure attendee safety. Despite the travel restriction in place, the edition received many visitors. More than 21,600 participants from 110 countries visited the face-to-face aspect of the event. There were also many visitors in the digital section of the fair. The platform has registered a total of 30,790 profiles. About 20,000 face-to-face virtual conferences were held. The conference program registered more than 6,600 visits. ATM 2021 was the first and largest face-to-face event in the tourism industry since the pandemic began. The rendition was deemed a great success and showed that the sector was ready to restart. The edition has also shown that the restart can be safely performed during a pandemic. This success allowed the organisers to set the date for the next edition of ATM: 8.05-11.05.2022. It will take place at the Dubai World Trade Center.
