Arabian Travel Market 2003 expected to be biggest show to date
Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE), which organizes Arabian Travel Market, the Middle East’s travel and tourism show, expects this year’s event is “well on track to be the biggest show to date.”
With three months to go before the 2003 Arabian Travel Market, now in its 10th year, which will be held at the Airport Expo, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) from May 6-9, the show is already five percent square meters larger than last year’s record-breaking event, according to a company press release.
Much of this space growth is taken by tourism boards, which are increasing the size of their stands to meet demand from the private sector, according to a company press release. A number of fresh exhibitors are welcomed to the show with new national pavilions from Saudi Arabia and Canada and the return of a Ugandan national pavilion after a break of seven years.
To date, exhibitors from 47 countries have registered for Arabian Travel Market 2003, including destinations, tour operators, hotel groups, national tourist boards, travel technology providers, airlines, industry associations, yachting and cruise operators and tourism consultants. — (menareport.com)
