Arabian Travel market underlines resilience of tourism industry
The 10th anniversary of Arabian Travel Market, the Middle East's premier travel and tourism exhibition, which begins a four-day run at Airport Expo Dubai, has highlighted the resilience of the tourism industry in the aftermath of war and in the face of the SARS threat.
“Despite the tremendous challenges of the past few months, this Arabian Travel Market 2003 is almost 10 percent larger in terms of contracted exhibition space than last year,” said Chairman of Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE), Tom Nutley, which organizes the annual event.
Arabian Travel Market 2003 will feature 783 exhibitors from 55 countries taking up in total 9,000 square meters. The free-to-attend seminars will be held at Airport Expo Dubai on May 7 and 8. The Arabian Travel Market 2003 seminar program is being sponsored by the trade magazine Travel and Tourism News and the online service TradeArabia. — (menareport.com)
