In light of the changing global situation relating to the COVID-19 virus, ATM had continued to monitor the impact it is having not just on our industry, but on society in general. Many meetings took place with the Dubai World Trade Centre and ATM reviewed other options to organize an event in the last quarter. However, after consultation with our key stakeholders and after listening to the Industry, ultimately it became apparent that the best course of action, and with everyone’s best interests in mind, is to postpone the event to 2021.
Therefore, Arabian Travel Market will now be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre on 16-19 May 2021, following the holy month of Ramadan and the Eid Al Fitr celebrations.
Decisions like this are never taken lightly, says ATM. Their Discussions took place at the highest level both internally and externally with local and federal government, partners, sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees who all endorsed our evaluation of the current situation and our decision to act once again, without delay.
ATM appreciates that this is disappointing news, however everyone’s health and safety is their top priority. They also mention to be fully aware of the important role that ATM plays for industry professionals right across the Middle East region and beyond, and believe it is their responsibility to deliver a safe and successful event when it is able to do so.
The live show will be rescheduled to 2021, but until then they want to keep us connected. ATM will firmly focus on delivering positive business and networking opportunities to the Middle East’s vast travel and tourism community and as such ATM was excited to announce that they will be running an ATM Virtual Event from 1-3 June 2020.  Join webinars, live conference sessions, speed networking events, 1-2-1 meetings, plus so much more keeping the conversations going and delivering new connections and business opportunities online.  

EVINTRA has been Media and Hosted Buyer Program Partner to this important industry event and will of course support them in this future planned activities.
