The 17th edition of the ATM will take place from May 4-7 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event will include business networking, careers and travel agents and consumer day.

Emirates Palace, the largest Abu Dhabi hotel, will also roll out its package of special offers to clients and visitors at the gathering from travel and tourism agents and operators from the Middle East, the Gulf and the world at large. Emirates Palace will have an ideal stand at the pavilion of the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) which along with 77 of its industry stakeholders will jointly mount their largest pavilion.

The Abu Dhabi pavilion will take up 1,400 square metres and will be the largest of any stand at the Arabian Travel Market. It will include new-to-market exhibitors including soon-to-open hotels, new travel and tourism operators and city centre resorts.

Janet Abrahams, Executive Director of Sales and Marketing at Emirates Palace, told Gulf News that she was optimistic about an active season throughout this summer and into next year.

“At ATM, our team will promote upcoming summer holidays specifically designed to attract more holidaymakers from the GCC, European and Asian countries to Abu Dhabi. We will be networking with our key travel and tourism partners to conclude contracts for enhancing our new vibrant markets in China, Japan, Latin America and Norway to attract elite groups of new tourists to Abu Dhabi,” she said.

She disclosed that Emirates Palace has struck contracts with travel and tourism agencies and operators in a number of European, American and Asian countries for 2011 and 2012 and was confident of a continued growth in demand for Emirates Palace and Abu Dhabi.

Arabian Travel Market 2009 welcomed over 17,237 participants. At the exhibition, 85 per cent of the visitors came from Middle East and Northern Africa, 5 per cent from Asia and the rest from the Americas and from other African countries.
