Travel and tourism industry players may look forward to the Arabian Travel Market 2021, which is set for May 16th to May 19th at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre - Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai, UAE. Organisers have emphasized the presence of COVID-19 prevention protocols at the venue. 


In the Middle East, there’s one trade show dedicated to the travel sector you need to be paying any attention to and that’s Arabian Travel Market. Inbound and outbound tourism professionals are all gathering in high numbers to immerse themselves in the trends and innovations in the industry as ATM (abbreviated) is where you can gain a deep profile of how the industry will look like in the next five years.

The first ever edition was held back in 1994 and in that time the trade show has risen as a juggernaut for the region as an unparalleled B2B networking event, where all kinds of travel are on the table. The portfolio extends to everything from bus travel and cruises to spa trips, group travel, language travel and luxury destinations.


The Arabian Travel Market calls Dubai its home and arrives every year in late April. Editions are held at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre - Dubai World Trade Centre and run the course of four days. The official organiser of the event is Reed Exhibitions, but enjoys very generous support and sponsorship from the Government of Dubai. In particular, the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing.

This B2B event is available only to professional and doors are open from 12:00 pm at noon until 18:00 pm in the afternoon on the first day. The next three days start two hours earlier at 10:00 am and the fourth day ends one hour earlier at 17:00 pm.

The Dubai World Trade Centre is serviced by Dubai’s extensive metro system, which makes it easy to reach the exhibition grounds, if you don’t rent a car or use taxis. Another reliable way to commute is to catch one of the many buses.
