The Arabian Travel Market, the region’s leading international travel and tourism event, is all set to raise its curtains on Sunday, bringing together over 2,800 exhibitors from across the world. The event promises to further raise Dubai’s profile as an industry hub by showcasing new developments, destinations, offers and technologies and providing a platform for companies to network and do business. 

Dubai’s own offerings in the travel and tourism sector will be one of the cynosures of attention at the event to be held from 28 April to 1 May. In 2018, Dubai overcame the impact of global economic headwinds, to emerge as a growth hotspot in the worldwide tourism map. According to a report by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, the emirate welcomed 15.92 million visitors in 2018, an increase of 0.8 per cent from a year earlier. Dubai was ranked the world’s fourth most visited city for the fourth year in a row by the Mastercard Global Destination Cities Index (GDCI) 2018 and topped the list of global cities with the highest international overnight visitor spend for the third year in a row. 



Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), said: "Our presence at Arabian Travel Market forms a core part of our efforts to raise awareness of Dubai as a diverse travel destination to global audiences, and we are pleased to extend our support once again to the 26th edition of this influential event. We remain focused on strengthening collaborations with our network of industry partners, in turn underlining the enormous diversity that the emirate offers global travellers." 



"Keeping in mind this year’s theme of innovation and technology, Dubai as a destination has already embraced a ‘digital, mobile and social first’ agenda that places future readiness at its core while promoting the adoption of disruptive technology. As a global hub of innovation, we will continue to support public-private sector partnerships to evolve our product offering and the way we engage with today’s digitally-savvy consumers. Keeping ahead of the global competition, we are anchored by an unwavering vision of establishing Dubai as the number one most-visited and innovative city in the world," he added. 



Dubai’s ability to sustain its tourism growth over the past few years has been driven, among others, by a sustained investment in infrastructure. In the next half a decade, it is set to complete the construction of a series of mega projects that will features some of the world’s most spectacular tourist attractions.
