Arabian Travel Market 2013 – The Final Day

Jamie Bell

 Day 4 at ATM

Today may have been the final day of Arabian Travel Market 2013, but that didn’t mean things slowed down at all. The halls were busy and there was more invaluable content across the Google Technology Theatre and Seminar Theatre.

The Using Arabic Online session proved extremly popular and gave great insight into why travel companies should be thinking about using arabic on their websites, apps and digital activity.

Rising stars from the travel, hotel and hospitality sectors were on stage. Moderator Phil Blizzard talked to them about their achievements so far, ambitions for the future and predictions for the Middle East’s tourism industry over the next 10 years.

VIDEO - Rising star Elie Milky gave us a brief overview of his story after the session.

And the winners are…

The TTN & Arabian Travel Market Passport Competition 2013 came to a close this afternoon. Thirteen lucky Travel Agents who had completed and submitted their ATM passports won a range of fantastic prizes.

The competition has certainly been a big success and an engaging way for travel agents to learn more about exhibitors, their products and destinations.


Taking one last walk around the halls today was a reminder of just how important Arabian Travel Market is to the Middle East’s travel and tourism industry. Every type, size and nationality of travel organization exhibited here doing real business

VIDEO - Earlier we spoke to exhibitor @asianhotelier who explained how they have done 2.5 million dollars worth of business deals in 4 days at #ATMDubai

That’s it…
