Qatar Tourism (QT) is preparing to lead a delegation of 30+ tourism partners to represent the destination at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM). The trade show, which will run from 9 to 12 May 2022 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, presents the ideal opportunity for Qatar to highlight the latest developments in its tourism industry and showcase its newest tourism and hospitality offerings.
Berthold Trenkel, Qatar Tourism COO, commented: “The global tourism sector is known for its resilience in the face of economic and political change, and we’ve already seen early signs of recovery from the events of the past few years. We look forward to reconnecting with our peers, forging new partnerships at the region’s largest travel market, and showcasing some of the innovative solutions we’ve pursued during this period.”
Qatar Tourism will be joined by 32 private and public sector partners to showcase the unique and new experiences the destination offers its visitors throughout all touchpoints of their journey. In Qatar’s double-decked pavilion covering 750 sqm, visitors can expect to meet representatives from the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy and destination management companies such as Discover Qatar. The award-winning national carrier, Qatar Airways, will also be present at the four-day event showcasing the destination’s connectivity and ease of access.
Visitors to the Qatar pavilion (Hall 1 - ME1210) will be invited to sample Qatar’s famed warmth and hospitality, all while learning about some of the newest additions to the country’s attractions and regulations that are set to boost the visitor’s experience. From new regulations that have paved the way for Holiday Homes, a programme through which local homeowners can list their vacant homes on popular vacation rental websites, to new multi-million-dollar projects that will bring much-loved attractions such as Winter Wonderland to Doha, and mixed-use luxury developments such as Place Vendôme.
Qatar Tourism’s strategy is to triple visitor numbers to 6 million by 2030, making Qatar the fastest growing destination in the Middle East for international visitors.
ATM is one of six annual business-to-business events held across four continents as part of the World Travel Market events. It facilitates $2.5 billion worth of travel industry deals and attracts thousands of exhibitors and travel trade visitors from around the world through its live and virtual events.
