Arabian Travel Market (ATM)

, a 4-day eclectic tourism event, opened on Monday, 9th May at the Dubai World Trade Center. The 29th edition of the Middle East’s largest tourism exhibition is launched on a colossal scale – 85% larger than ATM 2021. The inauguration happened in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, who was accompanied by His Excellency Helal Saeed Almarri, Vasyl Zhygalo, Danielle Curtis and other famous names.

After the world stood still for two years due to Covid-19, ATM 2022 is the harbinger of travel rebounding at a faster pace. The event reiterates the importance of travel, broadening the global market and introducing path-breaking ideas. It features 1500 exhibitors from over a hundred global destinations. Countries from Jamaica to Italy are looking forward to reviving their footfalls. The event is all set up to welcome an anticipated 20,000 attendees.

ATM is a one-stop platform for all travel leaders and big industrial giants in the Middle East and across the world to come together and discuss the future including technology and sustainability.


The theme for this year is ‘The future of international travel and tourism’, and what better place could be other than Dubai to celebrate it. Dubai remains at the forefront of global travel recovery as it continued providing a safe environment during such critical health crisis times.  Facing all the repercussions in the past two years, it stands as a manifestation of sustainable development.

The event will keep you on your toes as it is pumped up to host an incredible array of exciting sessions where they will unveil breathtaking technology, start-up pitches, mind-blowing strategies, exciting attractions and innovative travel trends.


It will also conduct the sensational ATM Draper-Aladdin Start-up Competition where 15 innovators from travel, tourism and hospitality, will pitch for a whopping $500,000 funding – and a further US$500,000 of investment.

ATM Virtual will run from May 17-18. Other highlights include ATM Global Stage and ATM Travel Tech Stage which will organize 40 conference sessions comprising 150 speakers.

ATM 2022 is a vital part of Arabian Travel Week, a 10-day mega festival. If you are attending the event in-person, don’t forget to use the hashtags #ImGoingtoATM and #ATMDubai.
