In the coming years, we are targeting an annual increase of 11%, with a target of 8.5 million guests by 2021.

“What we have achieved so far is very encouraging and we look forward to sustaining this momentum as we seek to enhance ties with key stakeholders across our top source markets including, the UK, Germany, India, China, United States and the GCC region.

In line with these ambitions, ATM constitutes a major focus in our annual promotion plan as it enables us to position Abu Dhabi as a global destination of distinction built on unique experiences and rich cultural heritage.”

At this leading travel trade show, emphasis will be placed on highlighting existing and new products among the Emirate’s expanding portfolio of attractions, experiences and event across the three areas of Abu Dhabi, Al Ain region and Al Dhafra region.
