ATM to Unlock Tourism Potential of Saudi, India, Russia and China

Arabian Travel Market 2020 (ATM) has launched a new series of buyer forums and networking events focused on India, Saudi Arabia, China and Russia’s growing outbound potential, as GCC travel and tourism companies and destinations look to attract a larger share from these major source markets.

Following the successful launch of the ‘Arabia China Tourism Forum’ at ATM 2019, these new forums and networking events have been designed to explore the untapped opportunities that India, Saudi Arabia, China and Russia’s expanding tourism markets present while advising travel, tourism and hospitality professionals, on how to attract and cater to these key markets.

As part of the networking sessions, ATM will be inviting 150 hosted buyers from India, China, Russia and the Middle East as well as partnering with CBN Travel & MICE once again to bring an additional 84 new buyers from China.

Taking a look at the key drivers, beside Expo 2020 which is now less than one year away, Indian, Saudi Arabian, Chinese and Russian visitors have grown in recent years due to the introduction of additional and direct airline routes; relaxed visa regulations; the growth of their respective economies; increased disposable incomes and a new generation of leisure attractions and retail destinations as well as a broad range of hotels and resorts across the region.
