Danielle Curtis, Exhibition Director ME, Arabian Travel Market, stated that innovation is a crucial component of the event’s theme, ‘Working Towards Net Zero’.

One of the innovation-centric discussions at the ATM Travel Tech Stage will be the ‘Technology: The Enabler of Sustainable Travel’ session, where industry experts will discuss how online tools are making it easier for consumers to reduce their environmental impact when purchasing and planning trips.

The Arabian Travel Market 2023 is set to feature over 20 innovation-focused sessions and events during the four-day event, including the Tech Stage, which will provide the backdrop for a selection of panels discussing the main trends impacting travel in 2023 and beyond. The session, in partnership with Sabre, will explore how the travel industry has harnessed innovation in response to the global pandemic and how technology is likely to drive further advancements in the future.

The 30th edition of Arabian Travel Market will explore the future of sustainable travel in line with its theme, “Working Towards Net Zero.”

The conference programme will explore how innovative sustainable travel trends will evolve and allow delegates to identify growth strategies within key vertical sectors. Regional experts will also explore a sustainable future ahead of COP28 in November at Expo City Dubai.

The conference will also feature a sustainability category at its annual exhibitor awards for the first time, recognising exhibitors based on the extent to which they have considered the environmental impact of their stands and their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint.

The event is held in conjunction with Dubai World Trade Centre and its strategic partners, including Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) as the destination partner, Emirates as the official airline partner, IHG Hotels & Resorts as the official hotel partner, and Al Rais Travel as the official DMC partner.
