Arabian Travel Market postponed amid coronavirus pandemic


The Arabian Travel Market (ATM) has been postponed until 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The event will now be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre on May 16-19, 2021.

"In light of the changing global situation relating to the COVID-19 virus, we have continued to monitor the impact it is having not just on our industry, but on society in general. Many meetings took place with the Dubai World Trade Centre and we reviewed other options to hold an event in the last quarter,” organisers Reed Travel Exhibitions said in a statement.

"However, ultimately it became apparent that the best course of action, and with everyone’s best interests in mind, is to postpone the event to 2021."

Organisers added that a virtual event will be held from June 1-3, featuring webinars, live conference sessions, speed networking events and meetings.

The event, which was initially scheduled to be held this month, was earlier postponed to June 28 to July 1.
