ATM 2019 was organised at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), over four days, wherein the annual business-to-business (B2B) exhibition showcased over 2,800 products and destinations from around the world to over 28,000 buyers and travel trade visitors. The event enabled the participants to network and develop new connections with their international peers as well as discover the latest trends pertaining to the industry, products and technologies from around the world.
Representing Tamarind Global, the following attendees graced the event: Mahesh Shirodkar – MD; Louis D’Souza – Director; Prabhakar Kamat – General Manager; Sales, Bosco Rodrigues- Business Development Manager; Eljoe Mathew – Business Development Manager; Dubai and Aliasgar Dahodwala- Senior Consultant, Tours.
Louis D’Souza Director of Tamarind Global, Event and Destination Management Company said, “A team of 6 staff and management from Tamarind Global participated in this year’s ATM. While Day 1 was slow as expected, the pace picked up rapidly on Day 2 and Day 3. Apart from meeting our regular partners from all over the GCC and beyond, we were able to establish relationships with many new outbound tour operators. This year our new products focussed on spa and wellness as well as the cruise segment. We have seen a decline in buyer attendance at the show, but an improvement in the quality of buyers over the years. This has helped us to have more meaningful meetings and create new partnerships. Now in its 26th year, we see the ATM as a great way of connecting with the best in the travel business.”
