Buyers at ATM

ATM Buyers' Club

The ATM’s Buyers’ Club provides a forum for senior travel industry decision makers with direct purchasing responsibility including tour operators, travel agents, wholesalers and private travel arrangers.  The club facilitates networking, providing the opportunity to meet, greet and discuss business, leading to contracts being signed whilst expanding business connections.

Are you a travel trade buyer? If yes, attending Arabian Travel Market as a member of the ATM Buyers' Club is an exclusive and very effective way to source and grow your network of reliable and high quality international suppliers.  

In previous years, 85% of Buyers found new suppliers at our inaugural event. Over a third placed orders during the event spending between $10,000 and $1million and 8 in 10 expected to confirm business deals after the event of the same value.

Not only that, ATM is the perfect chance to keep up-to-date with the latest industry trends and innovations, network with peers and make valuable new connections by attending our popular seminars and participating in our networking events programme. 

Use the live Arabian Travel Market event to re-ignite existing business relationships, begin new relationships with new contacts at companies you already work with.
