Buyers at ATM

What is a buyer?

Are you a buying decision-maker in the Middle Eastern travel industry? If yes, attending Arabian Travel Market as a Buyer is an exclusive and very effective way to source and grow your network of reliable and high quality international suppliers, over just four days.

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.

What is the Buyers Club?

If you’re a buying decision-maker in the Middle Eastern travel industry, you deserve to be recognised and have access to the right environment for doing business, with access to other people at your level. You deserve to be in the Buyers’ Club.

Buyers’ Club members have significant budgets for travel products, and are often looking for new types of suppliers. As a Buyers’ Club member you’ll have the opportunity to expand your connections in the comfort of dedicated lounges during the show.

The club facilitates networking, providing the opportunity to meet, greet and discuss business, leading to contracts being signed whilst expanding connections. The ATM Buyers’ Club is going from strength to strength and is considered one of the best places in Dubai to conduct business and find new business partners.

Registrations for the ATM Buyers’ Club are now open.
