The surge in demand for space at ATM’s Travel Tech area reflects investor confidence and the increasing value placed on tech-driven solutions. Companies are recognizing the potential of technology to streamline travel experiences, optimize operations across the industry, and offer deeper insights into traveler behavior.

The Arabian Travel Market has become a key platform to showcase cutting-edge travel technology. This year’s sold-out status suggests we can expect significant new developments from established companies and disruptive startups alike. The Middle East’s role as an emerging hub for both travel and technology is also reinforced by this expansion.

More than 100 of the world’s leading travel technology companies will be exhibiting at Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2024, which will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from May 6 to 9.
ATM 2024’s sold-out Travel Tech space will be 56% bigger than last year with 33% more exhibitors participating this year, thanks to unprecedented demand from companies looking to showcase their innovations in front of a global audience.
