#ATM2016 Day 3 – Were you there?

Arabian Travel Market, 26 Apr 2016 11:39

Day three of #ATM2016 was business as usual. Quality and quantity of exhibitors, visitors and buyers, plus another packed day of education across the ATM Event Programme.


ATM leaders breakfast…
It was a prestigious start to day three at #ATM2016, when 100 heads of private sector travel organisations were welcomed to the inaugural ATM Leaders Breakfast.

Following breakfast, Sir Rocco Forte, Chairman of Rocco Forte Hotels took to the stage, having an fascinating conversation with BBC World News and HARDtalk presenter Zeinab Badawi.

We spoke to Rocco following for a round-up of how it all went.



Thinking outside the box…
Today’s Finding Your Niche session proved extremely popular with travel agents looking to ‘think outside the box’ in order to identify new source markets for business.

The expert panel included senior representatives from the likes of Abercrombie & Kent, Crystal Cruises, Minor Hotel Group, Serendipity and Emirates Holidays.

We chatted to Moderator and Director of Content Inc Gemma Greenwood after to session for a summary of the key points.


The best stand is…
Last night saw #ATM2016 Best Stand winners crowned across a number of categories such as Best Stand Design and Best Stand Personality.

But earlier today we spoke to Ehab Yasin from Amadeus to find out exactly what and how they won.



How is Gen Z finding travel inspiration?
That question was certainly answered over in the Travel Tech Theatre earlier today. CEO and Founder of Digital Tourism Think Tank, Nick Hall and Entrepreneur & Investor at Xische & Co, Danish Farhan where on stage to talk all things snapchat generation.

Danish gave us a short summary of the session when we spoke to him following.
