Arabian Travel Market (ATM) will now take place from 28 June to 1 July 2020 at the Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai.
The decision to postpone the event, which was due to take place from 19 April, was made due to the escalation of the Covid-19 epidemic.
A statement issued by organiser Reed Travel Exhibitions said: “We at Arabian Travel Market want to express our concern for everyone impacted by coronavirus.
“Like all of you, we have carefully monitored the global health crisis related to COVID-19 coronavirus. Our top priority is the health and safety of everyone involved in Arabian Travel Market; employees, partners, customers and exhibitors.
“Whilst the UAE is following the strictest medical and hygiene protocols in line with international standards, we have made this decision in the best interest of the industry to enable us to organise an event which provides effective participation and experience for all.
“The announcement has been made at the earliest opportunity to give as much notice as possible to all stakeholders enabling them to make the necessary arrangements to reschedule their plans, and ensure even stronger attendance in June.
