Exhibitors at this year’s Arabian Travel Market (ATM) will be going all out to showcase their flair and business acumen after it was confirmed that the Exhibitor Awards will be running again.
This will be the third consecutive year that the awards, which recognise the design creativity and business-friendly appeal of exhibiting companies, have been running.
“Arabian Travel Market would not be the huge success it is without the massive amount of effort and investment that goes into creating and manning the exhibitor stands at the show,” said Simon Press, senior exhibition director, Arabian Travel Market.
Press added that stand design is an extension of a company’s brand identity and essential to the visitor’s experience at the event.
This year, the five categories are Best Stand Design, Best Stand for Doing Business, Best Stand Feature, Best Stand Personnel and Best Stand within the Travel Tech Show at ATM.
The judges, tasked with picking the best entries, are Leo Fewtrell, GM, Dubai Travel & Tour Agents Group (DTTAG); Fiona McAndrew-Sharp, sales and marketing director, TTN; Nick Hall, MD, Digital Tourism Think Tank and Daniel Pearce, managing director, TTG Media.
Judging takes place on April 25 with the winners unveiled at a photo shoot, at the event, the very next day. Once the winners have been announced there will be a public vote to determine the winner of the People’s Choice Award.
