H.H. Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council, visited on Tuesday the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2024, the leading global travel and tourism event being held at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from May 6-9.

During his visit, H.H. toured the exhibition area of ATM 2024, which focuses on the theme, ‘Empowering Innovation: Transforming Travel Through Entrepreneurship’. The record-breaking edition of the event features 2,300 exhibitors from 165 countries and shines the spotlight on visionary entrepreneurs in the aviation, hospitality, and entertainment sectors.

His Highness was accompanied during his tour by Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director General of the Dubai Department of Economy and Tourism (DET), and Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM).

H.H. Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed visited the DET pavilion, which showcases the innovative and diverse tourism offerings presented by 129 partners and stakeholders participating in the major annual event. The pavilion also underscores the pivotal role of entrepreneurship and innovation in fostering tourism growth in the emirate, aligning with the objectives of the Dubai Economic Agenda D33.

His Highness also reviewed DET’s achievements in promoting Dubai internationally, which contributed to attracting a record-breaking 17.15 million international visitors in 2023, marking a remarkable 19.4% growth compared to 2022.
