The Arabian Travel Market provides a good opportunity to meet international tour operators and gain wide exposure, says Dubai's Al Bustan Centre & Residence.
Al Bustan is taking part in the exhibition for the fifth year.
"The reason we make sure we always participate is that the ATM is considered one of the exhibitions that provides us with a great opportunity to meet international tour operators thus granting us wide exposure and a chance to discuss mutual business," said an Al Bustan official.
"Furthermore the ATM exhibition is a good source to obtain an update of the ongoing and future activities and promotions that take place and are in relation to our business."
Located at the intersection that separates Dubai from Sharjah, Al Bustan Centre and Residence is mere five minutes from Dubai international airport and barely seven minutes from downtown Dubai.
The luxurious self-contained complex with 640 suites, offers a little something for everyone, be it business or leisure.
It has a fully equipped fitness centre with separate facilities for men and women.
The complex also offers a full-fledged business centre featuring secretarial services, Internet and e-mail facilities.
Nearly 80 outlets make for a convenient in-house shopping centre.
It also features Fantasy Kingdom, one of the largest indoor children's amusement arcades in the UAE and spine tingling rides at the Horror Cave.
The spacious (600 seating) restaurant area caters for a variety of palates, be it Italian, Indian, Oriental, and even for fast-food aficionados with popular MacDonald's and Subway.
For the ATM exhibition, Al Bustan is launching an exclusive offer for travel agent personnel titled the Summer Breez under which special rates are available for travel agency staff plus one guest.
