THE Arab World Travel and Tourism Exchange (AWTTE) featuring a new concept, ‘Venture Via Hospitality’, is scheduled to take place at BIEL Center in Beirut from December 6-9, 2007.
It promises to showcase the latest travel products in Lebanon and the Middle East. “AWTTE is a unique experience offering networking channels between exhibitors and buyers in a friendly and social environment,” says a spokesman. “The opportunity that AWTTE presents to the Arab tourism industry is to act as a hub of lively discussions and business ventures for trade professionals, allowing participants to gain insight into the latest industry trends and network with government officials.”
Lebanon’s attraction as a microcosm of international business and sightseeing activities makes it an ideal setting for AWTTE, which was initiated by the Lebanese Ministry of Tourism in the last decade.
Al-Iktissad Wal-Aamal took charge of AWTTE in its eighth edition, year 2003, with a 30 per cent increase from 2002. The last edition registered more than 1700 squared-meters, 100 exhibitors and 6,700 visitors.
