World Cup fever comes to Arabian Travel Market

United Arab Emirates: Monday, May 06 - 2002 @ 08:49

The World Cup tickets are among lucky draws being staged on the Korean National Tourism Organisation (KNTO) stand – the first time Korea has been represented at Arabian Travel Market.

Other prizes on offer at the show include two return tickets to Cyprus and three nights accommodation in a consumer day competition staged by Cyprus Airways and New Zealand ‘Black Caps’ cricket jerseys on offer in prize draws on the New Zealand stand.

The ninth Arabian Travel Market sees exhibitors from 56 countries participating with hundreds of products on display, including, for the first time, luxury chartered yacht cruises in Greece.

Also new to the show this year are pavilions from South Africa and Mauritius.

Though largely aimed at trade buyers, the show will be open to the public from 5pm – 8pm on Thursday May 9 and from 4pm – 9pm on Friday, May 10. There’s a small entrance charge for the public – Dhs 5 for an individual and Dhs 10 for a family but with loads of competitions to enter, it represents great value for money. Entry is free for Visa cardholders.

“The consumer sessions allow people to discover everything that’s new in the travel trade, to find out the bargains and plan for that all-important summer vacation,” said Lindsey Kavanagh, Marketing Manager, Overseas Events, Reed Travel Exhibitions, which organises the show.

As with all travel shows, Arabian Travel Market 2002 will be full of razzmatazz and fun. The Indonesian capital Jakarta is bringing one of its finest dance troupes to perform a mix of traditional and modern routines.
