Emirates returns to the 2016 edition of Arabian Travel Market (ATM) with a brand-new, futuristic ‘Infinite Possibilities’ stand that showcases its industry-leading products and services. Emirates will also present its enhanced Boeing 777 Business Class seat for the first time in its home base of Dubai during the show, in addition to other iconic products such as the Emirates A380 Onboard Bar, First Class Shower Spa, and its latest, generously-pitched Economy Class seats. The region’s leading travel exhibition gets underway on Monday 25 April.
Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer said: “ATM is one of the most important events on the travel exhibition calendar and an ideal platform to showcase the business developments at Emirates to the travel and tourism industry. It also brings together key industry stakeholders from around the globe. We look forward to the many productive meetings and seminars, and we welcome the opportunity to network and cultivate stronger relationships with our trade partners, which will in turn help us explore highly targeted business and growth opportunities.”
Standing at 8.5 metres tall and taking almost 9 days to assemble, Emirates’ ‘Infinite Possibilities’ stand, will be one of the tallest exhibitor stands at ATM, with a total finished weight of 166 tonnes. This is equivalent to one third of an Emirates A380’s total tonnage. Click here for a show around and what to expect while visiting the ‘Infinite Possibilities’ stand.
