The Maldives’ stand has won the award for ‘Best Stand Feature’ at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2023.
The Maldives’ stand won the award competing with several major destinations.
The award was presented on Wednesday.
The selection was made through an anonymous judging panel visiting the stands, with the award given to the stand with the most unique features and the most engaging experience for visitors.
Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC) described the award as “a testament to the countless hours of work dedicated to curating the Maldives’ stand as the most attractive, vibrant, and energetic stand at the fair.”
Maldives was showcased at ATM 2023 with a double-decker stand, in a space spanning over 429 square meters at the Dubai World Trade Center, providing visitors with a glimpse into the breathtaking Sunny Side of Life.
Every aspect of the stand was thoughtfully curated to showcase the diversity and beauty of Maldivian as a destination, inspired by the geographically scattered islands of the Maldives.
The vibrant and colorful stand consists of 90 co-exhibitor counters along with 53 B2B meeting tables, and is full of exciting experiences for visitors.
The Maldives’ stand featured high engagement with fun quizzes, LED screens showcasing breathtaking sights from the Maldives, and a 360-video booth, where visitors could take videos of themselves. Visitors also received gift bags.
Arabian Travel Market is the leading global event for the inbound and outbound travel industry in the Middle East.
MMPRC joined ATM this year with the largest Maldivian delegation to attend the fair thus far; with over 200 partners representing 90 travel and tourism establishments.
