Grand finale to tourism expo
The four-day travel and tourism show — the Arabian Travel Market — concluded on Thursday with a lot of fanfare. More than 2,400 participants from 87 countries were featured in this annual event, the largest of its kind in the Middle East, a region that receives 55 million tourists a year. Although the Arab Spring has taken its toll on the region’s tourism industry, the first quarter statistics show that the industry is returning to normalcy — and for the UAE, the traffic is growing. Gulf News brings you glimpses of the final day’s activities.
