The ninth Riyadh Travel Fair will be held from April 7 to 10 at Al Faisaliah Hotel.
A press release said that the event, the largest of its kind in Saudi Arabia, will be attended by more than 250 exhibitors from over 50 countries, and is expected to attract 30,000 visitors.
Riyadh Travel Fair (RTF) 2017 will be a four day event, and will provide business networking opportunities for professionals and host seminars and discussions about KSA’s travel industry.
This year’s event would be the largest yet, in terms of exhibitor numbers and expected number of visitors, the release said.
Bander Al Gryni, general manager, ASAS Exhibitions, which is organising the fair, said, "Last year the Riyadh Travel Fair featured 246 exhibitors with visitor attendance at 25,724. That was an increase of 30% compared to the 2015 edition. This year will continue our year-on-year growth as exhibitors hit over 250 and expected visitors numbers over 30,000.”
“With Saudi nationals increasingly travelling both domestically and overseas, the opportunities that the Riyadh Travel Fair provides for domestic and overseas destinations, hospitality service providers and other tourism related businesses, to directly meet with the kingdom’s leading travel professionals and travellers has never been more significant,” he said.
The fair will be open to both travel industry professionals and the general public, who will gain special discounts on travel packages and also in-depth information about destinations they wish to visit.
Visitors will be able to interact with tourism authorities, hotels, airlines, as well as travel agents from around the world.
