General manager, ASAS Exhibitions – organiser of Riyadh Travel Fair, Bander Al Gryni commented: “Last year the Riyadh Travel Fair featured 270 exhibitors with visitor attendance at 27,329. That was an increase of 30 per cent compared to the 2016 edition. This year will continue our year-on-year growth as exhibitors hit over 270 and expected visitors numbers over 30,000.”

Al Gryni continued: “Year after year, we have seen a consistent positive growth on the number of participants, exhibitors and attendees. 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.”
