The 11th Riyadh Travel Fair (RTF), scheduled to take place form March 28-30 at Al Faisaliah Tower Hotel, is expected to be the largest edition of the event to date, following an increase in exhibitors and an expected rise in visitor numbers.
The event will provide exhibitors and attendees with business networking opportunities, seminars and ministerial discussions, while simultaneously shedding light on the tourism industry’s achievements over the past year. It will also provide the public with a great opportunity to gain first-hand information on the latest tourist offerings and special deals spanning the globe. More than 300 exhibitors representing more than 55 countries will take part this year.
General manager, ASAS Exhibitions (the organiser of RTF), Bander Al Gryni said: “Last year the RTF featured 270 exhibitors with visitor attendance at 28,695. That was an increase of 39 per cent compared with the 2016 edition just three years ago. This year, we will continue our year-on-year growth as exhibitors cross the 300 mark and the expected number of visitors goes beyond 30,000.”
