Slovakia and Cambodia are among countries exhibiting for the first time at this year's Arabian Travel Market (ATM).

The show takes place in Dubai from 5-8 May and expects to attract 15,200 visitors, compared to 14,500 last year.

This year will also see 2,500 exhibitors, representing 65 countries.

The Philippines, Ecuador, Vietnam and Mozambique will also exhibit at ATM for the first time.

The C&I market in the Middle East remained buoyant, said Reed Travel Exhibitions group exhibition director Mark Walsh.

"The [outbound] UK is still the main C&I market but Russia is also becoming a strong market," he told C&IT.
