Danielle Curtis is excited future for region’s meetings and events market
“The meetings and events market in the Middle East is still very much in the ascendant, with confidence in the region continuing to grow, as evidenced by major upcoming events like the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022 and the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi in 2019,” she said.
“Countries such as Saudi Arabia and Oman are also increasingly making their mark on the industry and raising their profile as viable destinations, cementing the region’s position as a highly desirable and competitive offering for the events market. As a result of the dynamic nature of the industry here, many exciting opportunities are on the horizon both for IBTM Arabia and the industry as a whole.
Originally from Australia, Curtis was previously contract exhibition manager for Arabian Travel Market, part of Reed Travel Exhibitions.
