The accolades will recognise the ‘creative design and people skills’ of the best exhibitors
Arabian Travel Market (ATM) has announced new categories at this year’s ATM Best Stand Awards 2022.
The awards will recognise creative design, people skills and the business-friendly appeal of exhibiting companies’ stands at the annual trade fair, which will take place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 9 to 12 May 2022.
The five categories this year will be: Best Stand Design, Best Stand for Doing Business, Best Stand Feature, Best New Stand, Best Stand at ATM Travel Tech and the People’s Choice Award.
Speaking about the awards, Arabian Travel Market exhibition director ME Danielle Curtis, said: “Arabian Travel Market would not be the huge success it is without the incredible amount of effort and investment that goes into creating and manning the exhibitor stands at the show.
“Since its inception, the award programme has not only recognised exhibitor’s efforts but has also encouraged exciting, fresh and creative stands.”
Judging will take place on Tuesday 10 May, the second day of the show, with the winners announced on day three. The judging panel will comprise journalists and industry speakers, such as STR area director MEA Philip Wooller.
Curtis added: “With more than 2,000 exhibiting companies spread across 10 exhibition halls, the judging panel will have a lot of ground to cover.”
Once the winners have been selected, they will be put to the public vote for a chance to walk away with the People’s Choice Award. Calls for votes will be made via social media, with the winner announced on Thursday 12 May. All the results will be shared with a global audience via ATM’s social media platforms.
