Indonesia’s participation in ATM Dubai is one of the active efforts to market Indonesian tourism in the international arena. The Middle East region itself is an area that is included in the list of Indonesia’s main markets which is very strategic.

“And we are targeting transactions obtained at ATM Dubai 2023 can reach 55 thousand pax with a focus on improving four aspects, namely experience, quality, sustainability, and luxury tourism,” Sandi said.

Indonesia’s participation in this exhibition cannot be separated from the role of Indonesian tourism industry players who carry out collaborative marketing.

At the ATM Dubai 2023 exhibition, Kemenparekraf conducted two main activities. First B2B (Business to Business) meeting by bringing together the Indonesian tourism industry (sellers) with potential buyers. In the world of tourism business, direct meetings between sellers and buyers are an important milestone for the existence of Indonesian tourism in the world tourism industry competition.
