The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries are setting the pace in global tourism. Tourism is rapidly growing into one of the Kingdom’s major industries and a key contributor to the national economy. As part of its efforts to support the further growth of the Saudi tourism sector, a delegation from Elaf Group headed by company President Ziyad bin Mahfouz recently joined other distinguished tourism and hospitality services organizations in Dubai to participate again in the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) event.
“The Elaf Group has been able to achieve its goals throughout the years especially in catering to the requirements of those traveling for religious purposes. We have been able to build a strong experience and we are now exchanging expertise with our counterparts in the UAE. We believe in the importance of ATM and other travel and tourism fairs to the industry’s growth; such platforms are of great help in ensuring that travel and hospitality companies achieve their goals,” said Bin Mahfouz.
The latest edition of the Arabian Travel Market, the region’s leading travel industry showcase, was held recently in Dubai and celebrated its 20th anniversary by welcoming over 2,500 exhibitors from 87 countries.
“Elaf remains dedicated to providing a wide range of services under the highest standards of quality and efficiency, following the best international practices. Our team executed our plans for ATM perfectly. We have been able to come back to Jeddah with a number of potential deals for our upcoming hotel, Elaf Bakkah, which is well-timed for the coming Ramadan and Hajj period,” Bin Mahfouz concluded.
