ATM is pleased to welcome Cristal Group to its lineup for the exhibition scheduled for April 24-27. ATM is a global event for the Middle East inbound and outbound travel industry, and is now in its 24th year, generating more than $2.5 billion in travel industry deals.
Cristal Group has several projects lined up for opening that will be unveiled at Arabian Travel Market 2017 (ATM). Confirming the group’s participation at the exhibition, Mr. Kamal Fakhoury, CEO of Cristal Group, stated, “ATM is the Middle East’s premium travel and tourism show, and offers us the perfect platform to not only promote our existing properties but launch our upcoming projects. GCC and the Levant region remain the main focus of our expansion strategy where we have some fantastic hotels in development that will be launched during ATM. In addition, we also have some strategic new announcements to share with the local and international travel trade.”
Cristal Group has demonstrated excellent growth with a diverse portfolio of properties, and has quickly established itself as a key player in the regional hospitality sector. Elaborating on the upcoming projects, Mr. Fakhoury said, “We have been in the midst of extensive development that has given us access to fabulous new destinations such as Abha region in Saudi Arabia that was recently named capital of Arab Tourism 2017. At Cristal Group we are proud to be the first ones to enter the region with Bayat Hotel by Cristal that is Abha’s first 5-star property and is ready for opening in June 2017.”
