The UAE, which is participating for the second consecutive year, will showcase the most popular tourist destinations across all the emirates.

OTM is a major regional and global event that gathers more than 1,000 exhibitors from over 50 countries. It promotes tourism cooperation and expanded access to opportunities in new and promising tourist markets, either from India or from various other countries participating in the show.
