ATM 2015

Being linked with the tourism industry, I have enjoyed every bit of Arabian Travel Mart 2015.

The best part of attending international conferences like these is that you get to learn about the innovation strategy in the tourism field and also meet potential clients that can facilitate the business prospects.

I came across different campaigns conducted by the countries to promote the specific areas of their tourism industry like Africa promoting African Safaris, famous macaroons being served by Swiss, Turkey with the stall of turkish tea, coffee- dates, Kama serving by Korea with the rice drinks. Arabic food- Traditional Arabic Dances -Costumes Photography- Falcon show were giving an amazing middle eastern touch to the mart.

In the end, I would just say that it is really important to keep yourself abreast with the current travel industry trends and innovations for which one has to keep attending conferences like ATM every year.

We had a happy clicking at @ArabianTravelMart2015 #ATM2015

This refers to the system of dowry that is considered as a prerequisite for marriage, which is sometimes not affordable for the middle/lower classes and due to that many girls from these classes remain unmarried. It has now become a national curse, which should not be supported by our society.


I have lately been observing the situation relating to the custom of dowry. There is a family in our neighborhood whose son was getting married and a day before the mehndi function the dowry arrived at their home, which was not according to their expectations. As their demands were high their new in-laws-to-be could not fulfill them; thus the nuptials were called off just four days before the marriage. This was definitely a very embarrassing situation for the girl and her family.

In this day and age, due to skyrocketing prices people cannot afford a meal, let alone the burden of providing dowry. As Humans we should not follow these customs and traditions of our society that are causing hardship to others.

I would like to take this opportunity to request the people around the world that they must try to get out of this age-old tradition of excessive dowry and eliminate it forever. Dowry is indeed a sign of illiteracy and a society cannot flourish when it is being run by greed.
