International Maldives Travel Market (IMTM) Pvt. Ltd. has announced a date change for its fifth edition of their annual travel market fair. The fair is now set to take place on 7th and 8th of September 2022.

The IMTM fair provides participants with a unique platform in the Maldives to connect with over 800 delegates and professionals from across the globe, interact actively not only with existing customers but also boost businesses and close deals with new clients.

The B2B Travel and Trade Fair has been rescheduled to facilitate travel and accessibility for international travel agents and tour operators to ensure the event reaches its full potential.

“We are excited to finally resume our annual travel and trade fair physically this year. Our priority is not simply to hold the event but to make sure we reach as many international markets, travel agents and tour operators as possible so they may explore opportunities in the Maldives. We have decided to hold the fair at a later date to facilitate their travel to our destination.” - Shiuna Khalid, Managing Director of IMTM

IMTM strives to outdo its pre-pandemic performance with the return of the company's Sustainable Tourism Forum (STF) which was last held in 2019. The STF will take place on 6th September, a day ahead of the Travel and Trade Fair.

The forum allows experts from the industry to share their knowledge and experience on sustainable tourism practices geared towards innovation, climate change adaptation and building a resilient tourism industry in the Maldives.

This year, IMTM 2022 explores the theme “Adapt and Rethink Tourism for Resilience”, in line with the hope of reinvigorating the tourism industry as countries all over the world ease COVID-19 restrictions.

The IMTM Fair invites leading tour operators, travel agencies and destination management companies from across the globe providing them with the opportunity to foster relations with key representatives from the Maldives tourism industry.

IMTM has received support from the Ministry of Tourism, MMPRC, Maldives Association of Tourism Industry (MATI) and National Boating Association of the Maldives (NBAM) for IMTM 2022. The event promotes prospects for both inbound and outbound tourism in the country and actively markets the Maldives as a world-class MICE destination.
