Rudi Jagersbacher, vice-president of operations, Hilton International, said: "This increased level of international participation is indicative of a resurgence in consumer confidence in the travel sector both regionally and worldwide. All our properties in the Middle East are taking part, as well as hotels from Cyprus, Germany, Italy, Maldives, Mauritius, Munich, Turkey, Thailand and UK."

Having long recognised the Middle East region as one of enormous potential, Hilton now operates 31 regional properties, 14 of which are in the Gulf. As one of the first international hotel chains to enter the UAE market, many of Hilton's most established regional properties are located in the UAE.

Exhibiting at ATM for the 10th consecutive year, Hilton will launch a new summer programme, while also announcing a number of regional and global marketing initiatives for 2003.
