Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 14 March 2019:   The eleventh Riyadh Travel Fair (RTF) 2019, Saudi Arabia’s leading travel industry show, will be held from March 28-30 at Al Faisaliah Tower Hotel. It is expected to provide business networking opportunities, seminars, ministerial discussions, and highlight the tourism industry’s achievements of the past 12 months. Additionally, the fair will provide a great opportunity for the general public to gain first-hand information on the latest tourist offerings and special deals from around the world.

The 2019 edition will be the biggest one to date, with an increase in both the number of exhibitors and expected higher visitor numbers.
