HIS MAJESTY KING ABDULLAH II  WILL BE  ROYAL PATRON

OF FIRST AMERICAN TOURISM SOCIETY CONFERENCE

TO BE HELD IN AMMAN JORDAN, MARCH 6-11, 2005

 

New York, NY - January 21, 2005 - The American Tourism Society (ATS) announced that His Majesty King Abdullah II will be Royal Patron for the ATS Annual Spring Conference to be held in Amman, Jordan, March 6-11, 2005 at the InterContinental Hotel Amman. ATS delegates will have the opportunity to meet H.M. King Abdullah II at a special reception during the conference.

 

Michael Stolowitzky, ATS President and CEO, in making the announcement, said "it was only one year ago that ATS, under its new slogan - Bringing the World Together -   announced it’s expansion to the ‘Red/Med’ Region with the formation of the Mediterranean Red Sea Council, with H.E. Akel E. Biltaji, Special Advisor to H.M. Abdullah II King of Jordan, as Vice Chairman of the Council. We are very pleased that H.E. Biltaji, who is a also a member of the ATS Board of Directors, and Dr. Alia Bouran, Jordan’s Minister of Tourism, have responded so positively and quickly to this exciting opportunity to be the first country in the Red/Med region to host an ATS conference. We are most honored that H.M. King Abdullah II will be the Royal Patron of what promises to be an historic event for ATS and in the promotion of Jordan and the ‘Red/Med’ region."

 

In an unprecedented move during the USTOA annual meeting in Miami, Florida, December 6, 2004, H.E. Biltaji extended a personal invitation to the USTOA members and the travel industry from H.M. King Abdullah II, to come to Jordan for the ATS Spring Conference. According to H.E. Biltaji, "In this extraordinary step, H.M. King Abdullah II has clearly demonstrated the vital role that tourism plays in our country’s economy and in creating a culture of peace through tourism. We are confident that ATS delegates will be impressed by the diversity and excitement of the Jordanian tourism product, and by the peace and stability of our country,” said H.E. Biltaji.

 

ATS delegates will have the opportunity to participate in a program of seminars and meetings comprising tour operators, airlines, cruise lines, hotel companies, travel agencies and other travel interests in the region. The Meeting will kick off with a welcome reception upon arrival, followed by two full days of meetings focusing on marketing and travel trends in the region and a trade show, showcasing the area’s tourism attractions. Invited speakers will feature a cross-section of travel industry leaders including H.E. Akel E. Biltaji; H.E. Dr. Alia Bouran; Dr. Michael R. Edwards, V.P. and G.M., American Express Services Europe and Mr. Robert E. Whitley, President of USTOA. 

 

ATS founder and Chairman Alex Harris, CTC, noted "I am optimistic that this breakthrough into what is for ATS, a new area of the world, will help make Jordan the next hot destination for American tourists." Harris continued "we look forward to welcoming our USTOA and Travel Industry colleagues to join us in Jordan at what promises to be a major step forward in the continual growth and development of ATS as a strong force in promoting tourism to all our regions: Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Central Europe, the Baltics, and now the ‘Red/Med’ Region."

 

 

An ATS Spectacular - Petra by Night

Among the conference highlights, delegates will be spending two nights in Petra at the Crowne Plaza Petra Hotel, the only hotel within walking distance to perhaps the most famous attraction in the country, the ancient city of Petra, also known as "the Lost City in Stone". Upon arrival, participants will walk half a mile through a deep narrow desert chasm with walls that soar 560 feet upward to access Petra's most famous monument, the Treasury, for the spectacular "Petra by Night," an event organized for ATS conference attendees exclusively.

 

After Petra, other marvels await ATS participants’ en-route to the Dead Sea. Wadi Araba, sometimes called "Lawrence of Arabia" country is the largest and most magnificent of Jordan's desert landscapes still roamed by Bedouins. On arrival at the Jordan Marriott Resort everybody will be pampered and continue to experience Jordan's unique in–depth "Royal Treatment."

 

The Conference will end up on a high note, with a farewell gala dinner hosted by the Jordan Tourism Board.

 

There will be post tours available to other sites within Jordan, as well as to Egypt and Israel.

Travel Talk Radio believes
T
ravel is a catalyst for creating communication, peace, and commerce among the countries 
and communities of the world. It's difficult to fight with a culture where you have shared a glass of refreshment, 
visited their neighborhoods and experienced their customs. And besides its really fun to get out there and jump on a train, 
bus or plane, walk into a new environment, 
taste new interesting food and talk with the locals. Building memories that are packed 
with experiences of extraordinary places, great people and exciting events are at 
the cornerstone in living a fruitful and harmonious life.
