So, this will provide convenience to all participants to steadily recover their business operations from the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
IMTMair provides a variety of useful features for convenience and ease in navigation. The platform also provides promotions of each business as well. Each participating company receives a virtual booth to; customize, upload welcome videos, add products, brochures, and contact details to advertise their business to any interested parties.
Participants can send connection requests and build business relationships to conduct meetings with each other in the future.

In this table, any interested parties may sit to join the conversation, through chat, video or audio call.
Speed Networking will also allow attendees to engage in friendly networking discussions on any topic they wish. To maintain and continue these connections and business relationships made by attendees during the event, a registration fee of $56 per single-user login and $112 for multi-user login, will provide access throughout the year to IMTMair. This platform will allow you to remain connected with these businesses, providing a source of communication solely for that purpose.
IMTM strives to contribute to the steady recovery in tourism in the Maldives. IMTM not only caters resorts and hotels but also other accommodation providers the opportunity to increase competitiveness in the market. Higher growth in such businesses such as liveaboards and guest houses will provide more variety in choice. And also budget and experiences for tourists vacationing in the Maldives.
IMTM aims to aid the government’s objective to boost the local community through the ongoing success in Maldives’ tourism, through rural tourism development, a worldwide movement of 2020.
