The Hotel Show Dubai is an annual trade exhibition, education platform (Vision Conference) and networking opportunity for hospitality industry professionals in the Middle East and Africa. Now in its 17th edition, it is the only event in the region that showcases everything companies need to build, develop and maintain a hotel or restaurant across the entire spectrum of the industry. This year, it will also cover cleaning and laundry for the first time.
In its 17 years, as the region has become one of the world’s most active markets for hotel construction, The Hotel Show has developed, witnessing significant diversification and growth. It is co-located with The Leisure Show, which entered the mix in 2013 to cater to the region’s growing leisure industry, and last year the events saw more than more than 30,000 attendees combined. New for 2016, Piscine Middle East, the region’s leading pool and spa event, will also be co-located in partnership with GL events.
Technology now represents 22% of The Hotel Show’s product mix, with international technology suppliers, the TecSec Summit, and new for 2016, the Tec-Innovation Zone. Its global reach extends each year with new countries added to its ‘International Village’, now covering 46% of the show floor. Austria is new to the line-up this year.
The popular Vision Conference will return for its 4th edition with international experts sharing insights on themes including food and beverage, investment, lifestyle experiences, and UAE theme parks. Speakers this year include representatives from the W Dubai – Al Habtoor City and Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai, Deloitte, TOPHOTELPROJECTS and more. Day one of the conference will include for the first time a certified training programme on Digital Marketing in partnership with MODUL University Dubai.
