In 2013, 560 global suppliers from 80 countries showcased thousands of brands covering every aspect of hotel investment, supply, management, refurbishment, fit out, operation and development, to more than 16,500 worldwide attendees. In an already strong marketplace in 2013 the exhibition experienced significant growth with more than 250 additional exhibitors taking part.
So why should you make a journey to Dubai to participate in the largest hotel, resort and restaurant exhibition in the region?
Dubai is not just any city – it is a tourism, trade and travel hub servicing the MENASA region and it just happens to be a first class destination home to some of the most iconic hotels, hospitality and leisure establishments in the world. With a serious growth strategy in place, Dubai leads the world in hotel build and development.
And it’s now about to get much bigger. Dubai alone will require 45,000 additional hotel rooms for EXPO 2020 and expects to invest some 7.1bn USD in the process, Qatar hotel build for the World Cup is already under way and the impressive pipeline of 17,675 four and five star rooms in Saudi between 2012 and 2015 presents its own unique business opportunities.
If you supply, procure, own or manage in the hotel and hospitality sector, there is no better place to come for business.
