Travel services

The main hub for air transport in the United Arab Emirates is Dubai airport, which is served by several major airlines, most notably Dubai-based Emirates. 

After Dubai, the airport at Abu Dhabi has the next best international connections. Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways offers direct flights to major countries.

Other major airlines serving Abu Dhabi include British Airways and Singapore Airlines from Singapore and Jeddah. For low-cost flights, Air Arabia has set up a hub at Sharjah airport (which is very close to Dubai), and flies there from many cities in the Middle East and India.


Dubai is the global leader in the luxury hotel market and also offers a wide selection of high quality value accommodation for the millions of business travellers who visit every year. The Hotel Show has partnered with the JW Marriott Marquis this year to bring all our visitors and exhibitors 5* luxury accommodation during your stay in Dubai. Not just great room rates but the hotel will offer all Hotel Show guests 20% discount on selected restaurants within the hotel and on pre-booked spa treatments.

With confirmed orders taken from The Hotel Show are expected to top over $12 million of new trade that was made possible very much partly because of the high quality of visitors related to the hospitality procurement and contracting market.
