    Leading global brands join us each year at The Hotel Show Dubai, to showcase their products and services to visitors from some of the world's leading hotel brands. 

    Read on to hear what exhibitors and visitors had to say about last year's exhibition.


    Dubai has proven over and over again its resilience as a stable, mature and continuously growing market. Being a political safe haven, economically stable and with the continuous influx of new attractions, it remains to be in the forefront of people’s travel itineraries.

    I believe The Hotel Show is a one-of-a-kind event, which brings together industry heads, a showcase of the latest trends, developments and evolutions in hospitality as well as suppliers from across the globe.

    Kai Schukowski, General Manager, Kempinski Hotel Ajman


    Many hotel companies in the region are adapting their individual concepts as they are now acknowledging guests who aspire to be different. They prefer experiences which are a deviation from the norms, based on originality, authenticity, design and communications. Everyone has different personal preferences, and unique experiences can be created by providing unforeseen services and this is how the UAE and the region are positioned as key hospitality players worldwide.

    Alexander Schneider, General Manager, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai


    We're really happy to be a part of The Hotel Show Dubai this year and the response and enthusiasm we’re getting from partners and the industry is very encouraging. It’s the reason we decided to come here to launch our new products to the hotels and IT Managers. We’ve had lots of enquiries and we believe this is the right platform to show this kind of innovative technology.

    Vinod Sivaraman – Senior Manager / Hotel TV & Information Display at LG Electronics


    I’m very happy with the exhibition this year, the feedback from clients is good and I think this is the way to be known in the market. You meet people not just from the UAE but from all over the MENA region!
