IN ASSOCIATION WITH
The Middle East Housekeepers League of Champions
We all know the housekeeping teams are a vital part of any hotel, but how often do we get to see them in action? This year’s Hotel Show Dubai will debut a new competition that will put housekeepers in the spotlight and their skills to the test, as teams from hotels around the country go to head to head in the Middle East Housekeepers League of Champions. This live competition will pitch hotel groups, one against the other, as two staged hotel rooms are set-up back to back and then totally trashed. Two teams will compete head-to-head to get the room spick and span in just 15 minutes. A league of teams will face off against each other to make the final and get a chance at grabbing first place and cleaning up at the end-of-show prize giving.

"Housekeepers attend The Hotel Show Dubai as it provides them with the opportunity to discover what’s new in the market and to identify the latest products and technologies. The expectations of guests are constantly shifting and the housekeeping industry needs to ensure they are sourcing the latest products in the market.
