“The Hotel Show is one of the most important annual events in our calendar at Dubai Tourism and has played a significant part in driving the hospitality sector by bringing hoteliers together, facilitating partnerships, improving market analysis and understanding, and ensuring alignment with Dubai’s overall tourism vision. The hotel sector in general is the backbone of Dubai’s tourism industry, and it is the calibre of the emirate’s accommodation offerings that has helped shape the high standards and reputation that Dubai enjoys and is known for. Hotels and hospitality have a great part to play in realising Dubai’s Tourism Vision for 2020, which aims to welcome 20 million visitors per year by the start of the next decade. Dubai welcomed 13.2 million international overnight visitors in 2014, so while much progress has already been made, there is still much to achieve. Together, facilitated by the Hotel Show, we can reach and exceed our goals, and drive success and prosperity within the tourism industry as whole.”
-Issam Kazim, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM)
“As always The Vision Conference had good panelists. I was looking for insight on security and technology within the hospitality industry and found it very informative and well organised.”
“One of the best shows around the world showcasing everything including lighting and interiors. Having a single platform for the entire hospitality industry helps to keep us updated, get new ideas and find new innovations.”
“This is my first visit to the show; we have hotel projects ongoing in South Africa and have found the products we came for. I have successfully sourced several companies for quotes and over all I think the show is great.”
“This is our first time at The Hotel Show and we have been able to meet, connect and collaborate with brand owners. Overall it was a good show for us this year.”
