The Middle East Hospitality Leadership Forum launched this year for the 18th edition of the show, proving to be a key focal point of the event. The Forum, which saw an impressive panel line up with the region’s leading hospitality influencers and operators including Issam Kassim, CEO, DTCM, featured a series of spontaneous and forthright panel discussions on the key strategic opportunities and challenges shaping the regional sector during this time of accelerated expansion and change. Owners and General Managers from all classes of Dubai’s hotels, resorts, spas, restaurants and event venues including Conor Lawler from The Atlantis Palm and Richard Collins from The Ritz-Carlton, took to the stage in front of a crowded conference room to debate these key topics alongside senior leadership developers, asset managers, online travel sites and government. Due to the massive success, The Forum will be back for the 2018 edition of The Hotel Show and for another 3 days, will be staged during each afternoon of the event and completely free to attend. Once again, the regions leading influencers and operators will be there to provide an unmissable series of discussions, debates and interviews, giving our visitors a rare opportunity to hear unfiltered insights from a large group of the sector’s leadership.
