About the Forum

A central feature of The Hotel Show, The Hospitality Leadership Forum is a series of forthright panel discussions addressing the key strategic opportunities and challenges that are shaping the regional sector at this time of accelerated expansion and change.

The agenda is developed in close consultation with the region’s leading hotel General Managers and offers the audience a rare insight into how they think; how they create, manage and develop critical elements of their properties; how they view the current market and what they’re planning next.

The Middle East Hospitality Leadership Forum will be back in 2019.

The Forum will be back for the 2019 edition of The Hotel Show Dubai and for another 3 days, will be staged during each afternoon of the event and completely free to attend. Once again, the region's leading influencers and operators will be there to provide an unmissable series of discussions, debates, and interviews, giving you a rare opportunity to hear unfiltered insights from a large group of the sector's leadership. If you are interested in becoming a speaker at next years Forum, then please contact Nikita Menezes on E:nikitamenees@dmgevents.com or T:+971 4 445 3764.
