THE CONFERENCE

2020 has placed the mission-critical role of housekeeping on the international stage.

Excellence, flexibility, innovation and efficiency in housekeeping management now stands at the very forefront of hotels’ ability to function properly and attract guests.

The Hotel Show Dubai is proud to host the 2021 UAE Professional Housekeepers Group Meeting, in what will be the first public gathering of regional housekeeping professionals since the beginning of 2020.

Leading housekeeping experts and practitioners will be holding interactive, in-depth discussions and tutorials on all aspects of our profession. You’ll receive advice on how to maintain excellence in the face of new market conditions, new technologies, new techniques, constraints, regulations and products. You’ll also hear insight on new guest behaviours and perceptions and how you can accommodate and exceed them.
