The Hospitality Engineers Middle East Annual Conference

Imagineering the future of engineering

Smart engineering and maintenance operations are the backbone of all good hotels, controlling a substantial percentage of operating budgets and exerting huge influence over the smooth running of their properties and in particular, guest perceptions, safety and security.

The Hotel Show is proud to welcome The Hospitality Engineers Middle East 2022 annual conference. This conference is the first of its kind in the Middle East: an association of hotel and hospitality engineers that aims to regulate professional standards, skills development and build alliances among engineers across the region.

Our 2022 agenda is currently in progress, but you can view our 2021 agenda below to see what discussion panels took place at our last show.

This highly concentrated one-day meeting will provide all hospitality engineering professionals with an opportunity to network and learn from leading technical and management staff from across the region. A series of short, solution focused discussions and debates will address key technical, management, communication and career advancement techniques and issues facing this vital profession at this vital time.

CPD certificates of attendance will be provided to all participants, and the day will conclude with the presentation of special recognition awards for outstanding performance in the field over the last year.


Discussion topics included:

  • Engineering laws, inspections and regulations: does hospitality need to rethink its current approach?
  • Quantifying the overall cost and value of engineering operations to your property
  • Assessing the quality and cost of outsourced vs. in-house engineering and maintenance
  • Incentivising engineering to drive performance: which KPIs and reward systems lead to improved results?
  • Engineering and leadership career paths: why do so few hospitality engineers become GMs?
