The 2017 edition of The Hotel Show Dubai saw the debut of The Middle East Housekeepers League Of Champions, the first for the region, putting housekeepers in the spotlight and their skills to the test. The live competitionpitted teams from resorts across the Middle East against one another, tasking them with sprucing-up ransacked hotel rooms against the clock. In total, 26 different hotels took part, with Fairmont Dubai being crowned the region’s finest and taking home the gold after a nail-biting final with neighboring Rose Rayhaan by Rotana, watched by hundreds of excited spectators. The three-day contest put two teams of housekeepers head-to-head at a time, giving them just seven minutes to out their messy rooms back to their

original states and the teams were challenged with cleaning them to the highest standard.

The final results were determined by a judging panel featuring three members of the UAE Professional Housekeepers Group: Pamini Hemaprabha, Tatjana Ahmed and Lakmal Mawella, who scored every round based on technique, timing, cleanliness and overall impression.

Housekeeping teams are a vital part of any hotel and are often the unsung heroes. The Middle East Housekeepers League Of Champions gives these teams the opportunity to showcase their skills and the technicalities involved in proper guest room cleaning and maintenance, as well as the hard work put in to achieve a perfect overall impression.

Due to the success, the competition will be back for the 2018 edition of The Hotel Show Dubai and will once again be staged during the 3 days of the event.
