Designing, building and landscaping the grounds of the Middle East’s hotels in the future is one of the topics to be explored at a three day event starting today (Sunday).
Taking place once again at Dubai World Trade Centre from September 28-30, The Hotel Show Dubai will see exhibitors coming from around the world and from across the hotel supply chain as it celebrates its 15th anniversary.
Last year’s event attracted 16,749 guests over three days, with a total of 560 exhibitors.
Each day, The Hotel Show Dubai Careers and Training Networking Workshops will provide a dedicated feature area for visitors to meet prospective employers and network with trade associations and training academies.
“The region’s industry is set to experience unprecedented growth — more than 280,000 new jobs will be created in Dubai alone, where 40% will be allocated to the travel and hospitality industry — and with this will come the need for ongoing training and development,” said event director Christine Davidson.
Meanwhile, around 70 experts from across the industry will contribute to the three-day Vision Conference, which will take place during the show. Topics up for discussion will include shaping the future, sustainability from the ground up, and ensuring a successful business.
“We are confident these areas of focus will not only inspire the audience, but ensure they come away with a greater understanding of global hospitality industry trends, how to drive leisure demand as well as balancing guest satisfaction to meet sustainability requirements and government standards,” said Davidson.
“The programme will also explore emerging markets, address destination marketing, tourism infrastructure and theme parks, plus the power of the exceptional dining experience to drive revenue.”
