Celebrating 15 years of presenting the supply chain to the hotel industry in the Middle East and African region. The Hotel Show is the most comprehensive showcase in the region (over 16,700 attendees in 2013) providing a full end to end offering from investment, design and build through to refurbishment, fit out and operations of hotels, restaurants, leisure destinations, and resorts.
This year The Hotel Show will take place from 28 -30 September in Dubai at Dubai World Trade Centre and will be supported by official headline media partners Hotelier Middle East & Caterer Middle East published by ITP Publishing Group.
“Whilst we have been at the heart of the industry for 15 years, we also look forward to the dynamic opportunities that the market here has to offer the international supplier base. The Hotel Show is now established as not just an exhibition but an annual meeting place for sourcing, networking, and education and it makes sense for us to partner with the leading hospitality publisher for this region to ensure we deliver our show message direct to hospitality decision makers, owners and buyers.

Dubai’s Expo 2020 is expected to attract in excess of 25m people, and with it the need for over 45,000 new hotel rooms. With just 6 years until the doors open, The Hotel Show provides suppliers with an opportunity to get on the supplier’s list for major projects by meeting the key decision makers who are the project developers, hotel owners, contractors and interiors-consultants who attend the event to source new suppliers and research new products.
“ The Hotel Show could have a serious impact on an order book – more than $860m was spent by participants last year with an expected spend of almost $4bn for the year ahead. The event is located in a healthily growing marketplace and that is about to get significantly bigger with major projects and developments for EXPO 2020 in Dubai, The World Cup 2022 in Qatar, and massive room expansion in Saudi Arabia and Africa.” Added Davidson
