About the Event

Over the last 3 decades, Dubai has become the global hubs for travel and tourism and today has developed into one of the top destinations for global travelers, becoming a centre of attraction for leisure and business visitors. 2017 marked the establishment of 100,000 hotel rooms and going forward Dubai will continue adding supply to its existing portfolio. With 164 hotel projects currently in the pipeline, 134,000 hotel rooms set in 2018 and with the spotlight now firmly on Dubai as the fastest growing hospitality market in the world, The Hotel Show Dubai is ideally placed to capitalize on this growth within the hospitality sector.


Dubai has redefined the hospitality market for the region and the world, bringing new ideas to the sector. As the city has emerged to one of the world’s foremost travel and tourism destinations, the Hotel Show Dubai has been there at every step, proudly serving the region’s hospitality industry for 18 years. The Hotel Show Dubai provides a 360-degree view of the market with over 600 exhibitors from over 85 countries showcasing products across interiors, lighting and design, technology, security, catering equipment and more. In 2018 the Hotel Show Dubai is helping to redefine hospitality with exciting new features aimed at helping industry professionals keep pace with change. This year we’ll be going further than ever before to integrate every element of the guest experience, from décor, finishes and in-room technologies, to restaurants, leisure facilities and the design of staff uniforms, into the three-day exhibition. Personal and professional development are at the heart of what we do at the Hotel Show Dubai, which offers a unique networking platform that celebrates every facet of hospitality, while also helping visitors develop their skills and knowledge. Live events, educational features, conferences, training workshops and competitions, will all help our visitors learn how innovations in service, new offerings and a constantly improving total guest experience are influencing the development of our industry.


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 be staged during the 3 days of the event.


The Middle East Hospitality Leadership Forum launched in 2017 for the 18th edition of the show, proving to be a key point of the event. The Forum, which saw an impressive panel line up with the region’s leading hospitality influencers and operators including Issam Kassim, CEO, DTCM, featured a series of forthright panel discussions on the key strategic opportunities and challenges shaping the regional sector during this time of accelerated expansion and change. Owners & General Managers from all classes of Dubai’s hotels, resorts, spas, restaurants and event venues including Conor Lawler from The Atlantis Palm and Richard Collins from The Ritz-Carlton, took to the stage in front of a crowded conference room to debate these key topics alongside senior leadership developers, assetmanagers, online travel sites and government. Due to the massive success, The Forum will be back for the 2018 edition of The Hotel Show and for another 3 days, will be staged during each afternoon of the event and completely free to attend
