SHOW DESCRIPTION: The Hotel Show is the most important trade fair dedicated to the hospitality industry in the Middle East, and is recognized as the largest hospitality event for the MENA, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) & emerging markets. The Hotel Show 2014 promises to provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers of hotel and hospitality products to meet decision makers that comprise the Middle East region and beyond.
The future of hotel development in Middle East and Africa remains bright, with a total of 478 hotels totaling 119,233 rooms in the pipeline. Dubai has the biggest number of hotel rooms under construction in the Middle East and Africa region. The UAE is expected to continue to lead new project development as 100 new hotels will be built as part of the multi-billion dollar Mohammed Bin Rashid City project. EXPO 2020 will bring in multi-billion dollar projects to Dubai with significant expected increase in 3–and 4-star classified hotels as well as luxury hotels.
The GCC completed projects in the hotel sector were worth $6.1 Bn in 2013 and $5.9 bn due to be completed in 2014.
Growth forecast of $27 Bn is expected in the GCC hospitality market by 2015!
