Grand Hyatt Doha, Qatar

Almost four years on from the launch of the Qatar National Tourism Sector Strategy 2030, a significant effort and investment from the QTA and its partners has been made to achieve their target to attract 7 million visitors per year by 2030. With continued growth in the hospitality sector and an increasing number of visitors to the country, the possibilities are endless. It is against this backdrop that Hotelier Middle East hosts its seventh annual Qatar Hospitality Summit on the 11th April 2018 at the Grand Hyatt Doha. The summit provides the ideal forum for hoteliers from every department to step back and reflect on how they are going to tackle key operational challenges, meet customer expectations and boost their bottom line over the coming year.
