Hotel Show 2015 announces new features
Show’s 16th edition to have technology focus and new Design Theatre
The Hotel Show Dubai 2015 has revealed details of some new features for this year’s 16th edition, with technology to be a major feature for the first time in its history.
“There will also be for the first time a key focus on the big trend this year, technology, and it’s not a myth, the hotel industry is really starting to substantially invest in providing seamless and tech driven experiences for guests,” said The Hotel Show Dubai 2015 event director, Christine Davidson.
Additionally, this year’s show will feature a Design Theatre, where architects and interior designers will advise on the latest trends and ideas.
The Hotel Show is again expected to welcome more than 80 speakers from across the globe, sharing expertise and insights with more than 800 delegates.
“As we move towards the 16th edition of The Hotel Show Dubai we can see how much it has transformed into a content filled, informative, business generating business forum where the industry meets to network and share insight,” added Davidson.
“This is such an exciting time in our industry and in this market here in the Middle East. Hotel and leisure development, build and investment is significant and will continue over coming years making it the perfect contract market for global suppliers.
More than 600 companies and thousands of brands from more than 45 countries are expected to exhibit, and this year, the show will have even larger pavilions from Turkey, Portugal and China.
“We know that this year we will be providing the largest procurement opportunity in the region with the very latest collections, products, services and inspiration for hotel and restaurant owners and directors.
“All in all, if you are a hospitality professional, 28-30 September 2015 should already be in your diary for The Hotel Show and The Leisure Show at Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai,” concluded Davidson.
An exclusive new report published by Jones Lang LaSalle for The Hotel Show Dubai revealed yesterday that Dubai is set to see a massive increase of 28,000 new hotel rooms by 2018.

The Hotel Show will take place from 28 – 30 September 2015 at Dubai World Trade Centre.
