The eighth edition of the Hotelier Middle East: Great GM Debate has now kicked off in Dubai, at the Le Meridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre.

As with every year, the conference includes a series of panel discussions and presentations, where top hoteliers are set to debate industry opportunities and challenges, which will discuss a range of topics including how hoteliers can battle the rate war, why marketing strategies should factor in promoting the destination as a whole, and whether F&B should ditch the discounts. The conference also includes a presentation on engaging the workforce.

The Great GM Debate 2017 also has two keynote speakers this year: Edition Hotels senior vice president and managing director Dan Flannery, and the World Travel and Tourism Council chairman Gerald Lawless.
