Gulf Education and Training Exhibition (Getex), which will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre from April 12 to 14, will highlight for the first time the booming opportunities available in the hospitality industry, through the participation of Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management (EAHM).

EAHM, a part of the Jumeirah Group, is offering 20% scholarships to those enrolling at Getex, to mark its debut participation in the region’s platform for education providers from across the globe.

Judy Hou, managing director of EAHM, said: “It is a universally accepted fact that the Gulf region has witnessed the most robust growth in construction of new hotels compared to any part of the world. Naturally, professionals coming from top hospitality management universities can expect excellent career and growth prospects. As the region’s renowned hospitality management university, we are thrilled to use the Getex platform to attract students keen to pursue higher studies in this field.”

EAHM’s participation in Getex is significant against the optimistic projections for the Middle East’s hotel and tourism industry. Recent studies show that the region has overtaken Europe in terms of new hotel rooms projected to come up in the next five years.

According to the Middle East Hotel Construction Overview report by Top Hotel Projects, the region is set to add 238,963 new hotel rooms to its current supply, against 214,743 guest rooms set to open in Europe. The UAE tops the list with 222 hotel projects under construction with 126,576 rooms, followed by Saudi Arabia with 143 projects comprising 55,810 rooms.

EAHM, which has academic association with Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, Switzerland, offers BBA and MBA degree programs in International Hospitality Management. The academy is recognised by the UAE Ministry of Education - Higher Education Affairs, the Institute of Hospitality, UK, and International Centre of Excellence in Tourism and Hospitality Education, Australasia.
