The Hotel Show Dubai, which was due to take place in September at the Dubai World Trade Centre, has been moved to next year. In a statement announcing the postponement, dmg events said the decision had been based on concerns around the global pandemic, accessibility and for the wellbeing of exhibitors, visitors, speakers and delegates.
The Hotel Show group event director Jasmeet Bakshi said: “The hospitality industry has shown incredible resilience in the face of adversity. As a key meeting place and highlight in the regional calendar, we felt The Hotel Show would better serve our audience if it moved to 2021. This decision will allow the next edition to deliver the market-leading event that we and our many stakeholders expect, without making any compromises.”
The exhibition is co-located with The Leisure Show, INDEX and WORKSPACE, providing the predominant destination for trade business across hospitality, leisure and interior design, welcoming tens of thousands of attendees across the four events each year.
With 20+ years of history, The Hotel Show Dubai is one of the leading hubs for the GCC hospitality market. After the fair dates in 2020 had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Hotel Show 2021 will be held on 31 May – 2 June as part of the second edition of the prestigious Middle East Design & Hospitality Week.
The Hotel Show 2021 will offer a comprehensive showcase that covers every part of the guest experience, from facility design and furnishings to the latest in-room technologies and service offers. This is the ultimate platform for the industry, where suppliers can meet with general managers, hoteliers, designers and restaurateurs for three days of productive discussions and trade. With over 30,000 professional visitors, this is the perfect place to create and strengthen your industry contacts.
The dynamic industry environment is also well represented at the Hotel Show supporting program of events. Among them are the insightful Hospitality Leadership and Hospitality Tech Efficiency Forums and exciting competition like the Chef’s Table and the Hotel Room Design Challenge.
