Hotel News Middle East is proud to present the Leaders in Hospitality Awards 2018 Saudi Arabia.


The inaugural awards will be taking place at the Intercontinental  Riyadh on 3 October and will celebrate excellence and innovation in the hospitality industry throughout Saudi Arabia.

Wissam Younane, CEO BNC Publishing said: “There is so much happening in Saudi Arabia that it made perfect sense to extend the Leaders in Hospitality Awards there.

“It is an exciting market with lots of thrilling new developments and it is only right that we celebrate this. While these have been challenging times for a lot of sectors, the sheer optimism and energy that is coming out of the Saudi Arabian market right now deserves to be celebrated.

“Great things are happening in Saudi Arabia.”

BNC Publishing’s Leaders in Hospitality Awards have become a highlight of the GCC’s hospitality calendar. This is an historic occasion though as it marks the first time that a Leaders in Hospitality Awards has been held outside of Dubai.
