Hotel News ME’s annual publication, The Pipeline Yearbook will return for a 2017 edition with a special focus on female leaders in hospitality.

Featuring exclusive hotel pipeline news and a guide to key territories, the Pipeline Yearbook 2017 will place insight from leading female hoteliers in a first of its kind collaboration across the MENA hospitality industry. pipelineyearbook2017_square

Over 100 pages, last year’s Yearbook featured commentaries from prominent industry leaders including STR, Knight Frank, Colliers and Viability Management Consultants, as well insight on key markets from Iran to Africa, from Rotana Hotels, Movenpick Hotels and Resorts, Katara Hospitality, and others.

The second edition of the Yearbook  will once again detail a comprehensive list of upcoming hotels across the Middle East and Africa; data is compiled exclusively by the Hotel News ME team, in direct liaison with the region’s leading hotel chains and therefore unavailable elsewhere.

Commenting on the decision to highlight female leaders in the region, Diarmuid O’Malley, Group Publishing Director, BNC Publishing, said: “According to a study conducted by Mercer, a quarter of Middle Eastern organisations have no female leadership in their 100 most senior roles. Meanwhile, female leaders hold more than 30% of senior positions in only 4% of organisations across the MENA region – a stifling low number in comparison to males in senior leadership positions. We believe that a change in workplace perceptions is coming, which is why BNC Publishing has taken the strategic decision to hear from the female hoteliers leading on initiative and hard work about their achievements and struggles in battling it out for their place in the MENA hospitality marketplace.”
