The 14th edition of Hotec Middle East will be held at the Fairmont Baku Flame Towers in Baku, Azerbaijan, between 25-28 April.
An appointment-based hosted buyer event, Hotec runs for three days and includes one-to-one meeting sessions between buyers and suppliers within a programme of meals and networking activities.
At Hotec Middle East, international suppliers have the opportunity to meet and talk business with some of the key hotel industry decision makers sourcing new and innovative products for their existing hotel operations and new projects in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Jordan, Egypt, Bahrain and surrounding destinations.
Different venues throughout the region are selected to host Hotec each year and Azerbaijan’s position on the border of the region and Baku’s location overlooking the Caspian Sea adds a new dimension to this edition of Hotec Middle East.
The event will kick off with a welcome dinner and the following morning, attending delegates are invited to a brief educational seminar which includes a keynote presentation about the state of the hotel industry in the Middle East and a panel discussion.
After this, suppliers will take their places at their tables in the main meeting hall for the first of two full-day sessions of scheduled appointments with attending buyers. Once meetings are over, a networking evening with dinner is planned off-site, giving delegates the opportunity to take in some of the sights of Baku.
Following the second full day of meetings on Thursday, participants will enjoy some free time before getting together for the evening’s farewell reception and dinner.
More than a 100 delegates are expected to participate in Hotec Middle East 2017. Over 20 product categories will be represented by suppliers from all corners of the globe, eager to spend quality time with the attending hotel owners and operators, designers and specifiers, and procurement companies.
