The 14th edition of HOTEC Middle East kicks off tonight with a celebratory dinner in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Suppliers of products and services to the hotel industry from across the globe are coming together in Baku to meet with some of the key hotel owners, operators, designers and procurement specialists in the Middle East, for three days of meetings and networking.
HOTEC has a wide range of activities including two full days of pre-arranged one-to-one meeting sessions between buyers and suppliers, set within a programme of meals, receptions and activities designed to maximise networking opportunities for all participants.
This year’s event has attracted suppliers offering products in over 20 different categories.
The first business day starts with a brief seminar session. Caroline List, international sales manager at TopHotelProjects will make a presentation about Hotel Construction Pipeline in The Middle East, which will be followed by a panel discussion about Creative Sourcing. The panel consists of participating delegates and will be chaired by Patrick Ryan, editor of Hotel News Middle East.
Next on the agenda is a full day of scheduled meetings. Prior to the start of the event, participants have selected their preferred meetings and personalised schedules have been prepared based on the indicated preferences.
The second and final day of meetings will be held on Thursday, 27 April. The event comes to an official close with a farewell dinner that night.
HOTEC Middle East is one of 15 appointment-based events organised by Questex-McLean Events for four different industries worldwide.
